We Have Adopted By-Laws!

The NY State Department of State has issued us our certificate of incorporation for the Not-For-Profit Corporation that houses our cooperative. The Founding Board decided, after discussing with our lawyers at the Fordham’s Community Economic Development Clinic, to go ahead and adopt the initial set of Bylaws to ensure that we are bound by rules that we’ve designed for ourselves (we would otherwise have to be bound by default rules contained in New York State laws). However, as we will explain at the January 28 meeting, from now on you the membership are in charge of the rules of the cooperative, and any amendment to them must be approved by members at a properly called meeting. Full Report HERE.

Committee Updates!

Steering Committee
Now that we have moved into a brave new year, we are shifting gears and starting to focus on building the limited liability company (LLC) that will invest in projects for us (we are currently in talks with some potential existing project collaborations), and a framework to guide how we approach the communities and the proponents of future projects!

REIC University
Please keep an eye out for an upcoming screening event!

CORB: Community Outreach & Relationship Building
The former PBIG: Public Buildings Inventory Group seeks new members with great community organizing skills. We are looking for those who can help us build our community engagement model and educate the membership in best practices in how to reach out to communities and work together with them, in a horizontal, democratic, grassroots way.

Arts & Media
We are working with Roy Rub and Seth Labenz of Topos Graphics (thank you so much! for doing this pro bono for the REIC!) on phase two of a new graphic identity for the REIC.
