Financials/Ops Report & Budget - Budget has been updated,
but may need to be reworked as Laura becomes familiar with
the consortium's financial activities. ACTION: Laura to distribute
finalized budget, and to schedule review for updates as necessary
(6+ weeks from now)
CGM Open - if CGM Open decides to withdraw membership during
the trial period, they've asked that a pro rata share of their
be refunded. Our response is that it is extremely complicated
from an accounting standpoint. If they do withdraw, we would
refund the entire amount that has been transferred to us,
minus any direct expenses we incur on their behalf. We would
retain any dues paid during the time CGM Open operates under
our umbrella. NOTE TO LAURA: members of both should earmark
their money for spending on either OASIS or CGM Open items.
Remember to remind members of this when invoicing.
