3. Membership Details and Access
The Hivery’s membership includes access to The Hivery workspace specific times per
week, depending on your membership level. You can choose any days per week
(weekdays only), and you don’t need to reserve them in advance, with the number of
weeks driven by membership level.
The Hivery may be bustling with people, and some days, it may be quiet. You will
always be guaranteed a seat at The Hivery, but not necessarily a desk, and not
necessarily your favorite desk. We are continuing to add workspaces so that as The
Hivery grows, we can continue our commitment to a creative, collaborative space for
women. Workdays are non-transferrable. In other words, if you don’t use The Hivery
one week, you can’t transfer your workdays to the following week. We maintain that
rule so that we’re always able to operate at a capacity that is comfortable and
productive for all.
Members are required to give The Hivery 30-day notice if they intend to cancel their
membership. Note that this 30-day notice is not granted in the case of unkind or illegal behavior as stated in the Termination Section 6.
We will do our best to notify members of changes to the Rules and this agreement. We
will strive to keep an up-to- date copy of this agreement on The Hivery’s website.
Monthly membership fees are due on the 1st of the month. You will need to submit a
credit card so that you can be entered in our recurring payment system. Going forward
you will be charged your monthly membership fees on the 1st of every month.
