  • Where do you need help/how to get involved?

IT - Tom Bloom

Membership (and Community outreach) - Shannon Fisher

Last Meeting: June 18, 2018

We brainstormed for volunteer recruitment ideas and plan to implement the following right away:

1. Utilize multiple avenues to advertise volunteer needs, including the forum, email, and social media. In the past, we have advertised on Talk OR email OR social media, but we can reach a broader audience by advertising volunteer needs within those resources simultaneously.

2. Shannon is creating an editable Google Doc that lists monthly makerspace events and housekeeping tasks that need volunteers. David will include a link to this document in his monthly digital newsletters that are emailed to the entire member body. We feel like providing a visual of volunteer needs, as well as who is helping, might attract more volunteers. The Google Doc will also be shared on the forum and social media.

3. Emily is creating a makerspace inventory system and spreadsheet (thanks, Emily). Volunteers will be needed to help with inventory. More details coming soon....
