New Business

  • Electrical stuffs
    • From Tom: Let's start with a 100' of 1/2" emt ( thin wall pipe) 10 to 15 1900 boxes, one box each of 1/2" connectors and couplings, at least one 500' reel of #12 wire in colors of white,black,red, not sure what supports to use yet. I spoke to some friends and they feel you will get flagged for the cord in the ceiling on 2nd flr, we will think of something.

Old Business

  • Orientation Program
    • Eric proposes that we establish an orientation program as the PS1 Orientation class, which must be attended within 3 months of joining. Members who have been members more than 3 months as of July 30th 2013 are grandfathered in and are not required to take the class. Those who are newer than 90 days old as members on July 30th 2013 are required to attend a PS1 Orientation class within the next 3 months, while those who join on July 31st or later have 3 months from the date they join.
    • Additionally, Eric suggests that all board members attempt to attend a PS1 Orientation class within 3 months as well, so as to be familiar with what is included and to ensure that they believe the orientation program contains the correct information.
