LVL1 Quickstart

  • Dues paying Members / Founding Members
    • Voting Rights (direction and conflict resolution)
    • 24x7 access to space, you get a key
    • Access to all equipment owned, donated or loaned to LVL1
    • Ability to sponsor new members
  • Quickstart to LVL1 culture:
    • Fun is the prime directive. Keep things fun.
      • All people like to be around things that are fun.
      • All people tend to avoid things and events that are not fun.
      • Therefore the best way to keep attendance and occupancy up is to keep things fun.
    • Fair Warning: Using the collective 'we' can quickly get you deputized.
      • This is meant to be a playful way of avoiding 'diffusion of responsibility'. Sometimes when people say "We should _________!", what they really mean is "Someone besides myself should _________!"
      • Being deputized doesn't mean you have to do it yourself. But, it does mean you should lead the charge, find people to help you, and cajole them as necessary (free beer or home-baked cookies) to make it happen.
    • When scheduling something; pick an arbitrary date to start negotiations, thereby avoiding arbitrary non-starting negotiations.
      • Sometimes the hardest part of organizing is finding the 'best' time to do it.
      • There is never a 'best time' that works for everyone.
      • Once a date is set, everything else quickly falls into place.
    • The less rules the better. Don't try to solve problems we don't have.
      • We rely on a culture of openness, friendliness and mutual respect.
      • If you have a conflict with some aspect of the space or a member, we expect you to try and resolve it with the member on a personal level first. If that is not achievable, then find a Director to help resolve the conflict. Rule-making is a last resort approach for conflict resolution.
    • Be excellent to each other.
