Meeting Minutes

Greg started the meeting at 19:47. The treasurer's report was not available for this meeting due to circumstances.

Laser procedures have been posted. Please look over them. The laser has been temporarily turned sideways and the arcade cabinet has been displaced temporarily for the effort to make PPE masks. We have made approximately 3000 face shields and we're starting to spin down that effort with 20 sheets left to go. We may get a laser tube and power supply donated due to our efforts. Big thanks to Diana Valdez who has been coordinating this effort.

No events are occurring other than Tuesday online meetups.

Jeff and Michael called into Nation of Makers, they are targeted more toward well-funded organizations. Jeff offered to pay $100 out of pocket the first year to see how things go. The major benefit is being listed in their directory. It helps to have the backing of a national organization if we're writing grants.

The next meeting will occur on May 14
