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.

For events, please email Chandler@gangplankhq.com for reservation.

4) How can I get a key/get a desk where I can leave my things?
Becoming a keyholder is something generally granted to people after they have been a part of the community for a while. Come in, get involved. If you feel Gangplank is a good fit, talk to current anchors about how you can get more permanent space.
