Agenda

Agenda Item 1:

Usage of the building by private individuals, for their own purposes, “for rent”.

It has been proposed that we should both officially record this committee decision, and open the decision up for other/s, subject to suitable guards, as required.

BACKGROUND: The committee were previously approached by Shaun, who asked if he would be able to “store” some of his equipment in the HSBNE building, and what it would cost. We reached an agreement with him on the following:

A - if he maintains his membership (ie $60/month), then just like any other member, his membership entitles him to “use the building”, so long as he doesn’t interfere with others, etc.

B - for “private storage” - he asked for 40sqm, and we agreed to this at an additional fee of $40/month. ( a very low fee if compared to commercial rates, due to the fact that it’s temporary, and insecure, etc)

FOR DISCUSSION/VOTE:

Agenda Item 2:

1 - Shaun would like to officially offer the usage of his “large machines” ( the mill and horizontal band saw) to all HSBNE members in exchange for consideration that his monthly “rent” be lowered or removed.

There are a few implication/s to this decision, if we were to go ahead with it, so I’ll try to raise some of them here, so we have a place to discuss, etc:

DISCUSSION/VOTE:

Agenda Item 3:

It has been suggested that we should consider formalising the concept of “stations” as a recognised part of the HSBNE infrastructure.

For those not familiar with the idea, here’s some possible examples: eg: “PCB manufacture Station” , “SMD Station”, “Anodizing Station”, “3D Printing Station” etc. It’s also been suggested that we should encourage user/s who would like to formally document and implement these sorts of proven process/ system with whatever sorts of encouragement HSBNE can offer, perhaps even with a monetary value on completion of a “station” being implemented and working.

DISCUSSION/VOTE:

Assuming Yes to the above:
