Hybrid Meeting Etiquette

  • Be excellent.
  • Attendance and voting can be found in the #meetings slack channel.
  • Please show up early if you are concerned about your audio.
  • If there is no one waiting to speak feel free to do so at the next opportunity.
  • If there is someone waiting to speak, please say that you are raising your hand in the google call chat. (This will be demonstrated)
  • Please refrain from other side conversations, these can be distracting for the rest of the meeting and make it difficult for the chair to keep track of what's going on.
  • If you're in the space remember that having a single person speaking at a time is helpful for those attending online.

Upcoming Events

  • DS: Meeting Minutes are now being transcribed. The transcripts will be published along-side meeting minutes.
  • LY: Two weekends ago we had a guest who expressed that it was promoted to him that it is "Open Shop Night' on Friday night during tours. Multiple members had to get involved to help this guest, and the guest even made members uncomfortable. Are members advertising to the public that i3 has 'open shop night'? Is anyone aware of this and responsible for hosting it? I think this needs to be a larger group decision. Is it the general consensus that we are willing to welcome the public to use the equipment? If so, who is the host?
  • Friendly reminder that if you host a guest; you need to make sure the guest leaves with you or is signed in by another member before you leave.

  • only board or officer can throw out stuff when tickets have been there a week
  • when ticketing something, email the announce list *and* the member if you can figure it out
  • you cannot cosign your own permit
