== Contacting the Board ==
  
The board holds meetings, the notes of which are [http://wiki.pumpingstationone.org/Category:Board_Meetings here]. This page is currently inaccurate since it's a mix of information about the previous (2011, 2012) boards and the current (2013) board. We're working on that, honestly.
+
Members can contact the board in person at the twice monthly Tuesday meeting (Currently first and third Tuesday of the month - check the calendar for up to date information). You can send email to info {at} pumpingstationone.org to open a ticket in the FreshDesk system for the Board to handle. That system is not for private information. For private information, email board {at} pumpingstationone.org, email a specific member of the board, or talk to us at the meeting.
