Proposal Date

Date this proposal was posted to the membership and a request for a vote date was sent to the Board.


Vote Announcement and Beginning Date of the Discussion Period

The announcement date of the vote proposal is the beginning date of the seven-day (minimum) posting and Member discussion period. (Certain exceptional vote types have longer discussion periods. Check the Bylaws if you are unsure.) If the Sponsor has chosen to include member input, suggested edits can be made in a shared document or other collaborative vehicle until the language is locked. The sponsor can stop taking suggestions at any time.


Language Lock Date and Start of Voting

Five days prior to the Day of the Vote, the vote language is locked, all edits are frozen, and the language of the vote is converted to a pdf file. Ballots that include the pdf are sent to the Membership, and electronic voting begins. Note that the minimum discussion period of seven days leaves only two days for changes before the lock takes place.


Day of the Vote

Date the Board has assigned for the vote. The Day of the Vote is the day the vote closes.



Our Lease expires May 31st, but renewal is not automatic. We have the option to renew, but in order to do so, we must send the landlord, by registered mail, a written "notice of election to renew", at least 90 days prior to the end of the lease. This is around March 1st.


From PS1 Bylaws Art 6 sect 7 Contractual Authorization: "Novel agreements which include a clause placing significant risk on the Organization such as fines for breach of contract or claims to property as recourse, for example, must first be authorized by a vote of the Members."

Language of the Vote

This vote authorizes the Board and the President to commit PS1 to another 5 years in our current location, and to communicate our intention to the landlord.
