Roaming Membership[edit]

This page is a rough description of Roaming Membership for hackerspaces in the USA. Roaming Membership refers to how and what privileges a member of a hackerspace has *at other spaces* based on their current membership, and the level of cooperation their home space has with others in the system.

If your hackerspace has a collaboriave membership sharing setup with other spaces, please add it, and if we don't have a good description for your cross-membership system, please add a new section with a description.


Almost all hackerspaces accept other hackers (members of a space or not) as visitors. Local hackerspace rules run from 'you can visit when someone is in our space' through 'you can have keys and let yourself in as a visitor.' If you are on the road, check with the hackerspaces you are visiting to see how much access and availablity you get as a visitor.
