Andy looked into some virtual events but will hold off until those are needed. Robert Allen would like to find other hosts to spread out across the city, Fulton County libraries are still saying “no” to evening events, could try DeKalb libraries, but they may charge. Christian notes that we’ll need to start taking fundraising seriously if we want to be able to afford public venues, many places charge by the hour.
