Our last attempt to hold our 2016 AGM just happened to be on one of the hottest February days on record, so after a lively discussion in the morning - we all just melted and really not much point in doing anything inside or outside the space. So - Take #2...
MHV is a volunteer-driven organization run on chaos, donations, and luck. Being on committee isn't hard - we have a monthly committee meet and perhaps a few hours here and there outside of that. So if you think we could be doing better (we know that we could!) - please step up and help us keep MHV going!
2016 was an eventful year: we scored a new premises (that we somewhat urgently need to figure out how to break-even with); we received a $4,000 donation from the ACT Chief Minister that we'll be deciding how to spend in this AGM; we received a generous donation of a Taz 5 3D Printer from LulzBot/AlephObjects; we tried to step out of the a little by participating in community events such as GovHack, BSidesCBR etc. and we're hoping that later this year we will finally see that Glowforge laser cutter
There's 7 positions: president, vice president, treasurer, secretary, and three "general" committee. So between us there isn't much to do! If you can't make it to the AGM, you can still nominate yourself for a position and vote remotely if you wish.
