Weekly Meeting Agenda


Our Annual Leadership Ballot is now live! Please check your email for a message from the Hive CTO. It is a quick thing to do, and we need at LEAST 50% of membership to participate for it to be a valid election. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE VOTE!!!!

Please take some time this evening to help keep the Hive awesome for everyone! Some simple tasks -

  • check parking tags on vertical storage and project storage
  • empty/load/run dishwasher
  • empty each big trashcan
  • empty recycling
  • throw away food/purge fridges
  • 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 broken@hive13.org 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!

Dungeon Masters

  • We have a document we're working on to help Membership buy in to Hive Development, discussion to follow
    • This is a basic list of points to consider when pitching a new bay/shop in Hive13:
      • Am I an expert, or do I have considerable knowledge in this area or discipline?
      • Do I know if there are any members who are also interested in or have experience in this field? If so, roughly how many?
      • Am I confident/competent in specifying the spatial, electrical, safety, etc. needs to plan this space usage for not just build but also maintenance? If I don’t, do I know members who do, and are willing to collaborate?
      • Does the Hive already have assets for this? Are they currently available for use?
      • Would this discipline be able to share space with other activities?
      • Is it: noisy, stinky, hot, dusty? Does it require quiet concentration?
      • What skills do members need to participate in this activity? Examples: Math, CAD, or other Training.
