Ottawa Car Sharing!

Ottawa Car Sharing!	s1222082@aix2.uottawa.ca

We're looking for people interested in setting things up.
We're starting to compile a list of people who want to join once things
are set up.
And we need a car! If anyone knows of someone interested in donating
one, let us know! (A donated car would mean quicker start-up and cheaper
rates versus buying/leasing.)

Sunday Nov 14th
13:00 hrs
85 Florence, Apt. 2

1) Welcome newcomers, and determine initial list of people interested in
   participating in the "working groups", who will ultimately form Board
   of Directors for Ottawa Car-Sharing Co-op.
2) Present draft of "articles of incorporation", and get any suggestions
   for revisions (I'll email these out before the meeting to interested
3) Present initial budget (I'll email this out before meeting).
4) Determine status of "car-acquisition" working group.
