All in favor, Dave abstained
Anna: The con needs a printer.
When Anna was running ops she brought her own, and people have been willing to bring their personal printers.
Toner might be an issue in the storage cube
Amy asks – does it need to be color or is black and white good enough?
Brian: we had a color laser of Brian’s we used to use but the toner was very expensive.
We have had printers where ink did dry out over time.
Brian doesn’t think we NEED a scanner or color, but it’d be nice.
If a laserjet is going to dry out over the year, buying new color & b&W toner every year will be expensive.
Anna and Dave: We have promised to print for the art this year, so we need color
Brian has a Phaser printer but getting new ink for it every year is going to be somewhere around $400 and has to be specialty ordered
Amy has something at work that has the solid ink but not sure how it would hold up in the summer heat.
Anna: Could we pull the toner out and store it in someone’s home instead of the storage unit? Then it wouldn’t be subject to the heat extremes
Amy: aasfa keeps it’s files at Brian’s, we could store the toner/ink in the file cabinet with our files
Amy also suggests we look into renting a good printer for the weekend and see what that costs
John has a black and white printer he would be willing to donate.
Amy will look into pricing.
Does the AV company Nuri is working with rent printers?
Does the hotel have a printer we can use? – Brian will look into this
Discussion about whether or not Ops absolutely NEEDS a printer.
Dave: suggests to table that discussion once we have pricing information for various options.
Printers/projectors have consumables and can’t be scared up at a moment’s notice – if a reg laptop dies, someone’s likely to have a laptop
projectors are neccesary – especially with science programming.
Next meeting to be scheduled
Meeting called to close at 736 by brian seconded by angie, passed unanimously.
