President's Report

  • Discussion of fundraising efforts
* Friends of HacDC
* Foundations
  • Update on non-profit status

We are "Pending 501(c)3" and can accept donations. We must pay tax on those donations if our status is declined (unlikely). Have drafted letters for cash and in-kind donations. Trying to retrieve actual IRS notification of receipt of 501(3)c paperwork from Daniel P. Tim B. mentioned that now donors such as Think Geek and electronics supply houses can write off parts donations.

William Gibb

  • Still working with the resilient community folks. They are pretty busy but want to get their article on us done by this months end.
  • Working with a friend in Boston who is running a open-source alternative to MIT's design for empowerment course. It is a course focused on building communities like HacDC. The DFE eXtended course is hosted @ & will have 1-2 articles on HacDC this fall featured there.
  • Thinking of doing a workshop/learningshop on spectroscopy based off the materials mark Adams sent out yesterday.

Katie Bechtold

  • Planning an LED Embroidery workshop and another tea night.
  • Literal door bell for HacDC?
  • Temporary tattoos - any interest evinced so far?
  • Willing to organize drafting of Standing Rules when that becomes sufficiently more important than becoming financially secure.
