12/30/11 – General Assembly Minutes (7pm)

December 31, 2011 in GA resolutions, Meeting minutes

Jason from Events committee had an announcement, that they had decided to focus on more events, albeit smaller direct-action types.
Sara from Outreach committee had an announcement on the veterans organization, which was turned into a proposal.
Jo from the Unnamed working group announced a fundraiser planned for Jan 24th, to begin at 5-5:30. Booths are planned, venues are being located, the highlight of the night is a mock State of Dis-Union address, to be followed by an Occupy Denver fashion show and a raffle.
On the agenda were two proposals to form new committees and one proposal to set the theme for the Jan 14th march.
The first proposal, which passed unanimously on a vote of 23-0-0, was to form a new committee tasked with resource development. This is the same group which is doing the Jan 24th fundraiser. The name of the group is TBD, as the working name was deemed exclusive and no one cares to call it Resource Development.
The second proposal, which passed on a vote of 21-0-1, was to designate the Jan 14th march as being for American veterans. Outreach has already contacted veterans associations and Oathkeepers to participate.
The third proposal, which passed unanimously on a vote of 25-0-0, was to re-form the Legal committee. DABC is handling training for committee members, and several members of GA signed up to join the newly re-formed committee.
General announcements were re-opened after the agenda items. The new committees were informed they would be getting email packages from Admin to coordinate paperwork and meeting notes, and the PR committee – version 2.0 – was roundly commended for their excellent work after the committee shake-up. GA was dismissed at 8:20.
These are the notes for voting GA 12-30-11.
