MESSAGE FROM THE TWIN CITIES MAKER BOARD OF GOVERNORS

Postby wammie » Wed Dec 09, 2009 1:04 pm

Our organization was recently approached by Hack Factory of Minnesota (HFM). They have expressed a strong interest in joining forces with Twin Cities Maker (TC Maker) to realize our common goal of a local, affordable, member-supported workshop. After an introductory meeting between our board and several of their members, both groups feel that working together is in both groups' best interest, and support this as a goal we can accomplish in reasonably short order. Members of our board are working with them and other appropriate resources to formulate a plan that retains the intents of both groups in a legal format. Because there is a lot to work out, we have postponed our General Membership Meeting for December by one week, to the 16th at 7 PM.

HFM is intending to sign a lease next week, and barring any complications, we would like to hold our General Membership Meeting in their new space. Because this may be a pivotal meeting for TC Maker, we encourage all current dues paying members and interested folks who aren't current members to attend next week's meeting. Details are still very fluid, but the Board of Governors intends to present a plan and ballot vote to partner with HFM. Rest assured, prior agreements in terms of dues for both groups and the majority of structure of TC Maker are intended to be retained.

To help us plan for the meeting, if you plan to attend, please shoot off a quick email to twincitiesmaker(-at-)gmail.com stating your intent, and we'll get you the address in a confirmation email once the lease has been signed. Please plan to bring along a folding chair, as it'll be an empty space.

This message is being presented simultaneously via our blog, wiki, forum, and email as we feel it's important that all of our community be aware of it.

We wish you a happy and safe winter season and hope to see you on December 16th!

Respectfully Yours,

Twin Cities Maker Board of Governors
