  4. Preferences for future monthly meetings:
    • Monthly in-person (w/ zoom option) is something desired by many
    • In-person 4x per year (zoom other months), some supported the idea, other thought it may be confusing
    • Other ideas included meeting at a new location at the Compton Airport front office
  5. Other items addressed by the Executive Council this month:
    • Looking into society workshop/workspace at the Compton airport
    • Addition of more/semi-permanent high power launch pads
