A guided imagery was conducted by Madeleine.

Ashley presented a brief history of the roundtable formation and made introductions. It was reported that there are 123 members and a newly elected Board.

The finances are as follows:

Budgeted Income      $1,125

Actual Income            $495 – all from memberships

Actual Expenses        $82 – bank fees and overhead due ALA

Balance                       $413

The roundtable has been encouraged to fundraise and increase members. A budget for the next fiscal year is needed by July 31, 2014. Matthew moved and Carrie seconded. Approved.

The draft bylaws were presented and reviewed by Eileen. On a motion by Matthew and seconded by Rebekkah they were approved.

Two exercises were conducted; one was to determine what success of the roundtable looks like. The second was to determine who would take on leading the projects to achieve that success.

Two representatives from SRRT, Mike Marlin and Al Kagan visited with the group and asked us to help them with resolutions for ALA Council regarding petroleum divestment. Matthew spoke and asked for some time as SustainRT is just starting.

Meeting adjourned at 2:30 pm.
