The London Hackspace AGM is this Wednesday 27th November. there is a mailing list thread discussing a resolution:

"that the minimum membership fee is increased from £5 to £10."

I suggested creating this page to help resist this resolution by getting an idea of how many people felt strongly about this. I imagined people would just put their names down, no requirement to put why you oppose (probably a better way of doing this (a list of reasons on the wiki?) on here or the mailing list.


Attendance

Definitely Going

Willing to Take a proxy vote

Here is a guide to proxy voting. But in *my* opinion I don't think its necessary.

Reluctant to attend


Unable to attend

  • I, Heather Sullivan, am very much opposed to the rise in prices in the current economic situation. The price rise will not magically make "bad" members go away and will possibly make "good" members go away instead.
  • I, Seyi Ogunyemi, am also opposed. I only stop by about once a year as I don't live close-by. While I'm currently happy to support the space, an increase would make that untenable.
  • I can see arguments for & against changing what attending members pay, but I'm most concerned that we might lose a lot of non-attending members, who are actually only supporting without using any resources. I think we stand to lose more than we gain.--Artag (talk) 10:43, 26 November 2013 (UTC)
