Banning Pigeon OR Jake's amendement that Pigon stay away from Noisebridge for 2 months

  2. Pigon will leave when asked to leave
  3. Pigon will not store supplies at Noisebridge

Tom offers to mediate conflict when Pigon's behavior warrents being asked to leave the space.

Proposal to create an Associate Member role and limit access to Noisebridge 24/7 to Member, Associate Member and thoes hosted by M and AM

A new Tier of Membership to Noisebridge shall exist, called Associate
Member.  People can become Associate Members through the normal
membership process.  Associate Members are not required to contribute to
Noisebridge financially, only to "contribute regularly" to Noisebridge.
Associate Members, while present, can host non-members in the space just
like Full Members.  But Associate Members cannot block consensus like
Also the policy of Noisebridge as a space open only to Members and their
guests shall be changed to 24 hours a day instead of 23:00 to 10:00.
This means that at any time, a person who is without a live sponsor in
the space can be told that if they cannot find a new live sponsor
promptly they should pack up and come back another time, perhaps Tuesday


  1. Access to Noisebridge off the plane (first time coming)
  2. Classes/Meetings/Planned Hacking
  3. Two-tiered membership, pay + access + block and contribute time + access
  4. Blocking Associate Member status could be abused
  5. Creates Noisebridge middleclass, keep it simple
  6. File paperwork and pass consensus to access Noisebridge


  1. Create delay before 24/7 policy goes into effect
  2. Eliminate dues requirement from Member (so as to address #3 above)
  3. Only members can sponsor guests

De-membership consensus (-2)


Proposals for next week

(Add any new items for consensus to the Current Consensus Items page.)

=JC Proposes that Noisebridge install Schlag locks on the inner door
