Our Mission: Should We Choose to Accept it?
So I went looking for the Kamloops Makerspace mission statement on the forum, and all I could find was this post. But the mission statement that is in our by-laws, which I believe is the official version, is a bit different. From the bylaws on github:
The purposes of the society are:
To provide a physical space where makers, hobbyists, inventors, artists, engineers, and other innovative people from all walks of life, can come together and share ideas, knowledge, equipment, and opinions in a collaborative and creative atmosphere
To organize and host workshops and events focused on teaching specific or broad skills related to tinkering, using tools, and making things to members and the community
To provide related services and tools for fostering creativity and progress in the arts, science, and technology as determined by the members
Personally, I really, really like the mission statement, and it has inspired me to put a lot of work into the space. I think that while we are developing policy around the space, this should be a primary consideration.
Personally, I would be happy if each policy that space approved had the mission statement printed at the top, and clearly explained how the policy intended to accomplish those goals.
