We’re changing our Member Storage Policy. Currently you are able to lease space to store your items at the space for $10 a month. The pricing isn’t changing. Currently “Open slots are free to use by any member but are communal and not private” This is changing to: Open slots will no longer be used as communal storage. Anything in a section that is not currently being leased will be moved to the Lost and Found rack, or the Catacombs.
This Friday 1/20 we’ll be cleaning out the open slots (with items going to the Lost and Found Rack or Catacombs). If you have anything in this communal storage area please make plans to collect them from the space this Friday or at your earliest convenience.
We’re implementing a Lost and Found system. Lost and Found will also serve as a place that members can move a project that is unlabeled to a safe storage place so the owner can reclaim their project.
Remember that we have dedicated member storage and you are expected to utilize this instead of a random nook or cranny in the space to store you projects. If you do need to leave a project or belongings at the space you are expected to leave a note with at least your name on it. If you do not do this you may find your project in the Lost and Found rack.
If you come into the space and you have to move things to free up a working space, move the things to the Lost and Found rack.
If you come into the space and can’t find something you left, check the Lost and Found rack!
Every 2 weeks (or less) the Lost and Found rack will be completely wiped clean. Everything on it will go into the garbage or salvaged for parts. Please make sure you are checking the Lost and Found rack each time you visit the space in case you have misplaced or forgotten to label a project.
Don’t leave your stuff at the space without a note on it. Lose something? Check the Lost and Found rack.
Got some junk in your trunk you’re looking to unload? Think MidsouthMakers may have a good use for it? Check out our newly revamped guidelines for Donating Items to the space!
At the December 2016 board meeting, the 2017 Board Member Election results were ratified:
President – Claudio Donndelinger
Treasurer – Cliff Gurlen
Secretary – Chamberlin
Social Media Director – Ernest McCracken
After ratification of the results, Ernest McCracken informed the board he needed to step down from his position. We thank him for his service to the group.
This left two vacancies in the board. Per the bylaws the following members were nominated and voted in to fill the vacancies:
Vice President – Joe Ferguson
Social Media Director – Todd Wright
Congratulations to our 2017 Board!
As most of you know, Dan Hess, one of our founders, a past president and, until recently, treasurer of the group, has accepted a job in (and is moving to) Portland, Oregon. As such, he is stepping down from his role as Treasurer. Shortly after this was announced, Joe Ferguson, another founder and board member, announced that he would be stepping down from his position of Secretary in order to better focus his attention on driving and developing the tech community throughout Memphis.
In order to replace these two Board members for the duration of the current Board term (until the next election is held in December 2014), the remaining Board members elected Brett Henley and Jonathan Wood to take on the roles of Treasurer and Secretary, respectively, and hope they do not completely screw up the organization over the next 6 months.
