CoTech Fund - Switch to 'Loomio community lifetime' plan
Last year we paid $125 to Loomio as they introduced payment plans (we qualified for 'Community Annual'). The price was meant to vary every year depending on the number of users. We currently have 139 community users and were sent an invoice totalling $145.88, which is due.
However, in the meantime Loomio simplified its billing plans and offered 'Loomio community lifetime' option, a one-time $199 payment (plus sales tax where applicable) offering community groups (such as CoTech) the following:
-Unlimited discussions and decisions
-Integrate Slack and Microsoft Teams
In this thread we want to propose to switch to this plan and get reimbursed for paying for it.

Thanks for the support!
Our switch was successful. The payment was received by Loomio on 30 Apr 2021 9:30 PM NZST. Animorph will reclaim $199.00 from CoTech shortly.
Now we can use Loomio forever!
Since last year we need to pay for using Loomio.
CoTech membership is growing and we need to pay $150+ on annual basis. As described in the thread introduction, the one-off payment plan would provide us with a lifetime subscription for unlimited amount of members.
Animorph will make the payment and will get reimbursed by CoTech Fund.
This vote is only for the co-ops contributing to the fund. Please take a week to inspect the notion. If there are no objections, the spending will be approved.

It would be nicer to use only use Discourse however it would probably cost more to develop a Discourse plugin to replace the Loomio voting options we use / need.
