Woohoo yippe hooray! Makervillage is technically (but not officially) open to Members.
What does that mean exactly?
It means the building isn’t perfect and life isn’t perfect, but the entire space is open to members who pre-paid via the crowdfunding campaign, and we are also accepting new members on all levels.
Are you an existing member? Here’s what you need to know.
You’ll need to sign a membership agreement.
Don’t worry. It’s quick and easy. Click right here to fill it out. Takes 3 minutes.
The hours are 9am to 5pm, Monday through Friday.
Eventually. Eventually. Eventually this may change or be more relaxed. We’ll be hosting various events, programs, meetings, etc. beginning at 5pm on weekdays, so the general rule of thumb right now is that we are 100% member’s only from 9-5 M-F.
Makervillage is a work in progress.
We’re not venture-backed, we’re a community-service oriented non-profit. As such, you need to know that renovating and construction is an ongoing process. That means…
- there may be a few days where we have to close in the coming months
- it might be a bit messy in here on some days
- we’re not 100% furnished with tons of chairs, desks, couches, etc. yet
- all the wonderful and cool things we want to do with this space are going to happen over time.
Our security and access app is not functional yet.
We’re in the process of setting up a sweet smartphone app that will control and manage access for all our members. It will hopefully be 100% ready to use in the next few weeks.
However, to get in the building right now, here’s what you’re going to do.
Park in the back parking lot, and enter through the back-side door. That’s it.
Note: the alarm system and locks ARE functional. Don’t try to break in after hours. The cops will show up 🙂
If you pre-paid for membership…
Startups: Your prepaid time started on January 1, 2017. (You should’ve received notification in December 2016)
Coworkers: Your prepaid time will start on February 1, 2017.
We have heat, coffee, and super-fast Wi-Fi
Therefore, we are open to members as of this very second.
- Come in and fill out the membership agreement
- Be patient as we install the security systems and continue updating the building
- Come in and work, meet someone new, and build cool stuff!
