We need a decision by end of day Wednesday so that the website can be
updated Thursday, and so that I can print business cards on Thursday, in
advance of the workshops on Friday and Saturday.
I am happy to report that Cascadia Wikimedians User Group now has a mailing
address and a registered agent.
Please use this address for all mail, unless there is legal service of
*Cascadia Wikimedians User Group*
*555 116th Ave NE, #242*
*Bellevue, WA 98004*
Notes and reminders:
* Our phone number is 206-659-7420
* We can use our allotment of two in-office days per month at the Seattle
and Bellevue Impact HUB locations.
* The Bellevue location is offering a temporary 40% discount for our dues
while they are doing upgrades to their physical layout. It appears that
they will be doing upgrades for at least a few more months. The savings
will be passed on to WMDC for the first two months in the form of lower
expenditures for the rent that they agreed to fund via the startup grant.
* I am currently listed as the subscriber for Impact HUB. We can have
guests and meetings but people will need to be with me for the subscription
rate to apply, otherwise we may be charged a per-use fee. If you need to
have an event at Impact HUB when I am not present then please let me know
ahead of time so that I can ask Impact HUB to accommodate the request.
* Our subscription rate applies only for use during daytime business hours.
* Impact HUB provides some member benefits and discounts. The one that
looks most interesting to me is a program that connects nonprofits and
social enterprises with free legal services by attorneys who join this
network: http://www.trust.org/trustlaw/. Considering that the law firm that
I contacted about our interest in having our 501(c)(3) application reviewed
has been largely unresponsive in the last week, I am thinking that TrustLaw
may be the way to go. We might also ask them to review our bylaws to ensure
that there are no compliance issues between our bylaws and Washington State
laws for nonprofits. I will look into this in more detail when we get
closer to assembling a 501(c)(3) application.

I plan to set up our government registrations this week, and once that is

My colleague from Wiki Education Foundation, LiAnna Davis, is going to
be in Seattle on Wednesday evening. (We're doing a research and
planning sprint for a our technical projects.) Would anyone be
interested in hanging out with me and LiAnna, talking about Wikimedia
education stuff and Cascadia stuff, and (optionally) having some
It would probably be somewhere in Fremont, maybe around 6pm.
This would be a nice chance to get a clearer shared understanding of
how education projects will figure into Wikimedia Cascadia's program

# Possible meetup with LiAnna from WikiEd tomorrow.
# Monthly social at Cafe Allegro on Tuesday. No formal agenda.
