In July we had 24 members in good standing. ie. Paying members... There were a couple of folks for just two months, so now we have 21 members (IGS) as of Sept. In our checking account we currently have $484.11, and in paypal $245.28. Also we just remembered Bob for $204.61 for tooling, this will show up on the Oct statement.

Discuss ongoing space search

Long long talk... We are doing good on finding good spaces that we can almost afford. We talked a long time about how to raise more money and if we should raise dues or not.

Start planning for annual board meeting

First we should consider moving the meeting date father away from Christmas. Then we should announce to the lists that it's coming up, asking for new board member nominations, and possible agenda items.

Action Items:



  • Add a new paypal tier, and post to a list to sign up! :-)


  • Continue working on the new space search.
  • Work with Realtor to negotiate rent down for our top three choices.
