  • Announcements/new business:

    • Interest in getting a new 3d printer (Prusa Mk3s kit - $750). Decided that we should try and fundraise this amount since there is a lot of interest. Would also like to mention at the show & tell. Nate would like to do a live-stream or class on the actual assembly of the machine once we got it.
    • Rebuilding Stepcraft CNC - Currently being looked at by Tim Saucer; Andrew would like to participate in this effort.
  • Hackathon (nhacks2021.org) - Nate will reach out. Non-profit discount? We don't really have a product or brand to offer, mentorship will potentially help out a lot.

    • Joe would like to make a plan to make a plan!
    • Updates to bylaws/standing rules
    • Plan for growth -- how to get more people involved, meet their volunteer obligations (or scrap that if it will never work)
    • Hone a finer vision and purpose for the organization: how much does the AHA service members vs. the community, what is the "community" (i.e. includes Ypsi? Further out?), do we want diversity goals, etc.
    • James: getting the organization to reflect what's written as documentation -- day-to-day operations, bigger governance items. Review and revise bylaws and standing rules! Become less of a membership-run organization.
