Hive 76 is run as a cooperative of makers/hakcers/DiY-ers. With membership comes both the benefits, and the responsibility for being a part of the group.

Members are asked to :

  • Monthly dedicate 4+ hours to a Hive76 project
  • Pay  dues as described below (or if a student, apply to discuss discounts for extra hours)
  • Have attended at least 3 of the last 4 meetings.

Officers are elected by members every 6 months. Projects are selected by members.

Hive 76 Membership Levels:

  1. Core Membership: $100/Month, Unlimited 24 hour access, Core members are also expected to contribute at least 4 hours a month working space projects/improvements.
  2. Basic Membership:$50/month, Self-limited 24 hour access, Basic members estimate they will not be at the space more than 2 or 3 nights a week. They defer to Core members as needed on equiptment, and they are also expected to contribute 4 hours a month working space projects/improvements.
  3. Lite membership:$15/month, Lite members are always welcome to stop by while other members are around, but don’t get keys and can’t be in the space alone.

    Hi guys,

    I read about you in the WSJ (Wall Street Journal) article today. I have looked around the site and have decided that I am interested in joining Hive76. I live two to two and a half hours from Philly. I am going to Harrisburg Area Community College, and am majoring in Computer Information Systems. I have had some bumps along the way, but am generally enjoying being a Geek in Training (GIT). As I am a GIT, I would like to be able to link-in to Hive76, but with being a student, have a job that has very variable hours which often preclude me from travelling on a regular basis. Due to the time (and gas!) it takes for me to get to and from Philly, work schedule, and classes, making 3 of the last 4 meetings may be difficult.

    I was wondering therefore, what is the definition of a “meeting”? The situation in which I find myself is such that I could come down, and would enjoy coming down on random days during the week, and also probably Saturdays every so often. I work mostly second shift, so the night meetings are not doable. I could do the four hours over the month time period, and I can pay the dues.

    I would like to join at the $15 Lite Membership level.

    Please let me know what we can do to work things out.

    Best Regards,

    Scott Kendall

    I am interested in your class for the AVR. Unfortunately I didn’t find it until after the cutoff date and I haven’t the background in C yet. Will you be offering the class again in the future? I am very interested in this and the Arduino micro controller. I would be interested in any information you could give a beginner.

    I am in Kutztown and any thing you know of nearer to my area would also be appreciated.
