How to Join Hive13

Show up!

If you want to join Hive13, the first step is to simply show up! (Find Us)  The Tuesday night meetings are open for all to attend and there will always be people there willing to show you around and tell you what’s going on.  Members usually start rolling in after working hours, and are generally working on projects and/or are open to introductions and general conversation before the start of the 7:30pm meeting.  We usually have officer reports on the first Tuesday of the month, and a guest speaker on the second Tuesday of the month.

Sign our Liability Waiver Form

Every member must sign a standard Release of Liability form saying you won’t hold the Space liable if you injure yourself or damage your property while working within the space or with tools and equipment provided by the space.
