The Hackspace is run by volunteers. A board of seven trustees give some of their spare time to ensure the space continues to run.

Just because a trustee seems to have an interest in a particular area, please don't assume that means you can't do things. Trustees are first and foremost members, and any work or space-wide projects that they take part in they do so as members.

You can always contact the entirety of the current board by emailing trustees@nottinghack.org.uk.

Having been a trustee for over three years, I think I've brought a different voice to discussions and decision-making concerning the continued development of the space. Being the most local of the current trustees, and often in the space during the day, I liaise with BizSpace, our building managers, and carry out a lot of minor housekeeping works within the space. My own projects are mainly concerned with infrastructure, and I also enable other members to find tools and supplies and help them understand how to use them safely. I'm also a member of the Tools team, and I regularly update the Wiki with information about infrastructure and tools.

I first became a trustee when we first became a proper limited organisation. I was scared that we would collapse in some way, and I needed to make sure that we didn't - and it seems to have worked pretty well! Since then, I've become the go-to guy for all things legal, which seems to take up an inordinate amount of my time and also terrifies me on an almost daily basis. Despite this encroaching fear, I still enjoy being a trustee, and I love to see the place grow and become a better place for everyone.

I originally joined Nottinghack as a student in 2012. Since then it's helped me learn a multitude of skills, from foamcraft to lasercutting, 3D printing to lathing. Before becoming a Trustee I was a part of several teams: Laser, Membership, Craft, Snackspace, and I definitely see my role as Trustee as continuing to be helpful and provide guidance to members. I'd love to see the Hackspace expand it's visibility outside our usual events, and start showing others just how awesome we are and the kinds of crazy contraptions we make. All of this while being elbow deep in lasercut foam props of course.

Trustee since: 2011

As a founding member of NottingHack, I've always been involved in helping the space grow. As a trustee, I continue to help the space by keeping a close eye on the financial aspect, tracking what we have on hand, the current project commitments, as well as long-term budget predictions. These days I spend most of my time at the space working on infrastructure projects such as working on Gatekeeper, the system that operates the front door, to restoring the Bridgeport mill, to improving the metal-working area.

My aims for my two year term are to greatly improve the processes and systems that keep the Hackspace running. I want to improve our communication, our turn around time and our public facing activities. I think it's important that we have a clear message about what we are here to do, and I want to be integral in making the Hackspace a better place, and I believe being on the Board of Trustees is the way to do that.

I've been a member of the space since 2013 and have seen the space nearly double in membership. This growth comes with interesting challenges which need to be solved and I feel that I can help as part of the trustee team. I aim to making the space a more inviting and enjoyable place for everyone with the help of my fellow trustees.
