Various Income Suggestions

  • Free shirt with a new member sign up ( cost ~$20 )
  • More merchandise options like Hats, long sleeve shirts, hoodies, pins, patches, pens, lanyards, etc
  • Sell merchandise at more events like Comicon, Jimcon, secret handshake, etc.
    • This would be easier with things that aren't purely promotional

  • Partnerships with RRC, U of W, etc as a place for talks to happen that is off campus.
  • More corporate type / level donations

Ideas for the space itself

(Copied raw from Projects)

  • Lockers for members to lock up projects while they are away.
  • Carpool system for anyone who wants to participate.
  • A dropbox for having things shipped to, not everyone can be home to accept UPS deliveries.
  • Member / project pages on the website to show off what we can do.
  • A company credit card for members who don't have one to order parts online with.
  • Bicycle storage (rack or ??)
