I’m the current committee chair for Hatcher’s… and we voted already… I’m the future chair for Hatcher’s…
3D Fabs committee Saturday the 21st
@Team_Moderators pin this up for all to see please and thank you
Machine shop voted on 9/14. Nick Silva remains as the Chair.
October 4th was the meeting. Chuck Graf unanimously re-elected.
I think “elected” is a euphemism for “Committee didn’t grant parole”
I am running for .CA Chair again.
Motorsports committee voted me chair. Again…
Your empire grows … first Metal Shop …now Motor Sports … what’s next?
I’m running for Fired Arts.
Pre-election polls show that there is still strong support for myself heading up Vintage Computer Committee as chairman. We’ll get a meeting on the calendar to give the membership a chance to speak in public outside of online channels and ratify the vote with committee members.
Hi longtime friend!!! So glad to see you here at the Makerspace!
Doug! I saw your name on a galley bin when Jason (Middleton) and I joined and we thought it might be you. DMS definitely has niche interest cross pollination, it’s awesome. So good to see another friendly face around!
Machine shop has already voted. Your stuck with me.
I just wanted to verify, and figured this would be the best place for it. You do not need voting rights to vote in the Chairperson Elections, correct?
You are correct. You do not need voting rights for the Chair elections.
