Welcome to LVL1!
We always start our meetings with shoutouts People doing cool things for their fellow hackers! Shout outs this week go to:
- Sara von Roenn - Doing the weekly maintenance to the laser!!!!
- Bill and Mel - Tour of the Dumpster
- Tim Miller - Replaced the belt on the plotter
- Amy Shah - Won a big award at Hackermoon! Contributor of the year Mental Health!!!!
The Tim VanSant Makership = LVL1's Makership Program
We need to AWARD a Makership!
Note: This program is funded completely through donations and NOT through our membership dues.
- We currently have enough funds to offer a Makership. Please submit an application to become a member of LVL1! See our treasurer, make a donation.
- Members: please talk up the Makership to potential new members. Makerships are a good way to interest minorities and women in LVL1. Emphasize the experience and the opportunity. Getting a project done is less important.
- Makership Application Deadline is the last day of each month @ 11:59 PM.
- Submit your project for a chance to win 3 months of LVL1 membership and a $100 reimbursement toward your project expenses.
- Apply at www.lvl1.org/makership. Also, send any questions about how to submit a successful application to www.lvl1.org/makership. We want to award a Makership!
- If your application is not approved, PLEASE revise and resubmit next month.
- If you would like to donate ($5/mo) to this worthy cause, see one of the directors and we can set you up!
