Open discussion

Stack - Tommy
Notes - Annette

A new improved InfoBooth comes closer to reality. Tommy B - costs and design limitations to building our own. Whistler - spoke of many commercially available options. Discussion all around.
Proposal passed - Purchase a lighter, easier, durable canopy ( and maybe 2 chairs) for $200 or less, preferably from a local small business.
Annette and Gary will go shopping. The Zen Center has offered storage. A supporter named Dave, from Vets for Peace has offered to transport if needed.

General Assembly Minutes 2012-05-22

This evening at GA, we (theoretically) solved--among other problems--UF's budget crisis, sustainable energy, the enigma of happiness, the crisis of modern analytic philosophy in America, and how to keep pesky deans out of your office. (You totally should have been there.) Tomorrow morning, there will be a whole new batch waiting for us. (You probably won't be able to do anything but be there.)
