   [ VOTE ] Issues with non-payment of Membership Dues and steps to deal with that (Martin) -  

- Publish names are in bad standing of members who are on probation in the Website and in the front room? - Does pass with 15 out of 26 - Increase non-autopay to a higher amount (like $75) in 90 days, grandfathering in then current members into whatever plan they are on. - Does pass with 17 out 26

The following is voted on as an omnibus: Passes by 22 out of 26

       Late payment, without notification or excuse should result in a late payment fee of $10
       Second late payment within 12 months puts you on probation which can be remedied by going on auto-pay or quarterly pre-pay
       If you have 3 non-payments or late payments in 12 months, you must plead your case to the Board to reinstate, and reapply for membership 
   [VOTE] Re-allocate funds saved for laser cutter (~$5k) to the move (Martin, Marshall) - Passes by 25 out of 26
