Updates from Previous Meeting


  • Caroline got rid of both the login system and comment boxes on our website.

DIY or Don't Expo

  • We will have a 10'x10' table, and a rack.

  • We will put together the booth at the space this weekend (2/9 & 10) in preparation.

  • At least 4 members are selling things so far.

Front Door

  • We should get some kind of generic Nest doorbell so we can see who is outside the door. This instead of a door with a window.

Customer Relationship Management (CRM) Software

  • Ray is in charge of the committee for this. He was absent at this meeting. The board will ask him to demo what he and Carissa have done so far with Sales Force software.

Social Media Committee

  • Bailey is abdicating all social media responsibility at the end of February.

  • Dave will set up a committee to take over the responsibilities. Caroline will also be on it.


  • Wearable Tech was very successful. All kits were purchased. We made over $300 and may even get a new member from it.

  • Soldering class will be held in March. Dave will help teach. From previous experience, Bailey recommends staggering several sessions over the day.

  • There's been no further communication regarding the materials class.

Intern Program

  • Applicants need to apply to the board, not to Bailey.

  • We haven't advertised for the position yet. In the past we've posted on our website, a Drake site, Grand View site, and Facebook.
