What's the difference between a program and a committee?

  • Area leads: responsible for specific square footage of the makerspace

New Business

Proposal of new standing rule

Current bylaws: No material property of the corporation may be given to, loaned or placed in the possession of a third party without the expressed permission of the Board of Directors.

Is a re-word necessary? Material property of the corporation may be disposed of or placed in the possession of a third party according to the specifications set forth by the standing rules

Standing rule proposal:

Property Removal

Items donated or purchased by the corporation may not be disposed of or placed in possession of a third party without the signatures of three different people:

  1. The applicable area lead
  2. The makerspace program director
  3. A member of the MakeICT board of directors

Another member of the MakeICT board of directors can sign in place of the makerspace program director.

No signatures are required to dispose of or transfer items that were accepted as hackables.

Other New Business

    • We've never been able to use the current system as it is
    • No policies for who can view footage
    • Camera committee to be lead by ___
  • Items tagged for removal - how's the craigslisting going?
  • Lake Afton Public Observatory
    • They can use our badge printer, paying back for individual supplies ($1 per badge?) but nothing extra covering the cost of the machine
    • Exchange: Quarterly member nights for MakeICT members
    • James L was originally tasks with writing up this proposal, these bullets are Kim's stab at it, James feel free to re-write.
  • Spirit partnership
    • Kim wrote up a long email. No response yet. Mike H/Rustin were tasked to follow up - sign printing would be nice
