We want to share a couple of reminders about shared workspace areas. Spaces and booths are at a premium. We are here to share and work together and spaces in the coworking areas are not "reserved". Yes, there is a first come/first served policy in the coworking area but let's play nice in our collaborative space. Exactly what are we saying? "Don't hog the booths!" OffiCenter policy is a two-hour limit in the booths and after that there may be a charge if you want to reserve the spot. Also, if you need a private meeting space and a booth will do, you may reserve the space with an OffiCenter team member at no charge.
The number one problem is HOLDING booths, tables or seats. Leaving all of your items, i.e. laptops, cords, personal items, purses, briefcases, and such, is prohibited if a person is Missing in Action (MIA). In a SHARED WorkSpace this is definitely "uncool". If you are MIA, we will remove your items and lock them in the business center where they can be recovered. Keep in mind that our spaces belong to all of our (almost) 1,500 members and one space does not belong to only you. As our community continues to grow, we are seeing a need to enforce this policy in order to be fair to all.
Although rare, you are sharing amenities with others, which means that everything may not be available all of the time.
