Meeting Time: 7pm
- Add your topics and put your name next to them please!
End of agenda
Still not clear what our liability policy is. We are waiting for a copy from the insurance company.
We need more signage. Put signs in areas where they apply (such as the storage rules on the pallet racks)
We are not installing the light lenses.
Temporary project area allocated to the east room.
Guest liability form reform. Kevin will make hilariously giant binder to keep them in. Guests to keep a copy of our policies?
Metal shop equipment is somewhat enumerated. Numbers will reference a lease document that identifies the owner of all tools. This is so we can know who owns what.
Brant wants to put up a Closed Circuit TV system (as we had at Chase.) Proposed space pay for a system <$400. Topic tabled for next meeting. Somewhat controversial.
Discussion on policy regarding children: Currently, no one under 10yrs allowed in Makerspace. We are modifying the policy so that it only applies to dangerous areas such as the west room (metal and wood shop). Ed H wants to do Cub Scouts, also Chad L does Big Brother. Can do it but please stay in carpeted areas. May need to change by-laws, which is somewhat complicated. No policy determined at this time. Topic is tabled.
Still one more round of cleaning/ organizing needed before Art Jamboree.
East Room needs to be cleared out by the end of next week. They are building an elevated room sort of thing, with a clear polycarbonate floor(…?)
Giving a booth to American Science and Surplus if they want it.
Expect a stage 2 DJ's and a band, a giant spirograph, cash bar, other artists and performers, and hundreds of milwaukeeans.
Might take a week to fully remove all event materials.
We will reserve a vacant vault for personal storage of valuable member stuff for the event.
Feel free to wear your makerspace shirt. If you don't have a shirt, complain, maybe we'll get some more made! Maybe set up the screen printer during the event. Sell them? Other MMS swag for sale?
We will need volunteers to help out.
Gift Memberships: Existing members only. Need to meet people before we grant membership
Vetting Process: Discussing a possible one month probationary period before granting official membership. Not really an attractive option
Jason proposes moving to monthly meetings. Majority opinion is to keep it bi-monthly for now. Try again next meeting.
