5. Member issues:
1. Bert Rabbe:
Proposal to suspend Multicam SIG and fold Multicam maintenance and support into the Woodshop Committee effective Oct 1, 2019.

Define purchase procedures for Molza Tools sourced end mills

Define purchase procedures for equipment repair parts and to what extent these delayed the parts required to fix the Powermatic Drill Press and Powermatic Drum Sander

Define plan to communicate and post operational instructions for the Felder Dust Collector including sawdust disposal

Proposal: In view of the ongoing delay and indeterminate expansion schedule, request BoD approval to install the available Felder ductwork in the current Woodshop in order to capture more of the dust being generated. Operating with the existing ductwork has yielded cleaner air but dirtier floors as the fine dust is being more effectively captured and the larger material is left behind. This will benefit both Woodshop users and DMS as a whole in that Woodshop curb appeal will be enhanced and help recruitment efforts.

Clarify current status of AC issues and initiatives in progress.

Clarify the future training program modifications dependent on installation of the RFID system, the current status of the Infrastructure Group design, and the timing of installation as it is currently defined.

2. Additional member concerns:
