**Community Guidelines **
Respect meeting space and policy (rooms, schedule, credits). Please utilize the member booking portal to find out the available times and dates for each meeting room. Not being conscientious of schedule times may negatively impact others. If a long and important meeting is in your week's calendar, please reserve a meeting room. Member Credit may not be resold, shared, or gifted. Monthly credits do not rollover.
Cleanliness is essential, but especially in coworking spaces. With coworkers sharing one big space, please ensure your temporary flex or permanent workstation is clean and tidy before you leave. Don't forget to toss your coffee cup and space napkins, either. Common Sense in the Common Space. As a general rule, treat the space like how you want your home to be treated. This means eating only in designated areas, brushing up on the visitor policy, not taking items that are not yours, screaming in the hallways act. While this should go without saying, avoid discriminator behavior and harassment toward your fellow members, it's their space too!
Please be mindful of other people's space. If you see someone wearing headphones or immured at work, don't distract them. This is an excellent opportunity to message your fellow coworking member on slack.
Contribute to your community.
Ready to contribute? Not with money but with YOU. While CREED63 becomes an ambassador for you as soon as you sign-up, we still strongly encourage our member to network, introduce yourself and what brings you to CREED.
