Credit Union, current signers met at Vancity and signed papers for new

Storage, everything is out of Maple Leaf Storage. Done before
additional payment done. Next step is to work on inventory tracking
spreadsheet. Eric to bottom-line.
Outstanding reimbursements: Porta-pottie invoice will be paid in full
by Council of Canadians national. No other receipts presented for

multiple people and disbursement of our resources. Bob will follow up

system strike since not coming from union movement. No budget proposal
