      • Last week this was discussed so late that no clear plan was agreed upon before adjourning for the night. Simply "confirm by sunday" on Saturday I sent out an email to the board requesting further instruction and recieved nothing back. I think we should keep that in mind before ruling on whether or not we cut out the people that were not confirmed last meeting.

6 - VPN

Any states that would like to provide VPN service to their members:

  • Rates would be $10 p/mo $35 p/6mo $60 p/yr
  • Your state would make $5 $15 $30 respectively (not per signup, but per mo/6/yr)
  • This is the same system being adopted by PPI for member countries, so it's pretty awesome. It's a great way for your state to make money to be used for advertising and party funds. Here is the order page to get a feel for it. (ignore the current prices, they are just place holders)
