Barebones agenda is here.
If you have a project that you’d like to be included in the slideshow Frisbee Round or a Member Superlative for a Hive Five, please link below.

We have some new guidelines that need feedback and discussion regarding guest tool / equipment usage and the Hive’s policy for borrowing Hive assets. Please take a moment to read through what Leadership has been discussing, so you can contribute to the conversation!

Membership, Policy Clarification: In response to Less than Excellent Tool borrowing we are reasserting the no tool loaning philosophy. Tools are disappearing! What tools may members borrow? Hive13 Code of conduct says you can’t take any tools from Hive13. No borrowing. We need to clarify and limit the borrowing process. It’s too loose now. Go to Leadership Discussion to discuss Tool Policy. For Now, Tools may only be Borrowed with Advance Permission of the Area Warden or Member of Leadership. Tim Gregg is volunteering to help work on a tool inventory / library and coordinate with Jack M.
The process of what items may be borrowed will be evolving. Not all items have inventory tags – What may be borrowed? Set permission only now. Inventory list and library are valuable assets to Hive13 members only if they are available. Should we have a specific tool library for loaning tools?

Only Members may operate tools requiring certification. Some tools are off limits to anyone under 18.
We have recently modified this to allow for more educational opportunities. Please understand that these changes are to be allowed strictly on a case-by-case basis, and need to be signed off on by either a member of leadership and/or the Warden for the particular equipment to be used.
Guests may use certification required equipment given:

  1. they have been given appropriate safety training by their host or another qualified member,
  2. they are actively supervised by their host,
  3. The host assumes responsibility for any damage or injury that occurs as a consequence of the guest’s usage of the space and tools.
