Below is a brainstorm of ideas regarding the ins and outs of Sudo Room membership. These items are not necessarily officially endorsed by Sudo Room, but are kept for their historicity and as a reference guide when deciding upon future membership guidelines.

Do we have it?

  • Should "member" be the term used? What about participant/ supporter/ Sudo-Agent? (Patrik: we can call them whatever we want internally, but for the elevator pitch we should refer to them as "members", because that is what people understand.)

Does it confer special privileges?

  • making decisions
  • keys to space
  • ability to reserve facilities
  • access to tools/equipment?
  • Discount for classes or other goods/services
  • Maybe a substantive membership benefit would be that members get to invite speakers & have classes at the space without having to get larger group approval
    • would anyone pay for that privilege?
  • No material benefits to membership - members donate because they value the existence of the space and believe in its continued existence.
  • t shirts
  • (???)
  • (???)

Are there expectations of members? What are their responsibilities?

  • do work for the space/In-kind donation? What would the list of acceptable trades be?
    • existing services for evaluating trades include timebank and ourvolts.
  • join a sudo group
  • serve on council to help make decisions
  • pay dues or fees? (perhaps $50-$100/mo, with sliding scale available for starving students / unemployed)
  • teach workshops or skillshares
  • (???)
  • (???)

How do you become a member?

  • complete application process
  • consensus or vote of membership
  • fulfilling work or dues requirement
  • (???)
  • (???)

What are the levels of engagement and expectations members should adhere to? What are the benefits of said engagement and expectations?
