Special GA to Discuss Housing/HQ

Committee: 

Secretariat

When: 

Saturday, December 17, 2011 - 7:00pm

Location: 

The Board of Trade (Jackson & LaSalle)

Occupy Chicago will soon have an indoor home.  It sits on the horizon with new opportunities and challenges for our movement.  Without a doubt, this new beginning is on all of our minds.  The celebration that started the week has given way to conversations shaped by both fresh ideas and fresh concerns. This Saturday, December 17th, is the time to bring these ideas and concerns to the table and discuss them as a movement at the 7:00PM General Assembly.

All committees are encouraged to meet over the course of this week in preparation for this discussion.  Preparatory consideration should include, but not be limited to, the following:

1. What effects, including new opportunities and new challenges, can the movement expect to arise from moving indoors?

2. What can your committee do to address these effects?

3. What other committees may be helpful to your committee in addressing these effects?

4. How will this effect the current HQ at Jackson and LaSalle?

The goal of this meeting is for the committees and individuals of Occupy Chicago to determine and take-on the tasks we need accomplish before we move in to our new home.
