Maker Space Membership Update – the Paperwork

Paperwork, paperwork, paperwork. We’re making progress, but not there yet.
The good news is that a lot of the heavy lifting is pretty much done – formal incorporation as a non-profit; liability insurance; formal board (required for non-profits), finding a space and getting that agreement in place.
Membership has its privileges… and problems.
Pre-announcing membership fees and models is just not smart until we have all the details in place. We’re making progress, with mandatory things like codes of conduct and liability waivers – you know, those things to prevent us from getting sued.
We’re fortunate to have other maker spaces leading the way and providing us great examples.
Stay tuned. We want to have everything in place by Jan 1 (yes, 2016) – with a deal for people participating during December.
