Board Meeting: March 15th, 2020

Time & Location

  • Meeting Located virtually on Mattermost
  • 2:00 PM


Board: Issac Merkle, Jondale Stratton, Tracy Homer, Bryan Howard, Suzannah Alexander, Sean Simoneau, Sue Joslin, Billy Huddleston


  • Due to the Covid-19 global pandemic, it was decided that we would meet virtually via mattermost. Pants optional.
  • Financial update:
    • Looked at budget for 2020 - still needs some tweaking. This could be a slower year if we are all quarantined and can not hold classes.
    • Probably can't spend as freely as last year
  • It seems apparent that we need to put things on hold because of Covid-19
  • There was going to be a Czar meeting but it was decided to postpone it instead of try for virtual
  • We will update the calendar and put a sign on the door saying we are closed for the time being - send out an email to the membership and facebook and all that stuff
  • Issac, Suzannah, and Sean wrote a policy on doing product reviews on the KM channel and it was great - no problems or objections at all. Good job!
  • Tracy will confer with the Killswitch Committee about setting a new date
  • Our HVAC member is awesome and will be starting in the next few weeks with getting the a/c ducting installed
  • Tracy added stuff to the agenda...
  • Next board meeting - hopefully in person - April 26th, 2pm
