Interim steering committee meeting

Conrad W.
Chicago, IL
Wednesday evening, May 22, we shall gather at a location to be announced later for a planning session.   

NOTE: This is not a regular "meetup" event:   Any member is welcome to attend who is willing to work on serious issues, including program planning, venue selection, and financial management.   Agenda items will include, but are not limited to:

  • Action on the proposed bylaws.  (I favor declaring them adopted and in effect, based on the 15-to-0 approval vote, small as it was.)
  • Further membership rules.  e.g. should voting members be required to use their real names?
  • Selection of topic, speaker, and venue for the September meeting, which is concurrent with the Standards Committee meeting/
  • Budget for the coming year, possibly including membership dues or meeting attendance fee.
  • Guidelines for future meetings and other activities, such as tutorial sessions.
  • Planning for election of permanent officers for 2013-2014.  (Slate of candidates, voting procedure, etc.)

Assuming adoption of (1) this should be the last meeting of the interim steering committee.   Attendees may be asked to contribute a share of the meetup fee, which Jay Shachter has advanced.


We would be grateful to anyone with a quiet conference room downtown who can host this meeting.  If no one responds, I can try for Loyola or fall back on my Jefferson Park house.

Since no one else volunteered, I've secured a conference room at Loyola, Lewis 415. Let's try to start by six o'clock.

Lewis Tower is officially at 820 N. Michigan Avenue, facing the Water Tower, but the entrance is around the corner on Pearson, just west of the Hershey chocolate shop. The conference room holds about a dozen people, so I'd appreciate your letting me know if you're coming.

We regret that our interim leader, Jay Shachter, has to be out of town, but he'll make his views known on our agenda items or any other issues he wants us to address.

We're not providing food or refreshments, but you're welcome to bring something from any of the nearby carry-out shops.
