Carwyn Nelson: do we have any projections for GZ for the current financial projections? Treasurer – currently John is working on this to get an outcome. This answer will be published on the website and all members will be updated through an email.

Chairman: we have been able to set up access to PluralSite (online learning platform for tech etc). If any member wants access it is available to all members they are more than welcome.

Chairman: if any member wants to learn more about the technical side of things and wants a straightforward server Geek.Zone can support them. Enables users to have a ‘starter’ website. Progress has been made, and more opportunities have been made available to members.

Secretary: creating a Christmas party, going to create a poll to see what people want to do. Everyone can take a picture of a Christmassy piece of clothing so then it can be posted on the website and/or social media.

Conclusion – 19:44.

Chairman: thanks everyone for such a successful year and thank you to everyone who is part of Geek.Zone, you make it awesome!
