Becoming a member

So, you want to be a FamiLAB Member? Awesome! We love adding new people to our community. We have a membership process that allows you to get to know us, and us to get to know you before you start paying membership dues.

To become a member, essentially each applicant has to go through a very easy screening process, in which we invite you to come out to the space, come to classes, events, etc, and get to know people. During this time, you can “officially” announce your intentions to become a member by turning in your membership packet at a monthly meeting (3rd Tuesday of every month) and introducing yourself to the members present. You’ll still be allowed and encouraged to be at the space –  and then at the next monthly meeting, we’ll take an official vote, at which point you can become a full member with keycard access and all the other benefits that come with it.

Below is everything you need to get this process rolling!
