Director Reports

President's Report

As reported last month, the BoD has approved accepting the donation of a Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM). The SEM is now ready to be picked up and we have about three weeks to collect it. It is currently in Norfolk, VA and is a large, heavy piece of equipment. We will need to rent/borrow a truck (ideally one with a lift-gate) to transport it up to HacDC, and we'll need several strong volunteers to help us load, and unload the truck (including bringing it up the stairs and into the workshop). Additionally, we will need some help making space for it in the workshop. We are currently shooting for Saturday, March 29th.

Vice President's Report

Treasurer's Report

Here is the financial summary spreadsheet for February 2014: File:HacDC Financials 2014 02.pdf. We gained two members in the last month: Elizabeth Smith and Ariam Mogos. We lost two members in the last month: Tim Dixon and Nick Mapsy. We have 46 dues-paying members in good standing, two permanently dues-waived members, four temporarily dues-waived members, and five members who are behind on dues.

Project Awesome

Here is the Project Awesome spreadsheet for February: File:HacDC PA Projects-2014 02.pdf. Once again we are in the red for the month, so there is no Project Awesome dividend. :(

Secretary's Report

NonHacDC calendar is being populated. Need to put it in a more public place and open it up to members for editing. Otherwise nothing significant to report.

Quick reminder that our first Laurel-accredited ham radio licensing exam session starts at noon March 22 (a week from this coming Saturday). Review/questions are welcome at tomorrow's (March 12) HARC meeting.

If you're interested in getting licensed, take your exams here for free! Other exam dates this year: June 21 and Nov. 8.

We also need more examiners who can help out at these sessions; if you're already licensed (General or above) and want to help, let me know.

Old Business

Provide Martin a keyholding honorary (nonpaying) membership.

New Business

Approve Article IV of the Proposed Standing Rules. This codifies our existing policies and empowers the BoD to reschedule member meetings for the following week in the event that an emergency (such as weather) forces the cancellation of a scheduled meeting.
