Members (New and Old) -

If you care about your safety and the safety of others at the space or have nothing to do at all, or just need to get out of the house... THEN COME ON DOWN TUESDAY Night and pitch in some of your time!  

Every Sunday and Tuesday Evening during our "OPEN BUILD/OPEN TO THE PUBLIC" night we try to focus on projects that will better the space and bring our membership together as a community.

And the Board of Directors had previously stated, as we are slowly getting back into the swing of things, they will start reviewing those volunteer hours ... so  make sure you are entering them into the system so that your status remains in good standing.  Also, this is a great way to socialize, get to know your fellow makers, give back to the space and possibly complete your 2 hour volunteer requirement.   

10/19/21 OPEN BUILD NIGHT (DETAILS):  Check in with our Sargeant at Arms, Craig!  The idea for the evening is that we take down the cameras as they are now (bad views and dark areas) and place them and a few new ones in places with better visiblity, well lit, and more coverage areas! 

We have them, so let's use them and use them wisely... 

 

Join Craig and fellow makerspace/hackerspace members around 7pm!

HEY EVERYONE!!!

Elections will be coming around again soon, and as this board will change, changes still yet to be made and the next few business meetings are where YOUR VOTES COUNT!  

This coming Business Meeting we will be announcing possible changes to the election process, to which you will be asked to vote on at the following meeting. *Only full time members vote, and don't forget you can vote by Proxy!

A proxy is a person who is deisgnated by another to represent that individual at a meeting or before a public body. ... It also refers to the written authorization allowing one person to act on behalf of another. In corporate law, a proxy is the authority to vote stock.

 

SO.... 

Please Please Please Mark your calendars, set reminders, do whatever you need to and try and attend! 

ALL MEMBERS BUSINESS MEETINGS HELD 1st TUESDAYS of the month at 8pm and

open to all to attend our monthly BOARD MEETINGS HELD last WEDNESDAYS of the month at 7pm.

This is also a great time and place for new members to ask questions and really understand how to become involved.

Arch Reactor holds annual elections for the board around this time.  Like most things in life right now, we are in need of making some adjustments. The board, along with several active members' input, have unanimously decided there is not a practical way to hold elections as they are traditionally conducted this year.  As those of you who attended the virtual business meeting tonight already know, we have put in a lot of work to come up with a process that will allow us to hold elections online this year in a practical fashion.  We do take our commitment to our bylaws seriously.  However,  we feel this is the best option and it is better than not holding elections or asking our members to do multiple votes over an extended timeframe and managing that process.

 

The 2021 election process will move forward as documented below:

Nominations for Board Positions

  • Nomination's start tonight and run until January 18th.

  • Current nominees can be viewed from this spreadsheet:

Sewing Machine Cabinet - Closed

 

Big update for anyone hoping to sew at Arch Reactor, our machine is back from it's clearning/calibration!    Back in September, Arch Reactor was able to purchase a vintage Elna Special machine with its original cabinet.   AR had been borrowing a similar machine from one of our members for a few years and now we have our own.   The cabinet has been in our Classroom for a while with a loaner-machine, but our own machine is back from its professional cleaning and calibration.
