CA3 Full Membership Application (John Dubelko )

Problem: Ms Caryn Cozzolino would like to move up to full member.  She writes " I've always been creative. Kind of a jack of all trades and master of none. I am heavily drawn to metal work but with little to no experience. I took oxy/acetylene one Summer and LOVED it. I bought a very nice Mig welder for my Jeep project but have failed to make nice welds. So I am interested in proper use of a Mig welder and in the process learn even more about welding. I have an an X-Carve CNC with a 3.8K JTech laser. I am learning to use software so that is a huge learning curve for me, but the more you practice the easier it will become. The time is right because I will be retiring here within the next month or so and I will be jobless and kidless during the day. I am a team player and enjoy giving and receiving direction and knowledge. I am also excited to meet like minded people who mostly drive their spouses crazy with their need to be creative. So let's roll!

Solution:  Upgrade her

Relevance to our tax exempt status:

Motion: Approve Ms Caryn Cozzolino for full membership.
