Membership Binder

There is a new binder! The old binder now has actual members in it, the new binder has people who are going through the membership process.

Lots of people going through the membership process, including people who used to be members, resigned, and now want to be members again.

User:Jack was up for membership. He shoots! He scores! User:Jack is now a member of Noisebridge.

Discussion

Question: do the weekly activities listed at Meeting actually happen regularly?

Answer: Generally, yes, although people have slowly been starting up after the vacation. If you turn up to something and there's no-one there, please post to nb-discuss and make a note on the wiki, so we know to nudge someone and eventually remove it from the list.

Question: can we move that pile of crap by the elevator? Answer: The pile of crap by the elevator is stuff to be taken to the dump. There is a communal sense that somebody is coming to get it, and take it to the dump in mid-February. If others wish to take part or all of it to the dump or anywhere else before then, that is fine.
