Events Coordinator - create position APPROVED

Status

APPROVED 3/3/10 - 14 members present (real, IRC, proxy) Votes: For:9 Against:1

Purpose

A new position should be created for a Events Coordinator.

Text

A new position should be created for a Events Coordinator. This person will not plan events on his/her lonesome, but will instead have periodic planning meetings to delegate individual events to responsible members, and possibly Far. He/she will establish a best-practices for holding events, ensure the quality of events being held, and make sure that anyone who wants to run an event has all the necessary knowledge and resources they need. The Event Coordinator is NOT in charge of the email sign-in-sheet but he/she probably will end up doing it anyway.

Speaker's fee for "Top Secret Rosies" lecture APPROVED

Status

APPROVED 3/3/10 - 14 members present (real, IRC, proxy) Votes: For:14 Abstain: 0

Purpose

To decide whether to pay a $100 speaker's fee to LeAnn Erickson, a documentary filmmaker who is finishing a film called Top Secret Rosies, about the women who programmed ENIAC.

Text

In June, the filmmaker is available to do a lecture and possibly screen a teaser from the film, which is currently in post-production and should be nearing its première at that time. In lieu of an outright speaker's fee, she requests that donations be made toward the film through her fiscal sponsor, the Philadelphia Film Office. Suggested donation for .edu and small orgs like Hive is about $100, and much higher for conferences or corporate engagements. Proposal is that Hive plan to pay $100. There is an expectation that the event may pay for itself either through a door donation or passing the hat.

New Plastic for MakerBot APPROVED

Status

APPROVED 3/3/10 - 14 members present (real, IRC, proxy) Votes: For:12 Abstain: 0

Purpose

We have a MakerBot 3D-PO. It eats plastic. We need to feed it. PLA is $80 from MakerBot. We have a loose agreement to buy more plastic but I thought I'd throw it up as a proposal because that's what an officer told me to do.

Text

We need new plastic for MakerBot. PLA is ideal because the fumes are not carcinogenic (like ABS is). Let's get $80 of PLA now!!! Ask Jordan with any questions.

New T-Shirt Design (aka logo/branding)

Purpose

To figure out how we want to approach logos/branding/swag/whatever we want to do.

Text

There is a preliminary write-up for a New T-Shirt Logo. If we want to do something bigger, that will be a new proposal.

To make sure the work of running Wednesday Night Open Houses is spread around. To do this, we will have 2 members randomly selected to work together 'host' the Open House for a month at a time. (This is a Recommendation of the Board of Hive76)

Text

we will make a list of wed's nights, and Member can sign up to host week by week, during that week, the host will take care of:

  1. The space is open, or it's closure (due to storm/fire/zombie-invasion) is well posted
  2. Someone talked to people wandering in, and gives them a nice little intro
  3. If people come early during the meeting part, they are not loud and are said hello to.
  4. That food (pending food budget passes) will be ordered each Weds, to arrive around 8PM.
