The votes are in!
A total of 87 members voted in the online survey regarding our proposal for store expansion at an additional $2,500 per month.
72% of votes were in favor of the proposed expansion. However, in order for the vote to pass, the affirmative votes need to be 80% of members voting (see bylaws III §6).
As a result, the electronic vote did not pass, which means that, at this point, we are not authorized to rent the adjoining space at $2,500 per month. We will follow up and continue the conversation at the next Board and Committees meetings.
A big thank you to everyone who voted and participated in this initiative!
We are also pleased to invite all members to an upcoming open forum at which we’ll debrief following the vote and explore some key considerations of the store expansion discussion. The forum will take place this Wednesday evening, 9-10PM, at 33 Bushwick Avenue, #3.
