Ace Makerspace is a 95%-volunteer organization. We foster an air of collaboration and respect, so bring your energy and enthusiasm. There are two types of dues-paying participants: full members and member applicants (known as provisional members). Everyone starts out as provisional**.
Ace Makerspace is committed to creating an inclusive environment and is proud to be intentionally creating a diverse community.
*The Scholarship programs will return once we find a specific source of funding. The current cost of doing business has limited our ability to self-fund lower membership rates beyond the membership assistance provided at the Blue and Green Membership rates. There is no difference in services and privileges between the rate tiers.
**”Membership account” means a payment account on this website; it does not refer to full membership in the California Benefit Corporation known as Ace Makerspace (dba).
***A recent, recognizable picture for our non-public Member Directory is required for membership. This picture is never shared with the public, and it’s removed from the directory once your membership is no longer active.
Membership Activation. Ace Makerspace is volunteer-run. Key fob activation once all the sign-up criteria are met can take anywhere from 2 to 48 hours based on staff availability. Check your email if you don’t get your expected confirmation or ping [email protected]
Membership Cancellation. All members control their own membership accounts including cancellation. Cancellations are not prorated and all billing is in 1-month increments. Membership is tied to access, not use. Refunds based on lack of use are usually not provided. Instructions for canceling or suspended memberships are on the Ace Makerspace Wiki.
