3. new member Miwa thank you!

4. still need about 10,000 for big trash cans

5. Memberships:
Lots of discussion about why people would / wouldn't join. There's lots of interest and people on mailing list however, still need more members. Some thoughts of newer members were:
- People are interested in finding out more but may not be sure about how or what they can do outside of the workshops or how to get involved.
- website is more for people who are already in THS.
- website is a little confusing for people who aren't part of the Hacker Space and too text heavy.

Some ideas to help were:
- pics and graphics are good esp. of events on website
- perhaps creating a 'what is THS' 2 minute video
- clearer information on projects with callouts for people interested in helping. eg. Gardening, tech etc. *Maybe revamp the 'steering groups' we discussed a little while ago
- bigger price difference in workshops, more incentive to join
- clearer articulation about what the community is geared towards.
- Signup for class form on website
- clear link to mailing list
- offering of 6 months memberships as well

6. Meetings:
Cooking and project show n tell, then admin stuff format seems to work well
