Board Makeup

It has been over 1 year since this board was formed. Does everyone want to continue on the board and in their current roles? Are there any new people that would like to join the board?

Richard Sharp has resigned from the Board and his role as Secretary. At the next meeting Jacob Walker will also resign from the board and his role as President. A new vote for appointment to those roles will be had at the next meeting.

Sandip Southekal indicated he may wish to resign at the end of the year.

Event Hiatus

Attendance at in-person events has been waning for quite some time. It is demoralizing to ask speakers to present, organizers to run things, AV people to record, and social people to promote then only have 3 people in attendance.

Jacob wants to propose a hiatus on all in-person events for October, November and December with the exception of Code and Coffee. The intent is to give organizers a break and possibly increase attendee demand by creating scarcity. In the new year we could bring events back with a bang.

Study Hall specifically suffers from a lack of consistent volunteers to host. If it is to come back after the hiatus it needs a specific champion to run it and possibly to have a new vision.
