This is a community space and we can all do our part to keep it tidy.
What is the Printing Policy? Membership includes light use of our networked printer. There is a slight charge per copy printed. We ask if you have heavy printing needs, that you take advantage of Fed-x, or UPS. You are encouraged to bring your own printer if you have a private office.

Being a part of a co-working space means working with others. We want to make sure that all our participants have the best possible experience to do what they do in a productive environment.
PLEASE DO THE FOLLOWING:
Network with others. Part of our mission is to help connect others as well as be a conduit for creativity and productivity. Introduce yourself and build lasting relationships.
Be respectful. Working with a diverse group of people can be very rewarding in personal and professional growth. Let's make sure that discussions on certain thought process' and world views remain respectful and productive.
Take care of our Building. Our workspaces are shared and designed for all to enjoy. Let's make sure we treat these spaces accordingly. After using the conference room, please have it ready for the next group. By cleaning after ourselves, our space will remain an enjoyable place to work.
Noise Control. Working in a shared space means we must be mindful of others. Short phone calls and everyday conversation are fine, but more focused conversations should be taken to the phone booth, the conference room or outside.
PLEASE DON'T DO THE FOLLOWING:
Bring children. OFFICE BOX® is geared for productivity. Having a sick child home from school or other circumstance is a bummer, however, please refrain from bringing them to work. A few minutes’ visit is Ok, but please be mindful of other people.
Use foul language. We have people from every walk of life and we hope to have a pleasant environment for all to enjoy.
Use tobacco or E-Cigs/Vapor. We want to be mindful of all, so please refrain from using any sort of E-Cigs or Vapor.
Be a kitchen catastrophe. Our open spaces are meant for an enjoyable environment, but that comes with drawbacks such as visible kitchen sinks and no barriers to stop your microwaved Thai Chicken Curry invading the nostrils of many. Please be mindful of cleaning up after yourself.
