New Business

  • Power Hammer Vote-- approved. KB needs to do the paperwork.
  • Welding reimbursement timeline. The delay was auditing the check date.
  • Wild Apricot - for scheduling;
      • lets' talk about checking authorization boxes. Either makes duplicate requests. What about giving WA access? Does it give ability to wipe out databases? Volunteer authorizer's hands are tied. Ron "wrote a program to do just that." Yea, Ron. He can do something where you type in name, and it saves it into WA. This is quite awesome. Currently a little out of whack when added new equipment. Ron will return to the project.
    • separate projects- functionality for seeing auth events in calendar view vs/and/or authorization tracking
      • OK, so here are the options for auth automation, even including quizzes
      • 4 ways
      • event on google calendar
      • event on meetup (problematic) /(calendar connects to our calendar)
      • WA - has calendar, also public -- connects to app that tracks checkins-- *** 3 tiers, member discount
      • Canvas- canvas event --
      • Dream is widget - pings WA or AD -- do you have this auth... can tie into actual machine.
      • So to look at this overarching issue from a project management perspective, what can we do in parallel. Can we make life easier for authorizers while we work on a web calendar that shows ALLLLLLL (every single one) of the authorizations scheduled for October.
  • Spitball - like a block party where 10 people have to endorse. We can talk about a future meeting. With new voting system, what are the dynamics or quorum and things passing. What will future trends show us? Can we do financial "load balancing" between the 9 areas. What if one area had 90% of the member vote budget.
  • Dust collection - waiting on electrical
  • incident needs us to write a DRC report.
  • Pet Policy - needs further discussion
  • Jim B has a bill that needs to be paid, pls email it to expenses@... Needs to get card replaced.
      • Kathryn wants award for most avand garde use of bullet points.
  • Reminder - something about authorizers for next week- topic unknown
