Use of the Services and Space at The Collective
Member Etiquette: While at The Collective you will respect other members, the space and it’s partners. We reserve the right to revoke a membership for poor behaviour, damage to the property or it’s contents, intoxication, discrimination, sexual harassment or advances, or other behaviour that will disrupt the space or members in which is being shared.
The Collective is designed to build relationships, network and connect. With that in mind, people do come to the space to get some work done, have some quiet time or to unwind from a busy day. Please be mindful not to frequently interrupt others or over-engage in social conversation if not invited. We want to ensure that each member enjoys their experience at The Collective. While we do understand that for some people, a quiet, uninterrupted space is most suitable, we have created our “dedicated desk” area that is separate from our community workspace for this specific reason. If you find yourself needing a quiet workspace, please inquire about our “dedicated desk” rentals.
Please ensure that you clean up after yourself while visiting The Collective and if you happen to make a mess (say a little coffee spill on our couch), please let the members manager know right away so that we can spot treat the spill to ensure the longevity of our fixturing’s. All fixturing’s and furniture are the property of The Collective and are not to be removed from the premises.
We do provide our members with many resources such as book rentals from our library, guides and pamphlets from our sponsors, access to expert workshops and so on, please be respectful of these resources so that our members can continue to enjoy them as part of their membership.
