Here’s the latest on what’s happening at East Bay Intergroup:
Notes from the October monthly Intergroup meeting held on October 20.
Lease settlement agreement found in EBI’s favor
After months of negotiation, there has been a settlement between EBI and the former landlord, regarding the Washington St. space vacated in 2020 (breaking the lease).
The judge in the case found that East Bay Intergroup was liable to pay the landlord $37,000. EBI’s previous offer had been $35,000. The former landlord’s last claim was for $123,872, so the judgement was in our favor.
EBI paid our attorney a fee of $9,000 (which was actually 40% less than the $15,000 fee charged by the former landlord’s attorney).
In-Person Meeting Directories
Belle, EBI Office Administrator, announced that 347 in-person meeting directories had been sold as of the October meeting. The directories are available now at 50 cents each at the EBI Bookstore. Directories will be updated every two months.
New Office Assistant hired
Belle also announced that a new office assistant, Lindsey, has been hired. Responsibilities include staffing the bookstore and various other duties.
