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 - Ceramics program Committee (Jen Netsch)

Problem: The ceramics area is slowly becoming operational, but needs leadership and organization for it to become functional and to offer beginners classes this summer. Jen and Don Netsch have agreed to to form an initial Ceramics Leads group (and also act as kiln stewards) and have an initial proposal for start-up of ceramics operations.

Solution: Form a Ceramics Committee 

Relevance to our tax exempt status: we believe none

Proposed Motion: I motion that the Ceramics Committee be created and Jen Netsch be designated as Chairperson.  The Committee will initially consist of Jen Netsch, Don Netsch, Brian Boston, Christa Stern, Erin Werling and Barbara Bartholic.

CA2 - Ceramics program start up (Jen Netsch)

Problem: The ceramics area is slowly becoming operational, but needs leadership and organization for it to become functional and to offer beginners classes this summer. Jen and Don Netsch have agreed to to form an initial Ceramics Leads group (and also act as kiln stewards) and have an initial proposal for start-up of ceramics operations.

Solution: Proposal to form Ceramics program leads group, who will initially staff and maintain the ceramics area for the benefit of all - including members and non-members. Operations to include beginners ceramics classes to be offered this summer, with open ceramics workshop sessions to be offered for members once enough people have taken the beginners classes and show interest.  Once we have successfully held a few basic/beginners classes, the program will have generated some profits to fund additional supplies and more advanced classes.  The goal will be to offer several classes per month and weekly open ceramics workshops in the future, that will grow over time.  The ceramics space will be limited to usage while under supervision by a lead/steward, to avoid misuse of kilns. More information is available in our proposal document uploaded.

Relevance to our tax exempt status: we believe none

Proposed Motion: I motion to spend $200 on the ceramics program start up supplies.

Problem: Makers want to make! 

Solution: Jared Clarkson and Bradley Rodgers are applying for Full Membership in Makersmiths Innovation Forge makerspace.
