The Plenum is a regular meeting of all people involved with the space to talk about things and decide stuff. If you have any topics to add, go right ahead! Please sign your points with your name (by adding a "--~~~~" after your text).

After the Plenum, please follow the tasks outlined in Cycling the Plenum to archive the discussion.


  • The Plenum is an institution to decide what the space should look like, physically and in other ways, such as virtually.
  • Things concerning the space should be discussed at a plenum.
  • Everyone on-site can participate in that process, member or otherwise.
  • Everyone can lead a plenum; no need for board members to do that.
  • Topics should ideally be announced on the Plenum wiki page beforehand.
  • The Plenum should be held in a language that everyone participating understands.
  • Scheduling: Second Thursday of the month at 8 pm and the last Sunday after the cleanup (which starts at 11 am)
  • Plenums should be no longer than 90 minutes.

Next Plenum: Sunday, April 30th after the cleanup (which starts at 11 am)

This is a great way to participate in the Munich Maker Lab e.V. and contributing time helps keeping our space in a good shape. You can find all information about the scope of the available jobs on MiniJobs.

Things to Buy

  • The vending machine needed a 150 EUR repair. The coin changer's cash cassette was broken because the clamps became brittle. This replaced the cash cassette with a saner one for our config (2€, 1€, 50c and 10c). The replacement costs 150€. --ⓒ②② (🅃🄰🄻🄺) 12:30, 20 April 2023 (CEST)
    • Approved unanimously
    • Note: It was not quite clear if this cost is for multiple parts or just the casset, please provide some clearing comments.
  • 199€ for the spring cleanup (like last year) for cleaning supplies + food + drinks! --ⓒ②② (🅃🄰🄻🄺) 17:57, 20 April 2023 (CEST)
