AGM Decisions + New Hours

Hi Reusers,

After a productive AGM, the following decisions were made:

  • New Hours are 10:30am-2:30pm. Closed on August 4.
    • This decision was voted unanimously in favour. 
    • These new hours were based on aligning with Farmers' Market Hours (9am-1pm) when traffic is already in the downtown core, in addition to, aligning with the lunch hour on Saturdays for those that work (and those travelling downtown to eat) and Central Library programming, which typically run between 10:30am-3:00pm on Saturdays.
  • We need more volunteers willing to work our new Saturday hours.
    • Articulate Ink is closing down their shop and moving back to Pop-up Shop Hours, which is why our shop will be closed on Saturday, August 4. This means we no longer have consistent staffing for the shop and need to train new volunteers ASAP. Erika will work in the shop for the month of August until such time when enough volunteers are available to share shifts on Saturdays.
  • Membership will be changing from free to up to $60/year (pending member consultations).
    • You no longer have to be a member to shop at the RASE Shop.
    • Due to our partnership with Articulate Ink changing, we are also in need of a new way to bring in income throughout the year. It was decided to look into what members would want as benefits from a RASE Membership system. All those who are considered currently as members will be added to an e-mail list and the new membership will launch in January 2019.
    • Complete our Membership Survey to let us know what you want out of a new Membership System.
  • POS (Point of Sale) system that will accept credit cards will be implemented no later than January 2019.
    • Decision to spend up to $200 on new system was unanimously in favour.
    • Erika will look into a POS system that is most cost effective.
  • Punch Card changes when new POS system is implemented.
    • The punch card system was created to make cash transactions easy, however, with a new POS system that can take credit cards, this will make purchases easier.
Thanks for your interest in the RASE and I hope you can complete our survey to help us serve you better! The survey should take between 5-10 minutes and is anonymous.
