    • NOMCON. Are we sending someone to the Nation of Makers Conference this year? I think the topic has been discussed, but at this point only informally. I would prefer that we were presenting at the conference rather than just attending, but it may be too late for this year. Also, it often takes one initial attendance to get the lay of the land. There are some tracks that seem interesting and relevant to us ( I think it's too early to make a specific proposal on attendance, but I'd suggest a five-minute discussion followed by vote on whether I should go put a formal budget and proposal together.
      • Adam will put together budget and proposal
      • People are interested
    • Wild Apricot switchover/communication plan. Want to get a sense of the timing here and also flesh out the communication plan. Nothing complicated, but basically want to figure out what blog posts I need to write and which newsletter(s) to include them in. I think we can work this out in five minutes.
      • Updates from Sky
      • Adam will add initial announcement to next newsletter
    • Newsletter status update
      • High open and click rate
