So, we’re not finding a consensus on when we can meet, and we need to get started putting together the equipment list for the LMN “ideal” space. So, in lieu of meeting (if you haven’t chimed in with your availability, please do, we’ll see if we can meet after Thanksgiving), I need equipment lists from Area Managers. What equipment does our “ideal” or “dream” space need to be top tier?
Give me as much detail as you’re able. Prices, links, etc will all be helpful in collating this information into an ask.
Next, I’ve started a document tentatively titled “How we run our makerspace” where we can start to put into words how we’re going to work together as area managers to run the space. It’s been shared with all the area managers to edit. (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1VyJGJ5qQVDuB317qTyT8IFkDI3gIqsF_P43VQBthKrA/edit?usp=sharing)
Last, in concert with the “ideal” shop inventories, what budget requests do we have for the areas for the upcoming year? Not only new purchases, but what expendables does your area have that need to be budgeted for?
