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.

To contact an individual trustee, use their email from the table below.

Having been a trustee for two 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.

As a member of the Hackspace, I have tried to contribute by running workshops and assisting with infrastructure tasks. As a trustee I hope to encourage members to feel that they run the Hackspace and are able to participate as I have done. I believe that members running the Hackspace for themselves is a vital part of creating a feeling of community. Over the last year I have been very pleased to see the creation of member teams for resources/tools etc, and I intend to encourage further development of this.

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.

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.
