Join us to work towards opening Birmingham's first Maker/Hackerspace.
At this meetup you can find out what we are about if you are new to the Maker movement or you can join in as we discuss the direction of the group with concentration on agenda topics that need resolution.
Presentations will include: World Maker Faire summary and Atlanta Mini Maker Faire discussion.
Hopefully ratification of the bylaws will proceed (updates as to the confirmation of this fact are forthcoming) and voting for our first non-interim officers will occur.
As always the meeting is free to attend and participate in, but if you would like to be a full member please bring cash or check to pay your monthly dues.
Meeting is BYOB and refreshments/snacks are more than welcome.
If you are a full member and you wish to add items to the agenda or would like to give a presentation to the group please contact me via [masked] or the comments here and I will update this description.
We are considering a public venue for this event please stay tuned for updates.
UPDATE: If you have any suggestions, requests or questions about the website please bring them with you. Shirley Hicks will be presenting and taking your feedback on the look and functionality of the site. Additionally we will discuss better utilization of the site by the membership.
UPDATE: Location has been added. Unfortunately the Library was not available for this meeting. We will try to have all future planning meetings at a more public venue, but currently we will use David's house. AGENDA WILL INCLUDE RATIFICATION OF BYLAWS AND OFFICER/BOARD NOMINATIONS. If you are a dues paying member please take a moment to read over the bylaws on the wiki. The bylaws posted are up to date and intended for finalization. If you are dues paying and unable to attend please notify on of the organizers or interim officers of your vote/nominations.
