Community Meeting Notes
Facilities Discussion: Cooler/Drinking Water
Water cooler is here. Its ready to be installed, just needs some basic plumbing. Timmus A is still lead. Ben H asked about location? Will be by bathroom, maybe need a sign. Brian L reminds us any excuse to get people to talk to us, the better. Will be done by this weekend.
Facilities Discussion: Red Bull Machine
Red Bull Machine. Machine will be stocked tomorrow. Price will be approximately $1.50 per, to cover costs.
Facilities Discussion: Chairs
Chairs. Jeremy S kicked off our meeting discussing chairs. First off we’ve been seeing conference room chairs running into the main space. While we maintain ourselves as an agile space, we have to maintain the functionality of our space, including ensuring rooms have chairs. In general, we do need more chairs for the coworking space. Shall we launch a “chair drive/fundraiser”? Trish G introduced the idea of colored chairs for hotdesks/seats. Want to be careful that people aren’t possessive of chairs!
Facilities Initiative: Overview.
This week’s Initiative Discussion of the week is Facilities Initiative. Jeremy S gave an overview of the current facilities initiative beyond what was already discussed.
Facilities Ideas: Single Seat Phone Booth. Susan B. and Greg T suggest a phonebooth room or two.
Facilities Ideas: Manifesto on the Wall. Need a volunteer for it!
Pimp My Gangplank / Back Room Cleanup: We have an interior designer to plan our backrooms. Also will need to clean up 260.

Post Event Report: ASU E-Ship Ecosystem
Jeremy S talked about his collaboration with Vincent from GP Avondale evangelizing GPA & GPC. He explained how, not only was the opportunity useful to the audience, but he learned a lot too. In general, the conversation moved to GP evangelism being fun, educational, and worthwhile to participate in. We need to share these more and get more involvement.
Lets make some t-shirts… more promotion!!! We need them! History has Stephanie coordinating but cost was prohibitive. Lederman will lead up effort to get shirts in the space!
