If you want to join PS1 as a member, there's a bit on the main web site about that:

Big bullet points

  • You must start paying dues at either the full rate of $70 per month or the Starving Hacker rate at $40 per month.
  • We used to use PayPal, but not anymore. Phased out starting in 2018. Some members may still be paying with PayPal, but it isn't accepted for new memberships anymore.
  • Now (2018+) PS1 uses a Wild Apricot-driven member management system with credit or debit card recurring payments managed (at the moment) with Stripe payment processing.
  • You must sign a liability waiver.
  • You must have a government-issued ID card checked by 2 authorized members: either board members or one of the non-board authorized ID checkers. Best bet is to show up at a Tuesday night meeting at 8 for a tour and to see plenty of authorized ID-checking members.
  • If you can't make it on a Tuesday night, your next-best steps are either to email or just show up to events that are open to the public and chance finding one or two admins there. The odds are not so bad.
  • The next-most-certain time to find 2 ID checkers is the Orientation held the third Sunday of the month at 4 pm.
  • You agree to follow our bylaws, membership agreement, and policies. You must support the mission of PS1 and agree to the requirements of the Anti-Harassment Policy and the Membership Agreement.
