Consensus Agenda


HANDOVER OF HM TREASURER ROLE (See discussion on the HM Slack #members channel.)

For a decision by the members:

Peter S. Shenkin is hereby given permission to access information from any of Hack Manhattan's financial records, effective immediately, until this permission is revoked by the board (anticipated to be when a new treasurer is elected and has been trained, in Spring 2021). Peter does not have permission under this resolution to make any financial transactions.


New Business


In an effort to plan for a move from the current physical venue: Opearation Nascent Hikkoshi This is a pre-requisite for HM to either move to a new physical venue or be moved into storage. As things start ramping up next month with the end of the holidays, I'd like to budget an initial $400 for storage supplies.

As of this moment, the possibilities for HM can be broken down into 4 options:

  • Move to a new location
  • Place property in storage and make further decisions later.
  • Dissolve HackManhattan (This will require a surprisingly amount of work to properly close a non-profit including but not limited to inventory disposal, account closures, and deciding where the remaining budget goes)
  • stay where we are for now and decide later
