The first official meeting of the year was a great one! A big thank you to all those who attended the meeting. Your ideas and suggestions are greatly appreciated and we look forward to the new year with enthusiasm. We have a lot to do yet to get this year started but we will keep you updated with changes as they happen. Currently on the agenda is the election of a New President to the board. We have some great nominations and will be holding an election in a couple weeks. We are also working on dates for open houses. Dates may change so make sure to keep checking our MEETUP page for the most accurate information.

We will also be considering making changes to the membership structure, so if you have considered being a member in the past, check back soon to see what we have planned. With the economic times we live in we want to make sure Makelab Charleston is economically viable for all members. There is so much to be gained from the collaborative enviroment that is Makelab that we want to be able to share it with as many people as possible and sometimes that means making it financially affordable as well. So stay tuned for more updates and feel free to contact us anytime for more information.
