Attending: Drew, Celeste, Bandit, Darren, Adric, Rebecca, JT
The Board’s response to the SC proposal was discussed - adding all area captains to the group, three voting members
Point to discuss: Area Captains control their area, and need to be involved with & have final say with regards to their area
The Area Captain of the Arcade has spoken that the love seat in the Arcade should come out.
Adric’s point of the meeting: Main agenda item: Establish whether we can follow the Board’s response from April 29, 2016 Three voting members Area Captains as members What else? Can those area captains not interested in being active on the Space Cadets be allowed to ‘opt out’ in some fashion? That would help with the voting requirements
Q. - Are the Area Captains & the Facilities Manager on the SC mailing list? Adric will check the configuration of the list.
Adric trimmed the Space Cadets Mailing list to only those that responded to his inquiry about staying a member of the Space Cadets; those people are the current subscribers

These people responded to Adric’s request of who wanted to be involved Charel Aaron Adric Celeste Ben Cole Drew JT Darren Rebecca Eternity (ET) Sherie Gonner
Some discussion took place on the ByLaws on how consensus works & the quorum requirement works
“Opt Out’- can it be permanent or one time? How to handle for voting requirements? Adric proposal - Area captains being allowed a permanent opt out of voting for Space Cadets. And must opt in via email to the list prior to call to vote, for reasons for quorum.
Can we meet the requirements for quorum?
All Area Captains are Officers, but not all Officers are not Area Captains

Bandit has volunteered
It was suggested that the President be allowed a vote on the committee & was passed unanimously
Was there any concern about two family members on the group? There was no dissent on the matter.
