Changed lines 51-53 from:

Treasurer report $360 for $760 left in bank, ignite netted over 505(but that goes out), We are now official Nm nonprofit stuff was good!

lets clarify membership stuff with Geoff trends +- and all(memberships number of 21 didnt match the 31 on the spreadsheet, and how are we trending?

to:

Treasurer report(sent via email inabsentia):We took in $360 at the chocolate event, and $505 at Ignite (which is pledged to Challenger). All of the bills are paid off, and we have $764 in the bank. We have 21 members (and lost one) at the end of February.

Finally, and with much waiting and frustration with the State, we are now a Domestic Non Profit Corporation in Good Standing in the State of New Mexico. This, combined with our sponsorship with the Space Federation gives us 501(c)(3) status for PayPal. I've started the process with PayPal, but they're dragging their feet...

School factory call report (on note paper because was lending my laptop)

Ignite report, Yay lots of buzz, may be the beneficiaries next time.

Chocolate hacking recap, not as strong with the push or advertising, but still good attendance, important takeouts is that events based on being cheap, and easy, and accessible,

Debate on event framing, came up, how do we make it super accessible, and sell it as a good deal?

Shorten it to say we end at 9pm,

to:

School factory call report Ray: SF is trying to get better organized, they are wanting to start up one to one talks with their hackerspaces (may or june?). They are wanting us to collaborate with other local groups(helps to cross the streams of members and advertizing) wanting more open hardware/and open atrium documentation. Rays observation is we are a fairly mature hackerspace (meaning alot of spaces are still struggling with what we have already covered. we can in tern be mentors! )

Ignite report, Yay lots of buzz, we may be the beneficiaries next time. Either way, blueshirts=good branding!

Chocolate hacking recap, not as strong with the push or advertising, but still good attendance, important takeouts is that events based on being cheap, and easy, and very accessible to all,

Debate on event framing, came up, how do we make things super accessible, and sell it as a good deal? We were told $10 was a good price for something more interactive than a movie!

We decided to shorten events to say we end at 9pm, (we can at our own discretion stay open later or charge/not charge stragglers)

Changed lines 90-91 from:

We need to contact members to find out what got them here, what would be needed to take them back. Can we get people to move to a bigger space, would members be willing to pay more for a better space?

to:

-There was further talk after the meeting after additional members got to see the space, looks like for around $1500 we could get both warehouse bays, and access to the power, we need to see his lease info, and see if we can cosign,

Before we move, We need to contact members to find out what got them here, what would be needed to keep them. Can we get people to move to a bigger space, would members be willing to pay more for a better space?
