= Instructions =
 
 
 
Congratulations and/or condolences! You're reading this because you're participating in a meeting of Noisebridge!
 
 
 
You should read this instructional section thoroughly, and treat them as a guideline for how to host a meeting of Noisebridge. There are three ingredients to an [[Excellent]] meeting: A number of note takers, some facilitators, and participants.
 
 
 
Meetings are just one of the tools used at Noisebridge to create net forward progress on whatever it is we're all trying to do. Meetings aren't the only way to make decisions or have discussions, and in fact its usually a much better idea to talk about things outside the meeting before dragging the entire community kicking and screaming into it.
 
 
 
== Note Takers ==
 
# Confirm last meeting was saved
 
# Take new notes
 
# Save and share the notes at the end of the meeting (instructions at the bottom).
 
 
 
== Facilitators ==
 
 
 
There are generally two kinds of facilitator roles at a Noisebridge meeting:
 
 
 
* Stack taker - Useful when a lot of folks want to hop on the discussion stack. This gives everyone a turn to have their feelings heard. Usually only works when there is exactly one stack taker.
 
* Moderators - Keeps the meeting moving and prevents everyone from wasting too much time on one subject. Anyone is free to pick up moderation and move the meeting along.
 
 
 
In general, moderators should:
 
* Understand the structure of Noisebridge [[consensus|decision-making]]
 
* Make sure everyone gets a chance to speak.
 
* Speak only minimally yourself.
 
* Keep the meeting moving, and avoid getting bogged down.
 
* Identify discussion items, arrange times limits for talking about each item.
 
* Identify and summarize consensus, suggest things that need to be done.
 
* '''Get the [[membership binder]] and ensure that it is returned safely.'''
 
 
 
== Participants ==
 
 
 
Everyone at a Noisebridge meeting who has consented to participating in one is a participant!
 
 
 
* Say your name before you talk.
 
* Remain on-topic, and speak as concisely as possible.
 
* Assist the note-taker with any links or corrections that are needed.
 
* Remain respectful of other participants, their time, and the consensus and moderation process.

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 and space better than it is today.</blockquote>
