Kelly and Christine did some Coworking at Mind Unwind all morning. For lunch time Stefan and Deborah joined and we started our meetup. We are working on a lease agreement with a great space on California Ave. We showed some pictures to everyone at the meetup 2 weeks ago. We recapped last weeks meeting and we tried to work out some more details that came up over the last few weeks.
We talked about some amenities that would most likely be expected and our plans to offer some flexibility in time use. Kelly thought that would be very well appreciated.
A set of general rules will come with the Member Agreement legally connecting our Liability Insurance and Rental Agreement.
Our guidelines for the space would be "Use and treat respectfully!", "Don't be a d*ck!" and "You are in charge of your own experience!".
We also would like to encourage the Coworking core values:
Collaboration - Openness - Community - Accessibility - Sustainability.
Kelly gave us some great input to a lot of questions we had. Kelly: "No!", "No!" and "No!"
"No" to most of the fancy stuff we thought we have to provide for everyone's satisfaction, but we might start without some of those and will see and wait and hope our great community will shape and mold all the details in place.
We want to participate in the West Seattle Art Walk, continue with our free Coworking Meetups, but scale them back from weekly to bi-weekly. We want to have a regular get together for all members once a month. Workshops led by members and guest speakers invited by members.
We want to create a space to meet, work, collaborate, learn and have fun!
