220 minReport on fundraising and development invoice amounts

Invoices from contract development have caught up to fundraising.

Update on membership renewals.

Proposal for next month:

  • authorize invoicing up to $50,000 between now and August, with extended payment terms
  • authorize the use of the line of credit if necessary (at the end of payment term)
  • recognize that development will slow for the remainder of summer due to holidays
  • continue fundraising to close the gap

Mic will be coordinating Leadership Elections in the coming weeks.

1) We need to run elections even though we don't yet have 100% on membership renewals.

2) Question: Should DSpace keep the 1 guaranteed seat for the gold members as for the previous year?

3) Request: Are any leaders willing to reach out to members at their tier level to solicit candidates?
