Trustees

From Nottinghack Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Hackspace is run by volunteers. A board of seven trustees give some of their spare time to ensure the space continues to run.

Just because a trustee seems to have an interest in a particular area, please don't assume that means you can't do things. Trustees are first and foremost members, and any work or space-wide projects that they take part in they do so as members.

You can always contact the entirety of the current board by emailing trustees@nottinghack.org.uk.

The trustees are making an effort to ensure that the membership as a whole has a better understanding of what we do on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. A round up of this information will be available in the newsletter, and updated as regularly as possible (daily usually, at a minimum weekly) on the wiki, here!

To contact an individual trustee, use their email from the table below.

Trustee since: 2015

I originally joined Nottinghack as a student in 2012. Since then it's helped me learn a multitude of skills, from foamcraft to lasercutting, 3D printing to lathing. Before becoming a Trustee I was a part of several teams: Laser, Membership, Craft, Snackspace, and I definitely see my role as Trustee as continuing to be helpful and provide guidance to members. I'd love to see the Hackspace expand it's visibility outside our usual events, and start showing others just how awesome we are and the kinds of crazy contraptions we make. All of this while being elbow deep in lasercut foam props of course.

Trustee since: 2011

As a founding member of NottingHack, I've always been involved in helping the space grow. As a trustee, I continue to help the space by keeping a close eye on the financial aspect, tracking what we have on hand, the current project commitments, as well as long-term budget predictions. These days I spend most of my time at the space working on infrastructure projects such as working on Gatekeeper, the system that operates the front door, to restoring the Bridgeport mill, to improving the metal-working area.
