  • Space/Cost: Budget approval for A/C ducting repair Abyssknight 13:48, 7 December 2011 (CST)
    • Ian's note - needs to be part of a broader "check the AC, ensure everything functions, work with Dave Woods to remedy. If we are MODDING the original system, beyond initial "make sure it works", then FamiLAB may have cost. Ian
  • Expenses during the month: How will we approve, how will we reimburse, what happens if the person loses the receipt Digitalman2112 06:17, 8 December 2011 (CST)
  • Increase focus by moving to one microcontroller Monday per month, or leave as-is? Da3v
    • I had an idea to make one night a month the "classroom instruction" night and the other more of a "show and tell". Really if people are only interested in instruction one night a month would make sense. Mack
  • Membership levels: Current structure defines "thinker" and "maker" levels. There has been objection to limiting access to tools. Mack
  • Plan to get the lab "presentable" by December 19th for Micro Monday and occupational licensing Abyssknight 12:48, 9 December 2011 (CST)
    • I was thinking a contest where teams of 2-3 members adopt a room. Best room wins a gift certificate or something along those lines. All costs of renovation would be covered by the adoptive team. We need motivation to get it done, and without spending a ton of cash. :) abyssknight
  • Logo contest as brought up by Dave Woods, John Bent Cope, and others. Abyssknight 13:04, 9 December 2011 (CST)
