Our first meeting of the new year will be held on January 4th, at 6:30 PM. We’re going to meet on the main floor of the Boilerhouse Cafe at North Central College (29 N Loomis St, Naperville, IL 60540).
As always, this meeting is open to the public, so if you’re interested in what we’re doing, we encourage you to come out and share your ideas!
This meeting is an important one for several reasons:
- It will be our first meeting as an official entity! Adam and Jay did a great job getting the paperwork filled out and submitted last week, so Workshop 88 is actually a legal entity!
- We’ll be collecting dues for the first time. This has some bearing on the next point.
- We’ll be electing officers and committee chairs. If you’re interested in serving in one of these positions, and you haven’t told us yet, send email to email@example.com and let us know how you want to help! To vote in this election, you’ll need to pay for a full membership ($50 per month, or $500 per year). If you want to contribute, but can’t afford the $50/month, there is also a $25/month supporting membership that doesn’t come with voting rights.
- We’ll be approving our bylaws. This document will lay out the membership privileges, operating procedures, things like that.
I’m continuing two traditions with this post, neither of which I’m proud of.
1) It is rather late notice, yet again, though we did send out email announcing this meeting a couple of weeks ago.
2) Upon looking back at the previous meeting announcements, I noticed I’ve used a different date format for each one. So here’s yet another one, just to confuse your calendar a bit more.
EDIT: Okay, three traditions! I’ve forgotten to put the time in the post as well… 6:30 PM.
Here’s the agenda for this evening. We’ll be meeting at North Central College again, on the main floor of the White Academic Center (the same place as the meeting on the 7th). We should have the place mostly to ourselves again. If you can’t make it because of holiday commitments, we’ll see you after the new year!
The link below has some more details (and I don’t believe you need a Facebook account to view it.).

Look for the Workshop 88 logo, stop by and introduce yourself! If you know you’re planning on being there, leave a note in the comments and we’ll look for you.
Some of the things we’ll be discussing:
- Legal structure of the hackerspace
- Membership structure and guidelines
- Work that still needs to be done to build out our online presence
- Current projects
