Get Your KeyFob
Now that you’re a member, you have 24/7, 365 access to the makerspace. Your electronic keyfob grants you access.

You will need to meet up with someone in Leadership at TheLab to get and activate your fob. (You can either message us in Discord, or write to leadership@thelab.ms.) There is also a regular New Member Keyfob pickup in Meetup

There are several ways to do this: 1) Follow these instructions on how to add and activate your fob. 2) Attend a Meetup and ask for help activating your fob. 3) Email leadership@thelab.ms and coordinate a time to pick up your fob from TheLab.

Know Who to Talk to About What
Leadership is a term used to collectively refer to our Board of Directors and Officers. Area Hosts are folks who are in charge of specific equipment and areas in the makerspace. EVERYONE here is a volunteer, so we ask that you're respectful of people's time and energy.
