What You Are Paying For
Access to the Space
Being a Full Member of Hive13 provides 24-hour access to an excellent working facility. Contributing Members and guests can come in when the space has been unlocked by a Full Member. Full Members receive a PIN number to the keypads our doors.
Access to the extensive skill set and resources of the Hive13 members
Hive13 members have a wide range of interests, hobbies, and professions - from server administration to welding to complex organic biochemistry. As a Member you will be able to learn from us, as well as have the opportunity to teach in return.
Access to public tools, services, and classes
The space is maintained as a group workshop, and as such there will be access to shared tools that members will provide. As the Hive13 organization gets established, we will be purchasing tools for the group to use that most people could not afford alone - as of July 6th, we are planning to purchase a rapid prototyping system as one of our first group purchases.
Voting rights - Members have the right to vote on any issues brought to the membership, which include electing the Board, electing Officers, and most major decisions governing the organization.
Members get a Hive13 Account which grants you an @Hive13.org email address and access to all other internet services.
Obey the Rules
All members are required to abide by the Bylaws and the Rules of the Space. The Bylaws are what governs the official decision making processes and such for the corporation. The Rules of the Space are more ad hoc and designed to keep the physical space running smoothly. These are for the most part common sense - don't destroy space property, play well with others and with others' tools, and abide by any set noise curfews.
We are a community of humans. This is a physical place filled with real people who are serious about working, learning, and having fun. We are easy to get along with; you should be too.
Every member is responsible for helping to maintain the space and for contributing to the group as a whole. Help out with projects when you're able to do so, assist with maintaining or cleaning the space, teach classes, or whatever you can do.
The Hive is located in a building that is shared with other businesses and residential units. There will be posted noise restrictions and those MUST be obeyed.
Keep Current on Membership Fees
The Membership Fees are there to keep the space open for the enjoyment of all. You are expected to keep current on the Fees.
If a member is determined to be disruptive to the group via a group vote, their membership may be terminated. All member privileges and access rights will be revoked, and any recurring monthly membership subscription will also be terminated. No refunds will be given for membership time unused due to involuntary termination.
