===Communication about Hiatus===
+
*Sometimes people do not communicate their intended hiatus to anyone. This is distinct from people who cease paying dues without consciously intending to go on hiatus.
+
*Most people email the treasurer. Usually they include an apology/excuse/explanation. Sometimes they include a time period. If they leave either one out, Kelly asks them, but previous treasurers may not have.
+
*Most people currently on hiatus do not respond to contact about their status.
+
 
+
===Terminating Hiatus===
+
*Most people have not terminated their hiatus to date.
+
*People usually terminate hiatus because they want to participate in a specific consensus or get a discounted membership at techshop.
+
*Hiatuses that are terminated appear to have no pattern in time length.
