Present: Paul, Edward, Lucio, Kevin, Jimmy, KJ, Lucia, ShanShan, Sara, Mika, Jonathan (minutes)

Decision items (D)

  • Every first staff meeting of the month - staff collectively empties the money box, enter the data in spreadsheet, and "cleans up" the staff list according to Nov 12 Staff Rules.
  • Staff should pay membership fees - if no objections this week, it will pass.
  • Official membership sign-up times will be wed night and Sat. Need to train staff to be able to sign up members with new process (e.g. getting card printed). Note: People can sign up anytime, but membership cards will be printed on Wed and Sat.

Actions item to complete over following week (A)

  • Paul and Edward taking the lead on launching membership sign-up system.
  • Jimmy to print out Xinchejian code of conduct pdf. Paste one next to the money box.
  • WHO? - when people sign up as members for XCJ, make sure they should get a welcome email including rules of the space, opening times, etc.
  • Edward to fix door alarm during this weekend's Infrastructure Fixup
  • Edward, Paul, and Jonathan to install security cameras weekend of 12/14
  • Jimmy to send out email to staff to track who will be around during holiday season to open up space.

Props (P)

  • Props to Kevin, Jimmy, and Techyizu for organizing a great Hackyizu weekend, and DFRobot for donating equipment.
