|2014-02-10||Greg||Ask if notes are okay?||The moderator of the weekly meeting should ask if people think that the prior weeks meeting notes are accurate and sufficient.

|2014-1-9||Dana||Consensus process change|| 1. Consensus items at weekly meetings can be stopped from advancing by three member stand-asides or one block. Those objecting are encouraged to meet with proposal author(s) to develop mutually agreeable alternatives.
2. Membership meetings shall be scheduled and announced in advance. If a proposal cannot reach consensus or resolution at weekly meetings it may be added to a membership meeting agenda with sponsorship of three members. To take effect a proposal would require approval of 75% of members present physically or by proxy.
3. All current associate members shall be converted to full members, and the associate membership role abolished.

|2013-12-10||Kevin||Tabled until details are elaborated Expiration period for associate member policy||Noisebridge should attach an expiration period of 90 days to the consensus decision to create new Member role. All subsequent mutations of the original consensus should be brought for a second consensus. If no consensus can be reached, Noisebridge will revert to being open to the public.||Kevin|
