Wardens Meeting Agenda

  1. Ground rules for the meeting
    • DO NOT GET BOGGED DOWN IN DETAILS.
      1. This is the first of what hopefully will be monthly meetings.
      2. We don’t need to get everything figured out tonight.
      3. This doesn’t need to take more than 90 minutes (hopefully).
    • Take notes on details for your area.
      1. I can’t run the meeting and take notes.
      2. Ryan can’t either.
      3. Hopefully soon, we’ll have a decent sound system in the lounge and can record/transcribe later.
      4. Send them to me and I’ll aggregate them into “minutes”.
    • As we have more meetings, we’ll figure out how to better organize them.
      1. I’ll try to get an agenda up on the wiki early and get an outline.
      2. Suggestions to streamline the meeting welcome, just shoot me an e-mail.
    • Stick to the topic at hand.
      1. Probably what you want to cover is farther down on the agenda.
      2. If I’m a little abrupt at steering us back on track, apologies in advance.
  2. State of Each Ward
    1. This item will be likely to greatly change in the next few meetings.
    2. What isn’t working? What is being fixed? What could use improvement?
    3. CNC Machining
    4. Electronics
    5. Fab Lab
    6. Kitchen
    7. Lounge
    8. Metalworking
    9. Woodworking
  3. Update the Wiki
    • Maintenance
      • What needs to be done every month during clean-up
      • What needs to be done less frequently
      • What consumables do we stock
    • Certified users and trainers
      • This is the canonical source for now.
      • We need to make sure uncertified people aren’t using the equipment.
      • Sooner or later, intweb will have a list of certified members and trainers, and we want that list to be correct.
    • Equipment location and status
    • Wishlist Wrangling
      • It’s a dumping ground of “anything that could possibly be used by the Hive.”
      • Mark top candidates for purchase.
      • Strike out anything that will likely never be purchased
      • Cull anything we have already purchased.
  4. Ideas for Improvement
    • Start labelling where things go
  5. Host More Events
    • Movie Nights/Game Nights
      • These provide a social atmosphere to build community
      • Our new lounge will greatly aid this.
      • Consider hosting with and without potlucks and cleanup.
    • Training Classes and Warden Hours
      1. These are provided to learn, get answers to questions and get certified on machines.
      2. If there is a certification-required tool in your ward, make sure you’re at least familiar with it.
      3. These will allow the wardens to keep the shop clean and in good working order.
      4. We can attract new members through advertising these classes.
      5. We should provide a project to get people certified and demonstrate our capabilities.
