Financial Report[edit]

Treasurer's Finance update:

  • we resolved the rent situation (december rent check got lost).
  • we regained control of the PG&E account (yay!)
  • great end of year donations! … we need this every month XD
  • we’re looking for Julio, who is the owner of the meetup account, so event organizers can create tickets for their events. we instituted a minimum fee for sewing for instance, and this would help making sure a) folks show up and b) handling payments
  • please everyone, look into whether you work for a company matching donations! And if so, pay your membership dues through this!
  • we’re trying to set up paypal giving but i’ve had no luck getting hold of customer service
  • really need to look into savings accounts - @dana had done the groundwork on this

Cash Flow 9500/month rent ~2000/month equipment 6200/month flowing

- Using savings from large donations

- Pay for classes, contribute to events and lead events - Wikipedia edit meetups

How's it all going

Big C Consensus Items[edit]

Nobody likes 3 hour meetings, only explain if people ask. https://www.noisebridge.net/wiki/Current_Consensus_Items

Consensus Items [edit]

Only for talking about Big C consensus items, small c consensus items should be discussed with people at the space at the time of the change/new item.

Discussion[edit]

Discussion Item 1[edit]

newcomers - what are you up to? hoping for tonight?

  • meet people
  • more responsibility


Discord Chrisby:

  • defcon meetup?
  • 5mof next week!


Discussion Item 2[edit]

Do-ocratic Task Board[edit]

Participation also means doing stuff to contribute to the space. Propose new tasks or pick some tasks from Github, from what needs to be done around you, or whatever, and see if someone will sign up to work on that task. Anyone can sign up and it's a great way to show you are contributing!
