  • Review of/actions from the last meeting
  • Financials
  • Good state, electricity going up - JM
  • Expanding
  • Went well, been successful, need plumbing
  • Paperwork - JM suggests we review Cambridge Makespace's
    • JM - to circulate Makespace's paperwork for next meeting
  • Free desk day to "Friends" - PaulFreeman to ask two friends, and two possible friends what they think of the idea * PF - Overcomplicates things, not worth doing.
  • HakimCassimally to draft a grievances policy (check with AdrianMcEwen to get him to dig out London Hackspace example)
  • RossJones (ideally) to contact our friendly lawyer to see what would be best for a contract to arrange for permanent deskers * All to review Cambridge and comment at next meeting.
  • Access (added by JohnMcKerrell)
  • Electronic doors allow more access, how do we handle this?
  • JM suggests we need doorbell and easier remote opening of door.
  • Consider adding this as a task for the hackday below
  • AM suggests adding ideas to this: * http://wiki.doesliverpool.com/HackTheSpace
  • Technician-in-Residence
  • Idea suggested by PatrickFenner, have agreed it's a good idea, will offer for a fixed period.
  • Roles
  • Admin support (deal with hot deskers, do tours, inductions for space and equipment)
  • Helping out with opening up, responding to emails.
  • Registered Office
  • Consensus seems to be that it's fine. No charge for permanent people or workshop members. £15/month (i.e. Friend with Benefits (box)) otherwise
  • Should really sort out some paperwork making it clear how long we'll deal with post once they've left and making it clear that they should change their registered office if they move.
  • Say 1 month for storing post
  • Storage only, no telling
  • Advertise registered address only for permanent
  • Funding
  • ERDF - No thanks
  • Other smaller - maybe?
  • If someone wanted us to be involved they would have to come to us with a list of the outputs that we would be held to when they got and organised the funding.
  • Expansion
  • JM suggests testing the water of employing people by paying for some things we're not already doing, like marketing, design, promo.
  • AM to arrange meeting with Colin Dyas
  • Our own space would require a receptionist
  • Own building is on the back burner
  • Slowly colonise the fourth floor
  • Potential Future Events
  • PF - Website Hack Day
  • Get more than just DoES + HowWhyDIY along * Get Creative Liverpool along
  • End of Feb probably
  • PF - Unconference (April/May?)
  • Experiment in putting on self funding unconference
  • General agreement that it's a good idea
  • JM mentioned having a "Girl Geeks BarCamp" in Liverpool too as an option for "doing another barcamp in the year without simply doing a barcamp"
