Proposed structure Draft v0.2

Interest groups are semi-autonomous groups of hackerpace members
They exist to promote and organize a trade, craft, art, science, or event
Most groups claim a part of the space and self-organize within their domain.

All groups should have:

  • A Lead or Leads (as point of contact and organizer)
  • A mailing list (For discussion/contact)
  • Meeting times (at least one a month)

Examples include:EG: DiY bio, Electronics, Woodworking, Software, Crafts Fair
See the: Interest Group Template for more

Interest groups may be allocated resources such as:

  • Recurring or long-term use of space
  • Recurring or one-time budgets
  • Hosted Tools and Hackerspace property

Unlike Committees, which are organized by the directorship in order to serve the membership as a whole and execute delegated duties, Interest Groups (AKA Special Interest Groups) are organized by members in order to coordinate and serve their own needs.
