Groups of members and/or volunteers that are focused on a specific area or activity in the makerspace. Any group of 3 people with a common interest can request to form a committee and be given authority to do things around the space.
Committees typically meet once a month on a specific day of the month (first Friday, third Tuesday, etc).
These are committees consisting of members that make use of the shops and want to contribute their time and energy towards improving it. These groups typically discuss topics like organizing, equipment upkeep and purchases, improvement projects, classes, and more.
Members are welcome to join any Shop Committee they are interested in to get involved.
Meetings are posted on the Meetings page alongside classes and events.
Below you can find the current Shop Manager, as well as a link to the google drive folder where meeting notes and agendas are kept.
