FAQs:

1) Is there a fee?
Gangplank does not charge a monetary fee for use of space. We ask that if you find the space to be meaningful, you give back in a way that is meaningful to you.

2) Do I need to register in advance to reserve a desk or make an appointment?
We do not require any form of reservation to use our drop in space. Come on in. When you get here, almost anyone in the space can give you a tour. If you have questions, just ask and as you get to know the answers, help other newbies feel welcome when they come in.

3) Do you have meeting or event space available for reservation?
We have several conference style rooms available for use. To reserve a space more than a week out, email Chandler@gangplankhq.com. The week of, there is a sheet on the door of each room, you can write your reservation there as long as it is during regular office hours.

4) How can I get desk where I can leave my things?

As a community, we want as much of people’s presence and as little of their stuff as possible. We often find that those who are a good fit are typically the people who are around and giving back so often that we mistake them for the crew who do have desks. Come in, meet people, build relationships, and contribute where you can. The value in Gangplank is far more the relationships than a desk anyway.

5) When is the best time to come by?

Anytime we are open is good. Wednesdays tend to be popular as we have our brownbag speaker series from noon to 1pm and hacknight that evening. If it is your first time coming in, events are also a good way to connect. Check out our facebook page and meetup.com page for upcoming events.

Coming soon:
-Virtual tour of the space.
-Information on equipment that is available for use and how to reserve it.
