Old Business

Signage (Josh) - update. No update. We approved trading 2 month membership for a graphic artist to create the sign.

2nd Birthday June 25 (Josh and Saphia) already mentioned in Officer section.

MOBICON (Dana, Brian, Rachel, David) - observations. We had a free vendor table and gave out a lot of cards. David said the numbers were up from last year, and the board games were a success. Logistics were better this year. Membership can come from Game designers (custom pieces), awards, Costume fabrication and customization. Tools such as 3D printer, Laser Cutter, CNC are tools they could use. Brian Wright worked a few shifts, talked to a lot of people to come visit. Dana worked several shifts and used the time to tell people what a Makerspace is. Consensus is that Mobicon was a good place to be since there are so many things we have that they can use. Other vendors came by - Breakout Mobile, someone from Baldwin County that wanted to start a Makerspace.

Robin attended the meeting and mentioned ways to collaborate with other groups, such as the film community.
