Our network is important. We vote new members in. It’s not a hard process!
Please come to our “Open House” on any Tuesday from 7 PM to 10 PM. Get to know some of our members and share your interesting projects. The members vote on new member applications every Tuesday, so be sure to introduce yourself.
Fill out an application. The Secretary will follow up with an email to let you know you are on the ballot.
Members will vote on the application the upcoming Tuesday meeting. Its helpful to attend that meeting so member can get to know you, but not required.
If your application is accepted by the members, congratulations! Next we require your first and last month dues; Students pay $25 a month, so a total of $50, regular members pay $35 a month, so a total of $70. You can bring a check, cash or sign up for automatic stripe credit card payment with a board member during the Tuesday night meeting.
Once dues are paid, you’ll get your swipe cards and keys.
