Minutes for 11-16-2021

Meeting Location

Meeting was Called to Order At: 19:34


Virtual Meeting Etiquette

  • Be excellent.
  • Attendance and voting can be found in the #meetings slack channel.
  • Please show up early if you are concerned about your audio.
  • If there is no one waiting to speak feel free to do so at the next opportunity.
  • If there is someone waiting to speak, please say that you are raising your hand in the google call chat. (This will be demonstrated)
  • Please refrain from other side conversations, these can be distracting for the rest of the meeting and make it difficult for the chair to keep track of what's going on.


Experienced Members

  • Nobody introduced themselves.

New Members & Guests

  • Drake, future new member. Found us because he wants to make things, which is definitely what we do.

Show and Tell

  • Nate modified the hackaday remoticon badge and added an HDMI port in order to use a computer graphics card's HDMI I2C to program an SFP connector's compatibility EEPROM (or other I2C devices).

Old Business

Remove Third Tuesday member meeting

Modify the standing rules Regular Meetings "Regular meetings of the members shall be held on the first and third Tuesdays of each month, at 7:30 PM."
This allows us to move board meetings to third Tuesdays so allow the treasurer to have more time to prepare the monthly report for board meetings. Also third Tuesday member meetings don't typically have much business. People are still free to use any Tuesday to socialize if they want to, just no official voting business.

Result: ?

Nate supports this proposal, for historical context said that many years ago we had enough business to justify two meetings a month, but a few years later realized that it wasn't really helpful anymore. But we didn't want to go to the effort of changing the standing rules, so there was just an unofficial action to only allow motions to adjourn at the third member meeting. But we didn't document it very well, so we forgot and started having them again.
