Hello makers, at the November 15th board meeting we will decide who to appoint for our 2019 area leads.
Please use our signup form at bit.ly/makeict131
This form is to collect volunteers for:
- Makerspace director & area leads: please sign up by November 8 so we have a week before the November 15th board meeting to pre-discuss.
- Assistant area leads: to be appointed by leads after our board decision is made
Both outgoing and incoming area leads will be asked to attend the December 10th area lead meeting to work on transitioning and start the 2019 budget process.
I really believe that area leads are the most important people in our makerspace. I don’t know a single member who hasn’t been helped by one of them along the way of becoming a great maker. They keep our tools running smoothly and safely, they’re here for advice, they decide how each area can be the best it can be. If an area lead has helped you this year now is a great time to let them know you really appreciate them and want them to come back! If you see someone who would make a great lead for an area you’re passionate about, now is a great time to direct them towards the signup form! We are all area lead recruiters. The most important thing we can do as an organization is have the right leaders in the right places. New members may join for our tools, but we know that they stay for our people.
I want to keep this topic bumped up so reply with… whatever you want! What area leads are you thankful for? Existing area leads - what did you learn this year? What assistants do you need? How can we support you? 2019 will be another very exciting year and thank you in advance for volunteering.
