Board Meeting Summary

The WCCC board met on Thursday, April 17 at Kannah Creek Brewery. Jesse Zacher, Matt Seymour, Thad Harlow, Eric Ming, and Eve Tallman attended. Due to technicalities, Matt Lisenby was unable to Skype to the meeting. The main topic of discussion was fundraising and brainstorming about future revenue sources for the purpose of purchasing Mothers Buttress.
A motion was made by Thad and seconded by Matt Seymour to approve the bylaws as written. The motion passed unanimously.
Discussion ensued about local contractors and construction tradesmen who have offered in-kind work or reduced rates as a trade for part of the purchase agreement for the land deal. Ryan Cowan and Brad Winters were mentioned. Jesse will attempt to facilitate a meeting with John Peterson, the land owner.
Eve reported that she applied for a grant with a local foundation that has previously funded land acquisition projects in Mesa County. Discussion ensued about a grant opportunity with REI, and Eve will follow up with the grant coordinator at the Access Fund to discuss possibilities.
Work will continue on the 501(c)(3) paperwork required for the tax-exempt nonprofit status of the WCCC.
