7:16 Coalition Corner – Shaun
Shaun will submit it in writing. This is an Action Item.
7:17 Hosting the SW Regional Leadership Conference – Minnie
National asked if we would like to host a training in person.
Minnie says this would be a good opportunity to do regional organization and get to know them better.
Anthony asked when this needed to be known.
Minnie said that Garrick would like a response probably within 2 weeks.
Anthony wonders if we should hold off on this until we discuss what we should do in the next few months. Possibly a retreat or a debrief such as what Jackie has put in the Slack. He does not feel confident until we have that discussion. Also, there is the consideration of the new COVID strain.
Tiffany – Is there a time when this is happening?
Minnie – January – March possibly.
Tiffany – Unsure if we should hold a large event indoors with people coming out of town because of safety.
Minnie – I will post it in Slack so we may look it over more.

7:25: Mutual Aid Priority Report – Justin
We had our first successful Mutual Aid Review Board meeting. 2 people were able to receive transportation aid. The next Mutual Aid and Review Board Meeting will be https://lvdsa.org/events/mutual-aid-meeting-2021-12-09/
Lorenzita – How are you getting folks to apply for aid?
Justin – Possibly bump in the Slack weekly. Possibly call individuals who are not on Slack.
Mike – Planned to send out an email and will connect with Justin.
Aimee – We are actively searching for a Steward for the Mutual Aid priority.
7:29 Merch for December – Paul John
Tiffany – I think we already tapped out a budget for organizer shirts.
Anthony – We could sell buttons.
Lorenzita – Brendan already made buttons.
Anthony – It is possible that we now owe money to Brendan because the buttons were $3 and we were giving them away. Do we owe money?
Aimee – Brendan has not filed for reimbursement. Aimee will ask Brendan about what he intended on the box that said $3. Action Item.
Aimee – We can ask the general body for the budget for merch. We might want to do limited runs per month. Potentially hats and shirts. I want to know how many shirts we have left of what sizes. We want to offer the new folks t-shirts.
Tiffany – Will make a spreadsheet of the shirts.
Paul John – Are we going to motion?
Tiffany – Members need notice before anything so we would need to do an emergency meeting.
Anthony – We can make smaller purchases up to $600 per the purchasing resolution. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1pd1V3JcNrOL3_VTB8TQlPSjla63_I70kkcWzWBFSx8M/edit
Aimee – Thank you, Anthony.
Tiffany – We do still need that ratified if we opt for that
Anthony – Suggest that we table it and put this in Slack so we know exactly what we can get with $600.
7:44 Nomination of Roy Zuniga as an electoral steward – Anthony
Tiffany Seconds (also thirds and forth to emphasize how much she wants Roy to be a steward)
Anthony – Cody, and Valerie have a great eye for local politics. Roy, also being in the National Electoral Committee, has a good eye for electoral politics. Roy would be able to fill in spots where two other stewards cannot.
