These invoices are based on the data in members.csv which in turn was added based on the invoices we sent last year. If member co-ops get back to us and say their details have changed or they're not able to contribute this year, we can update the CSV and re-generate the invoices. I've decided to commit the generated HTML rather than the PDF, as the latter changes when I re-run the script even if the data hasn't changed. If we need to update any data, this should make the diffs more obvious, but of course it'll make it harder for anyone to just grab the PDFs from the repo without installing the toolchain. For now, it's me doing it so we can cross that bridge at a later date.

The CoTech Fund
What is the CoTech Fund?
Following a successful pilot year we have decided to make the CoTech fund permanent. The fund is a voluntary system where members of CoTech can contribute £1 per member, per week. The subscription is collected annually in advance. The fund can be used for any purpose that supports CoTech including, but not limited to:
- Marketing and promotion
- Paying for infrastructure costs (such as the community forum)
Those co-ops who have joined the fund decide collectively how the fund should be distributed. We try to achieve this by consent, but where necessary can use a "one co-op, one vote" rule.
How do I join the fund?
Send an email to
email@example.com and tell us how many members are in your co-op. We will then invoice you for the appropriate amount.
How do I propose spending to the fund?
According to the process outlined in 2019:
- A thread will be created on CoTech Loomio to propose a spending item and the rationale behind it - an example.
- Co-ops contributing to the fund will have a week to inspect the notion and block it if they disagree. If there are no objections, the spending is approved.
Where can I find out more about the fund?
There is a fund category on the community forum where we post fund updates and discuss how to use the fund. Everyone can read these updates, and members of the co-ops in the fund can post.
