  • Announcements/new business:
  • Operations:
    • Wish list migration - Sarah B.
      • Using MyRegistry.com
      • We can add items directly from the browser with a chrome browser extension
      • You can mark list items as "private" to keep them on the list but hidden, i.e. we have them in stock but expect to run out periodically
      • Still have a few items from the old wishlist that need more info to go on MyRegistry, e.g. washers (what size?)
  • Membership:
    • Gained one or two new members, have several in the works (a good number of volunteers). We are around 30-40 members now, including volunteers (which are harder to track since they don't pay monthly)
    • Application form has been updated with the changes discussed last month
    • Membership tracking spreadsheet hasn't made much progress
    • Benevity has been set up so companies can do donation matching
  • Outreach:
    • Social media posts for events - Sarah B.
      • One quick takeaway from the message Sarah posted in #operations, we should use some tools to unify social media posts/accounts to make it easier to do.
    • Grant opportunity spreadsheet has been made.
    • Nate has been getting Xander started with the Creative Washtenaw grant
  • Education:
    • Mesh network class idea is in the works (Nate Y./Mike Z.). September timeline.
    • Joe D. would like to do a nail art class; needs to do some more research on the techniques. September timeline.
