Since the Board has been elected we’ve been meeting a lot IRL and putting our heads together to figure out the next steps of the Students for Free Culture organization. Here are the links to the minutes from our recent meetings:
We’ll be updating this page on the wiki: Meetings with future links to minutes so keep an eye out there if you’re interested in following SFC’s board meetings in excruciating detail.
But if you’re not interested in digging through the minutes here are a couple of things we’ll be working on over the next couple of months:
- New T-Shirts are on their way.The wonderful Patrick Moberg of BustedTees has graciously agreed to create some new art for shirts that we’ll be printing soon. He’s done a great job and the designs are almost done, so we’ll be releasing more info about that soon. We should have the t-shirts printed and ready by the end of the summer.
- The Fall 2008 Students for Free Culture Conference. Mark your calendars for October 10th-13th 2008 as we’ve scheduled Columbus Day weekend for our next big conference. We’ve chosen Berkeley, CA as the location for the summit and we’ll be raising funds to make sure we get the right people there to learn, help, and grow the organization and their chapters.
- Incorporation. Thats right, you heard it here first. SFC will soon be an official non-profit entity. This will allow us to file for 501c3 status and solicit tax free donations. Creative Commons‘ original counsel Diane Cabell has been an enormous help through this process and we should be done with it soon.
As always, please feel free to contact anyone on the board, or leave a comment here if you’d like to give feedback about our ideas.
Thanks & Good luck with finals!
