Officer’s Report:
@orion began by noting our Slack channel has gotten busier!

Coordination has begun to participate in Women’s March and Trump inauguration protest (check #meatspace_calendar).
@jxxmora5 : No VP report. Interested in putting more work into Southern California events and meetups. @jxxmora5 also volunteered for pushing papers and assisting with other teams. Send him messages if you need help with your project!
@bbridge: In process of transferring power from old treasury position to @laura . Met with bank, obtained copy of invoice for all transactions since 2012. Another meeting is scheduled for 1/30/17, more information to come. We should be able to begin donation drives! Very interested in party identifiers for public meetings. Pins! Shirts! Swag! Yarrr! Let’s tap website redesign for graphics.
@laura : We have $203.50! We have a draft of Statement of Activities! Check #treasure_chest. Taxes and forms will be filed (with many 0’s). Many thanks @laura! Check out #polls and vote on graphics to post to social media.

Team Report:
Website Redevelopment: @laura , @digitalirony , @d3rpz1lla , and @zarathustra are crushing it at website redevelopment. We’re using the WordPress Theme (consistent with other PP’s) and have begun with rolling out updates. @zarathustra and @jxxmora5 made contacts with the folks at Their going rate is $1500, they donated their services to CAPP because “we think you guys are cool.” Check #calpirateparty_org for more info.
Pirate Radio: The email team has been in contact with a software developer that offered to assist with Pirate Radio, a long time dream of CAPP. More on this to come.
Technology: Some quick discussion on moving away from Google Hangouts. Let’s find a different video chat service! Needs to support multiple people, chat, live stream, and record to YouTube.

We’re banking with San Francisco Federal Credit Union. Again, @bbridge will meet with the bank on Friday, Jan 20th, to iron out details. We will need to be exploring a service to solicit donations, see Treasurer’s and Secretary’s report.
Meetups: @aaron.burr.sir and @orion noted that in person meetings are very important. We should have a public presence. Putting a face to our organization is important in this stage of the game. #meatspace_calendar has meetings in your location.
