Group process and organization
Things tend to happen slowly; for example, putting off budget discussion for months, not implementing regular equipment trainings
Lacking Report-backs on agreed decisions, ensuring follow-through
- Regular (monthly) financial reports to keep members informed about the state of the organization.
- Implementing equipment trainings (designated time? integrate with weekly meeting?)
- update patxu OS
- try Pluraleyes
- fix printer??
- Liz: sign lease, send to Jenny
