Regarding reimbursement for Model Rocket kits. See Lisa's posts on Slack for more detail.

These meeting's minutes may also be relevant (hyperlink goes to section on rockets).



Treasurers comment

  • She is entitled to the reimbursement; currently busy trying to check if it has already been sent (and missed) or not, before it gets done.
  • No action required.

We're at a membership size where a lot of people don't know each other anymore. While it would be “ideal” to require photos from all members that has a variety of privacy implications that aren't worth approaching right now. A much more reasonable requirement is for us to retain ID photos for members who hold keys.


Add the following bullet point to the RFID Keys for Members By-Law:

  • Members requesting keys after 10/01/2021 must submit a head/shoulders photo suitable for identification purposes. The Secretary or Treasurer may rule that a provided picture does not meet these requirements at their discretion.
