    • Ian B needs to be reimbursed for digital ocean stuff. Maybe we should figure out how to do that?

  • Hive expansion
    • Waiting to hear back from the landlord if the lease is OK.
  • Jim's items
    • figure out a "known good process" for the CNC router and laser to more easily certify people.
    • Make a "demo part" for machines to step through learning many machines.
    • yoda need: encourage people to ask for help from experts.
    • capstone projects: let people offer bounties for projects.
    • Do we want to do opening day again?
    • Power tool drag racing: Do we want to go big and go to the big three this year?
    • Power series? Aint gonna happen, maybe let's just use it for other stuff like opening day?
  • Tool purchases for the year?
    • We spent probably $5-6k last year, that might not be unreasonable for this year.
    • We could maintain the same, but the surplus is a bit smaller. We need to approach the number of members who are "members" and not paying their membership.
  • Warden budgets aren't really being used
    • One reason is a bit of burnout
    • Another is that no one is really suggesting tools/stuff we need.
  • Daniel's concern about authority on the leadership
    • Everyone at the meeting agrees that the same rules that apply to the physical space apply to the mailing list. The steps taken on the mailing list were justified.
    • We should clearly define in the bylaws that this is so, since the mailing list /is/ listed in the bylaws.
    • Ryan or Jim will respond to Daniel personally.
