Arch Reactor Blog



As a reminder Arch Reactor is entirely kept running by volunteers, which if you remember at the time you joined is mandatory for everyone to serve at least 2 hours per month.

But if you want to be a total bada&&, considered to be a super macho beefcake/beefcakess with brains and brawn,

serving on the board is one way to help keep our community and space going strong (...and that pretty much will cover your volunteer time and then some).

If you are willing to serve please feel free to nominate yourself on this form, or if you know someone that would be a good fit, please nominate them.

We currently need nominations for the President, Secretary, and Director of Education.

The current members filling these roles are precluded from running due to our new term limit rules.

the above form will allow you to submit nominations, as well as seeing who is currently nominated. Google Docs Virtual Whiteboard of Democracy 2021

Please use this form to submit nominations for the Board of Directors. Nominations will be accepted through January 18th.

Below is a description of the duties of each position as it is listed in our Bylaws and Standing Rules.

At the bottom of the page, you can submit the name of your nominee and what position you are nominating them for.

ALSO, THERE IS A DEBATE TONIGHT!!! (and welding curtain mounting got pushed back a day)

Every year around this time we like to offer a few more "open" hours to accomodate our part time members, those who don't have full access, so that they have plenty of opportunity to get in and make some Christmas Gifts, etc. 

So starting this week, every night should be opened. 


The Board.

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!

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.



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