The next Meeting of the Meetings is happening on Sunday, September 25th at 7:00pm. Please be there on time. The meeting should only last one hour.
It’s important for your meeting to be represented so we can keep the schedule current, gather feedback from meetings, explain new policies, increase morale, and change the entry codes to ensure everyone's safety. Each home-group meeting should send one or two representatives. Attendance will be taken.
If no one from your group shows up, we will assume your meeting has dissolved, remove it from the website, and make the space available for a new group. All meeting representatives have been informed of this policy.
If you have questions about this meeting, please contact Bobby Hampton: 713-927-0478. Bobby is a member of the board of directors and fulfills the role of Meeting Liaison.
LOCKBOX + ENTRY. The lockbox code has been changed. If you are a homegroup representative who needs the access code, please contact Bobby (713-927-0478). Remember to enter through the backdoor whenever possible.
SMOKING. Do not smoke in front of the building. All smoking should take place out back. We are asking meetings to please police themselves. A picnic table and ash stations have been provided to encourage smoking in the back parking lot.
GUNS. Gun policy explained (none allowed, signage already provided). If someone has a gun, there is a firearm locker and key is provided. The owner of the firearm will hold the key during the meeting and put the key back in the locker when they retrieve their firearm after the meeting. If there are multiple firearms, place them all in the same locker and designate a key holder during your meeting.
ZOOM. The zoom password has been changed to 1Studio64. Host ID for meetings to kick out hackers is: 046898 Although there is a waiting room option, we don't implement it because every homegroup would have to designate a host for every meeting that takes place. This is unrealistic for many groups.
DOOR + ELECTRIC BILL. Please keep the door closed during meetings because our air conditioning is overworking and costs us lots of money. Our last electric bill was over $500. Be sure all the doors are locked before you leave.
SANITATION. Please wipe down chairs, trashes, door handles, etc. to keep the Studio clean. Please pick up trash after meeting — it appears some meetings have been leaving cups, wrappers, and napkins on the floor. Thank you in advance.
FUNDRAISERS. If you'd like to help with fundraisers, please contact Rachel (602-561-7688) and/or Daniel (623-666-0813). Thanxchrismukkah is coming up soon (yay!) and Daniel is forming a volunteer committee. Remember that bricks are always for sale for $100.
THANK YOU. The Sunday morning men's meeting (86ed) are the one's that donated picnic table out back. Acts of kindness like this help us keep a community spirit — give 'em a round of applause! If your homegroup would like to help out the Studio with a special gift or service, let us know and we'll make it happen.
LOCKBOX + ENTRY. Lockbox hardware and code has been changed. Please enter through the backdoor whenever possible.
SMOKING. Do not smoke in front of the building. All smoking should take place out back.
FUNDRAISING. Bricks are for sale for $100 each. If you donate $100, you can decorate or write your name on a brick. Studio164 T-shirts ($25) and stickers ($1) are for sale. To purchase items, contact a board member (or email us through this website).
AV + ZOOM. The AV system will be hardwired to avoid any connectivity and casting issues (to be completed by May 1). Do not unplug, undo, disconnect, or touch the system. The Studio is always willing to accept donations for tech upgrades. Zoom will never be off. The camera will always be on and the record feature will always be deactivated (applies to room A only; room B does not have cameras or Zoom).
POLICIES + PROCEDURES. Studio policies and guidelines are posted on large, yellow, laminated papers in Room A, Room B, and the lobby area.
7th TRADITION. If a meeting has $0 for donations, please fill out an envelope anyway and drop it even if it has $0 in it. This helps us know the meeting is still active.
CLEANING. The Studio will be cleaned twice per month by a professional cleaners, but this is not enough to keep the Studio looking fresh. Please clean up after your meeting (bathroom, trash cans, coffee area, wrappers off the floor, etc.).
TRASH. Please clean up after your meeting. Lock the dumpster after taking out the trash. The Studio has acquired multiple over-fill charges because neighbors dump their trash in our dumpster if it's not locked. If you cannot find the key to unlock/lock the dumpster, set your meeting's trash bags in the back parking lot up against the building wall. DO NOT put trash on top of the dumpster - this also causes the Studio to incur extra charges from the trash company.
