b. Template: sent out soon
c. Goal for committee: list of potential locations for Market and necessary details for evaluation.
II. Discussion: Pros and Cons of seeking professional real estate advice
a. Danny discusses some aspects of NNN lease: perhaps it is reasonable to hire someone or find a friend of the co-op with expertise to advise committee and board.
b. Pam suggests that there are new members who have expressed interest in joining location committee; as of yet, no one with specific expertise has arisen.
c. Jen has acquaintance with real estate experience; will inquire.
d. Michael cautions everyone to be careful when discussing this option, and not make any commitments.

a. Next meeting: 12/4 at Pam’s house. Committee members will have research done and Wiki updated by that time.
