7:15 – Motion to Move Storage Unit

  • Summary: Owing to the fact that the current storage unit is in a hard-to-access location, and that location being in an active construction zone that will be active till at least June of 2021, this motion authorizes the Chair, or an EC member the Chair will designate as their discretion, to move the physical assets of the TCLP out of the current Public Storage unit into another unit of comparable size and cost. If not executed, this authorization will expire at the next business meeting of the TCLPEC.

7:28 – Motion to Purchase Business Cards for EC

  • Summary: The TCLP is lacking in some basic materials to help spread the message. Therefore, this motion authorizes the Chair, or an EC member the Chair will designate as their discretion, to spend up to $100 to order 1,000 business cards to contain basic information about the party, such as major ways to get in touch with the party. A graphic designer shall be consulted ( Anna Sparkman will be given the first opportunity ) on the design of the business cards. The final design shall be posted to the TCLP Discord Announcements section 7 days before placing the order for comment by the party. Any member of the TCLP Executive Committee may use the business card design to acquire contact cards for that individual ( at their own expense ) using the same design. This spending authorization shall expire on 03/31/2021.

7:35 – Motion to Purchase MeWe Page

  • Summary: In an effort to diversify our communications and engagement with our members outside of Facebook, this motion authorizes the Chair, or an EC member the Chair will designate as their discretion, to purchase a TCLP page on the social media platform, MeWe.

7:40 – Motion to Create Rules Committee

  • Summary: The current Bylaws of the TCLP are both confusing and could be interpreted by different people to have contradictory meanings. During 2020 the issues with the Bylaws caused a large amount of confusion and diverted the attention of the TCLP away from its primary mission. To rectify this problem, this motion creates a special Rules committee to revise the bylaws of TCLP. The committee will generate a series of recommendations and schedule a Special Meeting of the TCLP to consider adoption of these bylaws. The chair of the Rules committee will be Donavan Pantke, and the other members shall be Elizabeth Miller, Sean Sparkman, and Jocelyn Pantke. Since a married couple is on the committee, the committee chair, as in the main TCLP body, shall not vote on any matters requiring a vote, except to break a tie. The committee will require at least 2 members present to form a quorum, of which one of the attendees must not be Donavan or Jocelyn Pantke. The Rules committee’s authorization will expire either at the adjournment of the special meeting of the TCLP where the committee’s report will be considered, or on 3/31/2021, whichever comes first.
