This isn't your everyday Terms of Service.
We're people with a purpose. Please read this thoroughly and keep it. It will answer most of your questions.
Cohere, LLC: The Members are the people, coworkers, groups and community. The Space is the building located at 418 South Howes.
We are a gathering of people finding a way to work better together, focusing on participation, helpfulness and friendship.
The members of Cohere share a fundamental desire to live and work flexibly, be social, help one another and welcome everyone into the community.
How to BElong to Our Community:
BE yearning for interaction.
BE willing to introduce yourself, make friends and help.
BE ready to participate in impromptu and planned events.
BE eager to help everyone feel proud of our space and the people in it.
BE prepared for abundance.
Your Responsibilities (Cohere RULES! ;)
Cohere is quite different from your average working environment. We're not a serviced or fully staffed office, and the following things help us keep our prices accessible. In order to keep things ticking nicely, here are some essentials we ask everyone to be mindful of when using the space.
Participation is an extreme sport. You break or lose it, you replace it.
Bring problems with plumbing, electrical, HVAC, roof, flooding, broken keypads, natural disasters, etc. to the attention of a staff member (Angel or another Community Cultivator).
When you need a bookable resource, book it on Cobot rather than just popping in.
Conduct: Cohere is a safe space for people of any race, gender, sexual orientation or religion. Any member who acts or speaks in a way that impedes the safety of any other member will be educated and/or asked to leave our community. It is your responsibility to bring issues to the attention of staff if talking directly with the person is not feasible for safety reasons.
Never give out Cohere key codes to anyone.
Learn how to reset the Comcast router and use this as a first defense against an internet outage.
Your credit card is charged automatically on your membership renewal date. Make changes to your membershhip prior to your renewal date. We can not issue refunds.
Engage in meaningful greetings. Pop in and out of all areas and offices to connect with one another.
Equipment and professional liability is your own responsibility (our insurance can’t cover it). Ask your insurance provider for "renter’s insurance."
Cleaning up after yourself, washing your dishes and tidying up is everyone’s responsibility. We work together to maintain a space we feel proud of.
Leave the spaces as you found them, or in better shape. (This includes cleaning up after your guests.)
Be responsible and respectful with your internet usage. No bit-torrent, porn or illegal activities. Respect other people’s privacy, confidentiality, safety, property and data. If the law comes looking for you, we will give you up immediately.
The last member out of each space is responsible for closing windows, shutting off lights and firmly closing all keypad-equipped doors.
Parking permits are available to purchase and allow you to compete for our 14 spaces. Enforced M-F 7a-6p. A bike rack is located in front of the building. Emergency bike parking (forgot your lock, rack is full) is on the raised outdoor patio only.
If you can’t use all of your allotted coworking days in a week, those days can be used within your invoice month but do not carry over to the next month.
Dogs are not allowed with the exception of a couple pups who are grandpuppered in.
Children over the age of 12 are allowed with their parent if space allows. It is preferred that you reserve a conference room when you need to bring your family with you.
Cohere members will usually sign for other members’ packages, but it isn’t guaranteed. Plan accordingly.
