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: Thursday, Feb 8th at 8pm

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.

Stuff from the past

What was discussed at the last Plenum? What's the current status of those things? 20240111 Plenum

Anything you don't feel comfortable with within the space? What would you like to change or to be changed?

Problems with member lending tools. Unfortunately, a member has decided to take the router home without letting anyone know which caused a) another member not to be able to use it b) me to search for it for about 20 minutes. There were various problems with the member before, especially a lack of understanding that we are a) not a tool rental and b) that everyone working at the space is a volunteer. I have therefore asked the member to not take anything from the workshop anymore (as I am currently taking care of it) and also informed the board of members of my ask. I hope that this works for everyone, as I think a general rule in terms of "you can't lend anything" won't help anyone here. --ⓒ②② (🅃🄰🄻🄺) 18:36, 27 January 2024 (CET)

  • We agree to keep it like this for now and be open to a request for change at a next plenum (or directly to the bord of members)

Things for Newsletter, Social Media & Website News

Introduce Loomio poll

Things to Buy

  • Bring the remaining blade for the bosch TKS to the sharpening service. Unfortunately, I couldn't find what we paid last time, so let's put down 50€ for now, even though I think it was in the realm of 20€. --ⓒ②② (🅃🄰🄻🄺) 18:43, 27 January 2024 (CET)
