  • The Move – OMF is leaving in Feb 2021 or Oct 2020. Conflicting info provided. They are the anchor tenant and are responsible for collecting rent from other tenants, denhac included. OMF approached us about becoming the new ‘building managers’. We’re not interested. Digi is willing to take on building management with his business. 

NEW BUSINESS

  • IBM Qiskit Summer Jam: Jack –  Qiskit is IBMs python toolkit for quantum computing. Jack will provide more details after his meeting tomorrow. 
  • (Goodbye Old) Laser – Justin may be interested in buying the laser from denhac. Former member, Robb, may also be interested in buying it but he hasn’t seen it since he’s not currently a member. Do we want to create a poll to determine its fate? Justin is going to create a poll to see what the members want to do with the laser. Stay tuned. 
  • LearnDash Plugin: Justin –  Training and testing (LMS). Would be used to train and ‘certify’ people to use equipment (like the new laser). $159.00/year. 

⊕ BOARD VOTE: Do we want to purchase the plugin?

Result: All in favor
