New Business

General Operations Applications -- they are going to meet in November and talk about procedures and getting things in order for next year. No one applied to be the lead, so we can circle back. Wanted to appoint the lead today to help choose other roles. Storage Manager for woodshop means Area Host support. Maybe at least one more Storage Manager. New systems for consumables.

MMT= Call for volunteers continues. Volunteers can contribute as little as one hour of their time.

Figuring out Industrial CNC leadership. Shopbot open spots.

Composting area? A member who has a composting company. Would we be able to do the right thing with it? Like, no meat.

How much money is left in the kitchen budget?

Kathryn B proposed reviewing the restructuring doc. Some discussion. Kathryn's concern is that the timing of the Board Nominee deadline (Oct 29, 8 PM) is the "exact same moment" as the vote results are announced. This issue was resolved during the member meeting and it was offered that the Annual Meeting could be moved. However, at the Member Meeting, a time shift of one hour was agreed to. This would give nominees 1 hour to change the position they are running for.

Molly requested that the Board write about their board roles on Google Doc

Area Host appreciation event

Let’s schedule an offsite - Need documentation for new board members, documentation folders in order, board orientation

NOTE: Immediately after the conclusion of the Member Meeting and Open House, a leadership event was held, along with a discussion of the restructuring. A diagram on slack (and posted on the wiki in the future) illustrates the shift among officers and directors. That is the same night as the election event. Broad attendance is encouraged.
