New Leader Orientation

  • Intweb
  • Member Tours & Signup Process
  • Member storage space assignment
  • Leadership Communications etiquette
    • ALWAYS thread responses in slack #announcments channel, it's the one channel members can't choose to leave, and only leaders can post in.
      • There are a very few but genuine exceptions. COO will explain.
    • Keep ALL conversation not directly related to a confidential topic out of #leadership_private, if not security/privacy sensitive, all discussion should be in #leadership_discussion.
    • CC on official business emails so others know what is being taken care of and what still needs responses.
    • Where possible use a handle/login that clearly identifies who you are. Your name not you position.
  • Get an email if you don't have one.
  • Add your contact details to the Leadership Contacts to the extent that you are comfortable.
  • Conflict of Interest Statements. Please sign and return.

Finance Issues

  • Warden budget now needs to be determined and voted on.
  • Warden discount status.
    • No longer in bylaws.
    • Are we still doing it? Should we?
  • Need for IT/CTO budget.
  • Member votes.
    • Are we changing to the same system that we use for annual elections?

Discourse for Leadership and Warden emails

  • Discourse seems ill-equipped for handling leadership and warden email
    • HTML messages get broken
    • Reply and CC features break threading of responses
    • Reply formatting is broken, replaces email context with discourse links and styling, does not present cohesive response experience outside our organization
  • Can it be made better? Can/should we switch leadership and wardens emails back to google groups till we figure it out?


  • AC was never actually designed to handle our space and functions.
    • We got the largest units that would work with our furnaces.
  • Barely keeping up on hot days.
    • Humidity and the heat of the building itself big parts of the problem.
  • Maintenance? Set up annual checkup with AC fund drive reserves?
  • Possible window coverings for the front windows.

Reporting Problems

  • Messes left behind
    • How do we encourage improvement? Preferably continuous improvement.
  • Safety problems
  • Unattended guests
