Consent Agenda

Newly proposed agenda items appear in the consent agenda. Any member present at the meeting may pull an item out of the consent agenda for discussion, at which point it goes under "New Business". If nobody objects to the solutions presented by the consent agenda, everything in the consent agenda passes by consensus. Items that have more than one proposed solution should be moved to the "New Business" section.

Any member may edit this wiki page and place an item on the agenda. However, discussion of agenda items should be done via Slack. The cut-off time for addition to or revision of the consent agenda items is 48 hours prior to the meeting. Please note, agenda items (Consent, New, or Old) that request spending $250 or more must include a section on "Relevance to our tax exempt purpose".

CA1 Committee Name Change (John)

Problem: The Training/events committee would like to change their name to the Scheduling committee.  This name better reflects the nature of the committee and avoids confusion with a future training committee.

Solution: Change the committee name to the Scheduling Committee

Relevance to our tax exempt status: None

Motion: Change the name of the Training/events committee to the Scheduling Committee

Old Business:

OB1 Copier (John D)

Problem:  The space’s current color copier/printer is not very reliable and is being maintained with member labor and donations. The space will need to fund the replacement of parts and tone very soon. Copier maintenance is not really a “maker” endeavor and is taking resources away from Makersmiths core mission.

Solution:  The attached analysis would suggest that a less risky approach to having a laser color copier would be to setup a maintenance contract with a company that will donate a new color copier to the space. All labor, parts and toner would be provided as part of the maintenance agreement. The space would only be responsible for paper.  2018-05-26 Copier BCA.pptx
