Chairman Heintz called the meeting to order at 7:05 PM.
General comments included an update on the Rutland Area Flea Market weekend fundraiser and ideas for the introduction of our Affiliation to the public in January or February.
Current status of Affiliation – Rob gave an update on the progress of filing for Articles of Incorporation (delayed slightly due to a technicality correction). As soon as they are received, the final information will be forwarded to HFHI.
Donation Property(ies) – Without the full completion of our legal status, we are not ready to accept any donation of real property. Of those under consideration, a number of questions were identified: closing costs and fees; property tax obligations and other fees, insurance concern, liability concerns, building restrictions, etc. The Directors agreed to continue gathering information.
Committees and Board Development – The Committee rosters were reviewed. Chris asked each Director to come prepared for the next meeting with a list of 3 people who might be candidates for future Habitat involvement. The candidates do not need to be vetted, just identified for discussion.
Other business – Treasurer Gilman indicated she received a Corporate Resolution identifying her as the authorized signer for checks. She asked if that was correct. Melissa Hayden moved to authorize the Treasurer to sign checks up to $250. Beyond that amount, two officer signatures are required. Seconded by Dave Pearson. Motion approved.
Julia Quimby-Cohen presented $118 cash to the Treasurer, the proceeds of the weekend flea market sales collected to date.
Rob Geiszler moved to adjourn. Dave Pearson seconded. Motion passed.
