Proposed Build Committee

I would like to propose the formation of a Build committee.
This committee would have the authority to develop a build plan,
coordinate volunteers, and purchase needed supplies from the clubs startup fund.

The issues that need to be addressed are.

  • 1. Security Cameras for the equipment and warehouse.
  • 2. Shelving for the warehouse.
  • 3. Solder Station.
  • 4. Organization of workspace for the tools.
  • 5. Installation of the tools themselves.
  • 6. Building Materials for the darkroom.
  • 7. Painting.
  • 8. Storage Containers for Members Items.

This is a preliminary list and changes in priorities
and goals can and should be made by the committee.

Thank You, Eric Chaney
