Introduction and Names[edit]


  • Calling the cops and Noisebridge participants.
 - Noisebridge has no official policies. However, we do enjoy drama.
   - Summary: *take other people's perception of excellence into account before we call the cops.*
     - But you totally can if you want. But don't be a dick. But I mean, you know, it's... if you're really sure it's necessary
       - If someone's setting something on fire
         - Depends on what?
   - Don't be a dick.

Financial Report[edit]

Funds in bank: ~$6000

There is no active treasurer. We don't really know who's a paid-up member, whether members are being reminded, etc. Someone should step up and do this.

Membership Binder[edit]

  • Clean up binder pages, remove pages of any approved members into the records binder.
  • Read off any names from the binder for the past month. (edit this step to include current checkmark system)
  • Anyone up for join this week should introduce themselves then leave while the present group comes to a Consensus about their membership.
