Membership Engagement

Storage Proposal

* Proposal by Tim: all new members must attend Space Improvement Day before being allocated storage space * Encourage new members to interact with current members and the BOD * Helps ensure large groups of volunteers * Adequate persuasion/reward for volunteerism * Will be done on the honor system. * If current members want storage space, they must have participated in an SID within the last 2 to 3 months. * Vote to change rule to reflect the above proposal * Tim C will alert the membership of the proposed change * No action taken, BOD vote slated to occur at December meeting, to be implemented in new year

  • No progress, COVID kinda slowed us all down

Event Proposal

  • Date of Trivia Night
    • 1Q proposed

Membership Signup Materials

* Tim 7/8ths through script for new member video * Upon completion will do rough recording for commentary/feedback * Will break up information between the 2 tours and signup video (goal: have video be ~10 minutes long)

  • Tim burnt out, may or may not have bandwidth to update in the future
