CA2 Request for Temporary Storage for Two Different Week Long Art Camps (Jessee Maloney)

Problem: Memebers are not allowed to store projects or supplies for an extended amount of time. I would like to offer two art based summer camps over the summer to bring in a new crowd of families. One is a dollhouse camp in July and the second one is a paper mache camp in August. Both require 8-10 large projects to be stored for 4 days each (monday afternoon thru thursday night). 

Solution: Give me temporary permission to store these items in either the classroom, or another suitable room during the week of each camp.

Relevance to our tax exempt status: none

Motion: Give Jessee temporary permission to store student projects during the week of each class, and no longer.

CA1 Discontinuing Meetup Subscription (John Dubelko)

Problem: Meetup is one of three electronic scheduling platforms that Makersmiths uses to post events and classes. The scheduling committee has been struggling to keep all three synced. Eliminating  one of the platforms would significantly save the committee time and effort. Meetup is the committee's choice to be dropped since is does not have several of the features like discount pricing that the organization is using with the other platforms.  A vote at the Dec membership meeting was favorable in dropping our subscription and supporting only two platforms for scheduling.  Those remaining platforms would be and Facebook. 

Solution: Discontinuing Meetup would reduce the committees work load and would save $15 a month in fees.

Relevance to our tax exempt status: none

Motion:  Discontinue the Makersmiths Meetup subscription.
