This page is a to-do list for Board Members:

  • Address hole in membership rules for visitors who are minors. Suggest letting them attend classes, but preventing using anything more dangerous than a computer keyboard without parental permission.
  • Add procedure to membership rules for letting space out to third parties. This should focus on places that are in line with our educational mission. We don't want it to become unrelated business income.
  • Put together a new member orientation packet so people will have a handy reference to culture and doing things. We can include simple things like member storage, tool orientation, etc. What's ok to use, what's not, who to ask if you have questions. That sort of thing.


  • Review current membership
    • check for active/inactive status
    • check for appropriate logins/access for all new members
  • Update membership mailing lists, etc

Communications Director

  • We need to come up with some good copy to distribute to people when we want to start talking about funds. About us, what we do, etc.
  • Set up digital accounts
  • Setup formal "Newsletter"
    • Add folks that have asked to be kept informed but don't want to wade through the Google Group postings
      • Linda Nyholm (
  • Webpage Updates
    • We probably need to get some sort of event registration thing integrated into drupal. Best case scenario, it even makes calendar events for us, but that's probably wishful thinking
    • We need to work on the editor to make putting pretty content easier for others.
    • Look into setting up something where we put plans and schematics to spread the knowledge.
  • LDAP introduction / brainstorm w/ Pete
  • add skp files to valid uploads
  • ticketing system for tech requests
  • David Snider - speaking at tech council
