Action Item Review
Show and Tell
Grant Opportunity: Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan
- Matt O. - The Akron Ohio Hackerspace got 15k grant through their community something foundation. There's foundations that just want to give away. I got to thinking that maybe there was a foundation like that for us.
Nate B is appreciative of Matt taking the initiative. They almost hug, but keep their composure for the good of the membership.

Wardens-- what does it meant o be a Zone warden? How much Trust
Marie- Review of bylaws most people began putting in their own money. We want to balance the motivation of wardens, and using groups funds for the good of the group.
the idea is to have wardens elected every year. Or some sort of yearly review with the wardens.
If you have ideas or strong opinions-- talk to Marie. She will be putting together a motion for the next meeting.

Terry asks if there will be some sort of "job description" for Wardens.
