Getting authorized on tools can be tough. Sometimes it's hard for new members to figure out how to get authorized, sometimes classes fill up in hours, sometimes classes aren't scheduled regularly. We want to fix that. The Board has created the following Volunteer Positions. We need a few members to step up and offer their time to get people authorized.

Responsibilities and Incentives

  • Each Authorizer will be required to hold regularly scheduled office hours (the Board is recommending two, two hour sessions each month as a good starting place) to offer authorizations, assistance with tools, or anything else in their assigned areas.
  • Authorizers will receive either a free Starving Hacker membership or $40/month off of a full membership.
