Guest Policy

Ted stated current guest policy:

If one member is present in the space, they may have one guest. If two or more members are present, any number of guests may be present. Each guest must have a waiver on file and sign in each time they use the space. All guests must have a member host them while they are present in the space. The host's name must be noted on the sign-in sheet.

Nate moved to allow one member to host up to 3 guests. Phil stated he was okay with this. Motion tabled until regular member meeting on 10/13.

Discussed privacy issues with waivers. Nate recommended that the secretary keep original waivers, and place a list of names and emergency contacts in the binder instead. Motion tabled until regular meeting on 10/13.

Permanent Modification Policy

Russ stated that several members have disapproved of large changes made to the space without their consent. Methods for balancing member consensus with ease of implementing changes were discussed at length.

In a 7 to 1 vote, it was resolved that before any member makes an infrastructure or building modification, they must notify other members no less than 12 hours in advance through the member email list.

Parts vending policy

It was decided by a unanimous vote that members may sell parts within the space.

Phil offered to maintain an electronics parts store.


Upon a motion duly made and seconded, the meeting was adjourned at 2:50 PM.
