Business

Currently using SalesForce to track membership. Will be rolling out additional functionality as time passes. The CTO will need to build an app like extension for other members of the leadership to utilize it.

4th Order of Business:

Vote:

Regular members in good standing may extent their membership to a household member for an additional $10 a month or $120 a year.

4 out of 4 present members voted in favor.

5th Order of Business:

The leadership discussed The Labs future. The lease will expire in a year and half. The leadership will need to start looking into possible areas to move into or look into renewing our lease. Members discussed their desire to promote cooperation between different makerspaces and raising awareness about what we do.

6th Order of Business:

The Lab would like to revisit the idea of hosting a mini-maker fair. Research would need to be done on putting the word out there and getting participants. The time investment is the biggest challenge.

7th Order of Business:

Vote:

The leadership will have a training coarse on wood shop safety with members being required to go through the coarse to use the shop. To kick off having training while the class is being created we will have safety instructions available with each machine and have signs up.
