Voting

For major space decisions, Core Members + Basic Members vote. A plan is passed by 3/4 majority. Core Members can block if they absolutely can't live with the outcome. A 'block' can be overridden if everyone else (except that one core member) votes to override it. Lite members are encouraged to be part of decision making, and can participate in discussion. Their votes are recorded and announced, but don't count towards the 3/4 majority.

Joining

As a Lite member

Just Ask! Or better, have a Core or Basic member sponsor you. A notice will be sent out on the mailing list along with an introduction by you. Unless there is an objection, you will be a member as of the next Monthly meeting. If there is an objection, there will be an offical vote and decision at the next monthly meeting.

Meetings

Hive runs based on a simplified SCRUM system. Every Wednesday is a10-15 min 'scrum' meeting which is a quick update on the past week, and quick plan for the next week. Members are encouraged to come or call in to hear what is going on, share their news, and catch up. Every 4-5 weeks is a 'Monthly meeting' where we wrap up the month and vote on topics that need a vote. This is also where we discuss new Members and Memberships, and plan in more detail. All members are

  • strongly* encouraged to come, or at least call in for discussion and

votes. Once a year we have a 'Board Meeting' (which will be required once we're a nonprofit), followed by a BBQ or Party. The 'Board Meeting' will probably take all day, and will be planning for bigger things to come. This is where we BS, dream big, and remember how awesome the past year was.
