Attendees: Ravi, Alex, Arthur, Christine, Adam
Ravi reads off agenda items from google group thread
– Name change can be postponed til more people
– Focus on Budget issues for this meeting, one hour (115-215)
– Ravi begins by laying out the issues:
* expenditures from past GA proposal that were not consistent with what was consistent with what was consensed and posted on nycga.net
* questions about New York Youth Alternatives Inc.- receipts marked with their name, relationship not clear, not listed with IRS as a non-profit
* GA is discussing hiring an external accounting firm to make sure our finances are in order.
* The issues that have arisen with this behaviour have exposed the group and the movement to a great deal of risk.
Ravi therefore proposes that Alex be removed as financial point person
Alex declares that he is leaving the group. He declares that Christine and “Carey Haywood” will be served with papers for slander. He declares that OWS will not be able to use the Harlem space.
