We also need some signs…
From the sounds of it this needs a new name, rather than open evening its more like a new members evening?
It’s a mix – some people understandably want to see the Space before signing up
Was nice today have guests again!
It’s Open Evening* again this Wednesday and we need a host or two
*semi-Open Evening – we’re not advertising these publicly yet, so people turning up are mainly from our ‘membership mailing list’, and have either joined recently or are considering it and coming down to visit first
Thanks to @platinumnqueen22 for stepping up to the open evening challenge, and doing a bunch of cleaning/tidying up – everyone should emulate this fine figure of a member!
We need you!
With the incoming stream of lovely new members we’re reinstating Open Evenings – a little under the radar at first: they’re being publicised to anyone who signed up to our membership mailing list over the months since we closed memberships
This means most people turning up will have been offered a membership place, although we expect some passing trade (if this happens make sure to get email addresses from those interested to join)
It also means we need members to host open evenings – it’s actually fun, and you get to show off our fantastic Space
What can you do to make this all work?
- host or co-host an open evening, sign-up here, the hosting guide is here
- make sure the Space looks good if your using it on open evening
- if you’re a tech, then leave out a sample of what can be done in your area – this makes the hosts job much easier: the difference between explaining what a laser cutter does, and showing a laser cut box, for example!
@peter_hellyer is Hosting this Wednesday – this is an ideal opportunity to learn the ropes at his side if you’ve never hosted before!
We’ve planned laser induction for tommorow before the open evenings were announced…Hope it’s okay.
Not a problem – any spaces left? Can’t see it on Discourse, and new members have been asking
It’s showing on the booking calender.
I see that, it’s just not showing as an induction for anyone who’s set alerts
Folks – we’d love some more members to head over and pick a free date they can host…the Rota is here, in particular we need someone for this Wednesday
Sorry, had to change my date to the 16th. Forgot previous monthly Tooting Labour executive committee is on that night.
I have a friend who’s interested in joining the makerspace. Does he have to join the membership mailing list or can he come down to the semi-open evening on the 16th and join after that? Or would that be jumping the queue? Thanks
There’s no real queue, but we’re working through the mailing list at the moment, so that’s his best bet. When the mailing list is spent we’ll see where we are
Thanks Dermot, I’ll let my friend know
Thanks to @Edd for donning the Open Evening lanyard tonight!
Don’t mention brexfast…
I’m on next Wednesday night.
