Annual Membership Meeting On ZOOM: Saturday, October 3
We’ve scheduled our annual meeting for Saturday 10/3, starting at 1:00pm .
To keep everyone safe we will be holding the meeting and election remotely. You be able to attend the annual meeting via Zoom, look for more meeting information to come.
We’ll go over the previous year’s financial s and major happenings, and talk about future plans. We’ll also be voting for two Governing Board seats that are up for reelection this year. There will be more information coming out as we get closer to the meeting date.
Which brings up a couple of sub-points:

The meeting agenda is also open
Got something you’d like to discuss at the Annual Meeting? Let the Board [email protected] know that too! We need to get the agenda at least mostly set by Friday 9/25, so please submit your items before then. There will still be the chance to bring things up at the meeting, but 9/25 is the last day we can get it onto the agenda that will be sent to all members. (Why do we send it out to all members? We want members to be involved and state law says we have to!)

These positions are an excellent way to make a positive impact on the Twin City Maker community, the lives of others in it, and those who are touched by it’s impact.

Twin Cities Maker will be having its usual weekly meet and greet at the Hack Factory this Wednesday, Jan 13, at 7 pm. This event is open to the public as well as members.
For those new to the organization, our weekly meetings are usually geek fests where you can meet up with and talk to people about whatever catches your fancy. Ask for help, share thoughts, inspire and be inspired.
We’ll also start planning for the future of the Hack Factory. We would like to start planning a kickoff event for the near future, and we’ll need a small committee of enthusiastic makers to help pull that off. If you’re interested, come to the meeting and we’ll get you in the loop on that.
Of course, anyone wanting to pay dues or bring in tools (or anything else they want to contribute to the stocking of the space) is welcome to do so.
We’ll see you there!
