The hackspace has a number of small, self-governing teams that maintain particular parts of the space - covering specific tools, systems or areas. All teams have a channel in the team slack where they work.
Questions for teams
If you have a question about something a team looks after they can be contacted on the team email or Slack channel (listed on their team page). Likewise if you are interested in joining a team, email them or use Slack. Please note, however, that Slack is not a way for you to ask for things to be done - it's purely for teams to organise between themselves.
All teams in the Hackspace are ultimately responsible to the Trustees who have delegated certain powers and responsibilities to the teams.
To be a member of a team a Trustee needs to approve and add you in HMS.
All team members can email firstname.lastname@example.org, or contact Trustees on Slack with questions.
