Treasurer & Budget
Been a wild month for Treasurer. Sent out emails to 176 members who are showing a balance while also having an active plan. So far, about 40 have been fixed, either by paying back dues or correcting their departure dates. Still plenty left to correct, but I should be done before the election emails are sent.
The Solicitation License was (just today) finalized. MEDC/Patronicity have been notified, but not yet responded.
The updated 2017 and 2018 taxes were mailed. 2019 is still in process, and is due in November. It should be done well before that.
Current "worst case" is still around 13 months.
|Allocated to Zones/SIGs/etc.||($25,116.76)|

Harassment Policy Update
We came up with a list of factors to consider in the last disciplinary meeting. We should officially adopt them and use them for all serious disciplinary issues going forward. We should document them on the wiki in a way that lets us tweak them going forward as we find ways to incrementally improve them. Here's the list:
- Start with credibility of allegations
- Lack of consent
- Effect on public safety or perception- (does it change member behavior as a reaction)
- Conscious intent
- Violent vs non-violent behavior
- The World Health Organization's definition of violence (from https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Violence&oldid=970420588): "the intentional use of physical force or power, threatened or actual, against oneself, another person, or against a group or community, which either results in or has a high likelihood of resulting in injury, death, psychological harm, maldevelopment, or deprivation."
- How likely it is to happen again
- Severity of action
- How difficult it is to prevent
- How far in the past it was
- How far removed from the i3 community (physical and/or cultural)
- Pattern of behavior
- Time completed: 2114
- Funds appropriated:
- Attendees: 13
