Approval of Previous Meeting's Minutes


  • Open Project Night -- everyone who showed up and Gabe for hosting!

New Members

Old Business

  • Pro RecycleWorks collaboration -- will visit their facility in late May/beginning of June with Kevin, Tayeb, and Sanjay (+ maybe others) -- Update haven't heard back but will follow up, Kevin will discuss
  • Food Kitchen -- Karen has been there, group volunteering possible. Likely in two weeks Saturday morning (9am-12pm) -- Update: No spots available for Saturday until August, have inquired directly to find other ways to help if necessary
  • Karen -- Talked to Tristan, thought he could do CTF online, interested in doing a different game from the website to change it up. He was ready to go Karen suggested that we should do a test first. Tristan could use someone to help with the admin (Meetup/promotion) and the help during the event. Gabe volunteers to do one in the next two weeks sometime (21st/22nd of May?)
  • Tayeb -- Monthly Sentiment Survey results discussion -- will request that members be vaccinated before coming to the space -- Updated guidelines sent to board for discussion at this meeting

New Business

  • Tayeb -- First HacDC in-person/hybrid event to be scheduled for next Monday -- Proposed guidelines for space usage are as follows:
   -- Masks are required within the church common spaces and the HacDC space
   -- We expect that you are vaccinated if you visit the space
   -- Ensure the AC units in the window are running to ensure better ventilation
   -- We are keeping a 5 person limit for events for now

One idea that I discussed was the purchase of an air purifier for the space -- there is evidence that a HEPA filter can catch covid. This may not be fully necessary for covid-safety, but it seemed like an idea with other great positive externalities like reducing VOCs from soldering and ventilating the space better.
