Audrey looking at volunteer tracking tools for the Syndicate.

Talked about installing CiviCRM on top of our Wordpress install. Might be possible, might be a bad idea. Need to keep working on this.


We need to plan to pay 50% deposit on space on April 1st ($3455)

Ok, we want to pay this to reserve the space, even though we are low on funds right now.
