Interim Management Team meets in Toronto

The acting CrisisCommons management team gathered in Toronto last week to start building a roadmap for the future of the organization. Facilitated by Robin White of the Meridian Institute and attended by nine CrisisCommons volunteers, the discussion ranged from mission statements, governance, potential partnerships, and incorporation. In attendance were Andrew Turner, Deborah Shaddon, Chad Catacchio, Jacob Greer, Pascal Schuback, Chris “Spike” Foote, Brian Chick, David Black and Patrice Cloutier.

Hosted by David Black and the University of Toronto, representatives came from all over the U.S. and even Europe for the two-day event. Workgroup leads presented their reports, along with goals and plans on how each committee should move forward. After some discussion, plans were finalized and committments were made.

Perhaps the most important part of the discussion was the current status of the incorporation process. CrisisCommons has been an ad-hock network of volunteers for nearly three years now, and it became obvious that a legal entity of some sort must be created. Pascal Schuback took the lead on that and has been dealing with a lawyer provided by the Woodrow Wilson Center to help us through the process of becoming a non-profit corporation.  Soon, when the paperwork is complete, some members present at this meeting will become the first board of directors for the incorporated CrisisCommons.

More details will follow, but please don’t hesitate to contact anybody who attended for more details.

    Hotel guests are currently paying for overnight parking or
    if you’re attending a function, but if you dine in their restaurant parking is validated.

    With the present lease policy, plots and flats are subleased by the NDA to the end
    users. Those who have money to spare right now should know that
    real estate investing is the best place to make money.
    Also, the landlord may have promised the tenant a 60 month term but the lease could provide a fixed expiration date for a
    term of less than 60 months. For more information visit our site Real Estates Investing.
    This is a meeting where deals are made, needed information is found, problems are
    solved and real estate investing is always the central topic.
    Investing in and holding onto commercial real estate provides you a significant tax shelter through the depreciation of the
    building and improvements. Your premises happens to be
    appraised on a standard basis baseded upon suggestions from tenants and the needed
    class corrections suggested to increase the attraction and value of the property.
    Those looking for a modern home are more into buildings
    and would like a home that more of artistic statement compared to a traditional home.
    The waiting game should really start after you have gone out there and found several different homes that are $30 million.

    The President just said he’s dialing O for O’Malley. For
    holes, you cover the area with the wallboard tape and then spackle to make the tape stick.

    Most of the email questions I sent to online battery shops netted me
    sales pitch calls and emails.

  3. At this point, your dream of a magnificent,
    green lawn under virtually any weather condition without the need
    of all the essential maintenance with real grass will not be only
    a vision; you can absolutely enable it to become a reality.
    This smooths out and fills the artificial grass surface giving it a
    soft, comforting base. The first step in the synthetic grass installation process involves removing all existing grass
    and weeds from the area.
