Officer Reports

President - Alan Dipert

We've come a long way in a short time. Look at decreasing dues as soon as possible. Really excited about how far we've come. Everyone here is awesome and our members are awesome. We need a vision for how we organize the space. People have a lot of great ideas, but we need documentation. Everyone should document their needs and wants on the wiki. JC uploaded the schematic for the space last week, and its on the wiki. Let's strategize using the tools we have (the wiki) and get our ideas flowing. Put stuff on the wiki, and then let the list know about your changes. Use the wiki to talk about the types of things we want to accumulate. Take ownership of ideas.

Vice President - Justis Peters

Proposes a second survey of member input via survey. We'll be doing something tonight with the network closet.

Treasurer - Lisa Lorenzin

Member Reports

Ed - Address when things are going to be thrown away and why. (Put your name on it)

Triwebwomen & programmer meetup - in both cases trash can had food in it. Whoever last leaves event should empty trash or put it outside for pick up.

Still has key to book exchange, offered to make Ed a key, unknown time limit. There are bookcase that we could make shelving throughout the room. Nothing would be on the floor, hang a curtain over bookcase to hide stuff.

Organization strategy -- we need one.

If you don't want things thrown away, put your name on it.

Lisa proposes an organizational committee to express interest and relay ideas to the group

Jeff --- member report --

Jeff has done screenprinting before -- we can make a vinyl screen and do our own screenprinting on tshirts that we bring from home.

What to do:

  1. Organize a date for screenprinting - put together a vinyl cut for Jeff to do at Tech Shop
  2. Organize a committee for organization.
