How to Join
You can join by following the steps , which are, in short:
* The first step should be to check out the space. We have a public meeting every Tuesday at 8pm. Please You'll get a tour and if you join that night, it's a good time to get your ID checked. You could also come introduce yourselfby any event that’s open to the public. There are many: almost anything on the event calendar that isn’t a tool authorization.* You can start your apply for membership by starting recurring payments [ on the website]. From the home page, look for the "Join" menu item.* Find two board members or authorized membership admins to check your government-issued ID. To find them: sttend attend either a Tuesday open house (8 pm almost every Tuesday, except for a few holidays) or a [[New Member Orientation]]. Before your membership is official, two [[The Board|board members]] (or one of the non-board [[ID Checkers|authorized ID checkers]]) will need to check a government-issued photo ID. Either of these events is an appropriate place a good time for that. Once your ID has been verified, you'll get a door code and will be able to start getting authorized to use tools and equipment.If you can’t make it to an open house or an orientation there are still many times you can have your ID checked; to arrange a time send an email to * Once you've received your welcome email, you should go to [ our member site] and activate your userid/Active Directory account.

Sorry, no. Unfortunately we are '''not''' a job shop, fab lab or tool rental company. You're going to need some patience. We are 100% volunteer run. Likewise, no day passes, no corporate memberships shared between several people. Not a good fit for this kind of place.
* How do I get certified on authorized to use the laser cutter?
The laser cutter is our most popular tool. There may be an authorization session on the Events calendar, or one may be in the process of forming, usually based on a discussion on the Google Group mailing list. There are a few recommended authorizers for the laser; it is no longer a viral authorization process. There is no recurring regular schedule are more volunteer authorizers for laser cutter authorizationcutters than ever before; it is scheduling a demand-driven activity. If you can find 2 other people that are willing to schedule a session at the same time, your chances of getting an authorizer to agree to show up are much betterwon’t be hard.
== How Do do I Get Authorized get authorized on tools? ==
It depends. Start by looking for a wiki page for that tool, see if that tells you how. You can find a thing's wiki page by searching for it on the wiki, or by looking for an [ equipment label] on the thing that will tell you the URL to the thing's wiki page.
