  • Group-use policy (vote to approve)
A keyed-member in good standing may host a private meeting/event at the MakeICT makerspace as long as they are not charging a fee. If any rooms or resources are to be held or if the number of non-member guests exceeds the Guest Policy allowance, a reservation must be submitted and approved 14 days in advanced. The host member is responsible/liable for activities of their guests, and all guests must follow official guest policies. There is no fee for this resource to our members, but a donation is suggested to offset facility costs.
