1. Welcome – Introductions

2. Activist Reports
Francoise: Has done something to promote liberty but can’t remember what!

Alex: Being outspoken on Facebook. Memes win elections.

Annie: Wants to share more but afraid it will drive her friends away, and worried it could damage the reputation of her dance company.

Nick: Went to some talk on “Depolarizing Politics”, and am now county coordinator for the Coalition to Stop Top Two in SF. Check stoptop2.com for more info! I will be actively recruiting people to collect signatures and doing it myself. Also got a ticket for Ben Shapiro’s talk at Berkeley on Thursday-- he’s a conservative, but good on a lot of liberty issues.

Les: Wrote a few letters to the editor, but hasn’t had any published recently.

Phil: Stopped all his activism. Read a book about American imperialism overseas.

Aubrey: Went down to Santa Clara for their pride parade and marched with them. Afterwards, Aubrey volunteered at their booth for a while and got into some very good discussions.

5. Website Report
Domain name is coming up for renewal soon (Oct 9 I think) -- just $15/year
Hosting would be a couple of weeks after that, but I’m looking at other options Working on redesigning the website from scratch

6. Treasurer’s Report
Bank of America: 2040.21
Paypal: $1241.89
SFCU: $2490
Total: $5772.10

Starchild proposes we push to get people to attend the Board of Supervisors meetings on Tuesdays at 2:00pm. In order to get people to go, he suggests we allocate some money to pay them. Alternatively, setting up a meetup with some social time afterwards would be a good way to get people to come.

7. Insurance for Events
For future events, we can use the State party’s insurance. Purchasing our own insurance is unnecessary as long as it is the LPSF’s name. Good to know!

8. Change to Credit Union
Once we are sure that everything is set up, we will close out the BoA account.

9. Gun Show Tabling November 18-19 & Other Events
We will have our own table along with the Golden Gate Liberty Revolution table.
