Non Member Rights

You dont have to be a member at TAMI. Non-members enjoy all the rights of members, except:

1. A key. With a few exceptions, only members get the key of the space, and may stay there alone.

2. Voting rights.

TAMI Is ...

A Do-ocracy

That means whoever's doing something is the person who decides how it gets done. If you want to do something, you can basically Just Fucking Do It.

An organization of individuals doing their own thing

TAMI doesn't do anything besides pay the bills. Any group projects, building/planning new space facilities, etc. all gets done because an ordinary member thought it was important, got people excited about it, and followed through.

Entirely run by volunteers

Our Board of Directors, Area Hosts, people offering training on the equipment, and anyone who looks like they're doing anything remotely official are all volunteers. That means if you ask them nicely for something they'll probably help you, but you should do what you can to make their job easier.
