A quick intro to groups
If you head over to https://talk.lansingmakersnetwork.org/groups you should see a list of groups that exist in our community. Each Area Manager at LMN has a group that they can manage to distribute the workload of responding to issues and problems in an area. So, if you’re in the #issues-and-requests category you can mention
@TEAM_Woodshop to let the woodshop volunteers know that something needs attention.
Each of the team groups are also setup to allow anyone to request membership in the team. If you click the link on the group page, you can tell the AM you want to help out.
- Group members are those volunteers who are willing to jump up and help someone when they need help, think of the group members as the “help desk” for the area.
- You don’t need to be a member of the
@TEAMto volunteer and help out, discuss things about the area, etc. Use the area category page for that (#makerspace-areas:woodshop, for example).
- Area Managers, you have control over your group. Make the most of it, recruit members and distribute the load.
There area also groups for Members and Board Members. These groups and what they are should be obvious.
