* '''Invite a knowledgeable volunteer to describe''' [[membership]], and the application process.
No new members this week!

<blockquote>Being a member of Noisebridge is not like being a member of a gym or your local chess club. Anyone can come to Noisebridge to hack and learn: you don't need to be a member for that. At Noisebridge, membership is something different: it means taking responsibility and committing to help to maintain, improve, and govern Noisebridge. As a member of Noisebridge, you don't just come here to hack and learn, you actively work to improve what you see around you, help to deal with problems, and make this community better than it is today.</blockquote>
 +
<blockquote>If you want to show your commitment to Noisebridge and the community here without becoming a capital-M-Member, consider being a Noisebridge associate. Associates pay their dues to the treasurer just like members, use the space just like members, and are valued participants in the community just like members. The difference is that associate membership doesn't involve consensus: there's no need to go through consensus to become an associate, but associates don't get to block consensus either.</blockquote>
 +
* Read off any names from the binder for the past month. Write a check on every open application.
 +

** answer any questions members may have for them, then
 +
** leave the area in search of gifts (traditionally beer and a lime, or cookies) for the rest of the group.
 +
* The rest of the meeting should reach consensus on whether they may join.
 +
* Remember to applaud new members when they return.
