postheadericon April Meeting Summary / Calendar


Sunday’s meeting was a blast! We had lots of attendees, some regulars, some new.

We discussed the following:

- The Lansing chapter is planning on hosting a state wide Zeitgeist event called: “Zeitgeist under the Sun”. They plan on having members from all of the state chapters attend along with fun and entertainment. Tentatively they planned on this being late May, although, it could be pushed to June due to conflicts in May. Regardless, stay tuned, it should play out to be a great time that you don’t want to miss!

- Movie nights, we have committed to having Z movie nights at least twice a month on the first and third Wednesday at the Phoenix Café. Each movie will of course be Z related or current event related; doors open at 7, movie starts at 7:30. This week’s selection is “China Syndrome”, (A reporter finds what appears to be a cover-up of safety hazards at a nuclear power plant.) Yes it’s not totally Z related, and yes it is fictional, but we thought it would create some good discussion, and many of us have not seen it yet. Movie nights are free to attend but there is a suggested donation of a few dollars to support The Movement and the Phoenix Café.

- Action! The time is perfect to start getting our hands dirty. That being said, we discussed many initiative ideas that we will narrow down to a select few. All of these revolve around community oriented, self-sustainability-oriented projects. We can’t wait to get started and we need your help!

- Z-Day past and future.

- BOINC - http://www.thezeitgeistmovement.com/wiki/index.php?title=BOINC

- Lots and lots of other fruitful topics.

There is a lot going on in the foreseeable future, so to make it easy every update will have a calendar listing the next few events.
