Old Business/Action Item Review

COVID-19 status review - Open Hack closure status

CDC has issued a notice for Lane County recommending masks indoors. It is not a mandate, but a science-based recommendation. There have been no confrontations reported at the shop under our current policy requesting people wear masks when possible and respect the right of others to wear masks without criticism. We will continue to recommend mask usage.

Ben will contact the membership to see if anyone is interested in cleaning up and configuring the 3d printer for checkout

In work.

Ben will request an update from Bee about the blinds

Karen will report back with details about SaniPac communications

Karen contacted them to request a bid on weekly service and we found it would be cost prohibitive.

Karen will make a call for volunteers to host Open Hacks

Done.

Election

The election process continues. The call for nominations for board members has closed and a message has been sent out to all members in good standing. We also received 7 proposals for discussion and threads have been created on the Discord. November 26th is when votes will be sent out and the election will complete on December 3rd at 8:00PM.

There were 5 nominations, one was declined.

December Board Meeting

For the last few years, we've been doing the December board meeting a week later than usual to fulfill requirements of the governing document without holding a second meeting. Karen suggests that we consider formalizing this for future elections.

We will do that this year as well.

Review upcoming events

No upcoming open hacks and the next event for the group is the vote beginning on November 26th.

Adjournment

Motion: Ben moved that the Eugene Makerspace Board of Directors adjourn.

The motion was seconded by Beata.

Motion passes, the vote was unanimous.
