Voting items

  • Proposal from Simon: Vote on adding wording noting that all donations are final, so people can't un-donate stuff. It's a PITA.
  • Amend the section of the constitution that "any donations in cash or in-kind donations are made as a permanent and non-refundable donations. These donations cannot be rescinded, in part or in whole. A member may elect to loan equipment but must submit a written notification to the board before or at the time of loaning. The loaner must attach a semi-permanent label stating that it is a loan and it is the responsibility of the loaner to maintain this label."
