Weekly Meeting Agenda


Hive13 member Paul Vincent has graciously resigned his position as a Director.

  • Hive13's bylaws state that a nomination period for a new Director shall begin now and remain open for one week (until 11:59 PM, May 9th).
  • On May 10th an email will be sent out to all members with a link you may use to vote. Voting will remain open until the Special Meeting of Members (coinciding with our regular Tuesday meeting) at 7:30 PM, May 23rd.

Directors help Hive13 to thrive as a community of makers. As a director you will be provided with plenty of support and guidance. This volunteer position does ask for attendance at monthly Board meetings (the second Monday of each month, from 7:30 to 9pm) and participation in Hive13 decision making.

Starting this week, we will be doing some general Keep-the-Hive-Awesome stuff after every meeting! We'd love it if we could get some volunteers to help, because many hands make light work:

  • check parking tags on vertical storage and project storage
  • empty/load/run dishwasher
  • empty each big trashcan
  • empty recycling
  • throw away food/purge fridges



  • We have a open "Cornerstone Corner" Member storage space available! Please contact John Clark if you would be interested in upgrading your storage.
  • Membership, please remember that when you bring a guest into the Hive, you are the one responsible for them for the duration of your time in the Hive. They are required to completely fill out a liability waiver, and we expect you to honor the Membership Agreement that you signed that states that you, the Member, will remain with your guest, your guest is not permitted to use any certification-only equipment, and that they will leave the Hive when you leave.
    • Because making is better together, Hive13 welcomes your well-behaved children and guests.
      • Members must assure all guests to Hive13, including minor children have a signed Liability Waiver.
      • Members will take care to assure the safety and good behavior of guests.
      • Only Members may operate tools requiring certification. Some tools are off limits to anyone under 18
      • Members must accompany guests at all times. When you leave your guests leave.
  • The purge is coming! Please do not put anything in the Dungeon, and if you currently have items stored in the Dungeon - PLEASE REMOVE
  • This is a shared space, managed by volunteers. Please clean up after yourselves and if you are unsure how to do something, please ask! There have been far, far too many tools damaged lately, and this can be avoided by speaking up.
  • If something breaks, please email and notify the associated warden on Slack!
  • Leadership has recently updated our Commercial Use Policy Please look it over and feel free to reach out to Leadership with any questions.

Welcome Guests!
