Weekly Meeting Agenda

Special Announcement

It is my unfortunate duty to inform you that Hive13 Leadership has voted to terminate the membership of Matt Ziegler due to a number of violations of our Membership Agreement. In short, Hive13 members are personally responsible for the safety and good behavior of guests. Matt allowed his unsupervised guests to steal not only a member’s personal property, but also Hive13’s property. An additional and important factor in the judgment of leadership was Matt’s lack of recognition of his own responsibility for the thefts. People make mistakes.Owning up to that is a critical part of preventing them from being repeated. This was an extremely difficult proceeding for Leadership, as we have not had to investigate thefts in our 14 years as an organization. We recognize that this was a complicated situation, and that, as Leadership, there were aspects of the proceedings that we could have handled differently. It is our goal to use this experience to craft better policy moving forward. I welcome any offline questions or comments that you may have as we navigate a better way to keep Hive13 a vibrant, creative and safe space for all of our Members (and Guests.)


  • We have a open "Cornerstone Corner" Member storage space available! Please contact John Clark if you would be interested in upgrading your storage.
  • Membership, please remember that when you bring a guest into the Hive, you are the one responsible for them for the duration of your time in the Hive. They are required to completely fill out a liability waiver, and we expect you to honor the Membership Agreement that you signed that states that you, the Member, will remain with your guest, your guest is not permitted to use any certification-only equipment, and that they will leave the Hive when you leave.
    • Because making is better together, Hive13 welcomes your well-behaved children and guests.
      • Members must assure all guests to Hive13, including minor children have a signed Liability Waiver.
      • Members will take care to assure the safety and good behavior of guests.
      • Only Members may operate tools requiring certification. Some tools are off limits to anyone under 18
      • Members must accompany guests at all times. When you leave your guests leave.
  • The purge is coming! Please do not put anything in the Dungeon, and if you currently have items stored in the Dungeon - PLEASE REMOVE
  • This is a shared space, managed by volunteers. Please clean up after yourselves and if you are unsure how to do something, please ask! There have been far, far too many tools damaged lately, and this can be avoided by speaking up.
  • If something breaks, please email broken@hive13.org and notify the associated warden on Slack!
  • Leadership has recently updated our Commercial Use Policy Please look it over and feel free to reach out to Leadership with any questions.

Welcome Guests!
