Member Information

As a member run club, here you can find all the boring but necessary documentation. Meeting agendas, notes, mandates, policy are all here.

Group Rules

The HSBNE bible, as it were. Our group rules are a fairly well modified version of the Model Rules for Incorporation. When in doubt, refer to these. Any member is welcome to raise a change to these at a meeting, however it costs HSBNE a nominal fee to re-file.

Code of Conduct

The code of conduct is a set of guidelines that outline an acceptable standard of behaviour and conduct of all HSBNE members whether it be online, in a pub or at HSBNE.

Safe Space Policy

Our Safe Space policy describes the environment of inclusivity and safety that we wish to create for people from all walks of life. HSBNE aims to be an equitable hackerspace.

Safety at HSBNE

Safety is important at HSBNE as it's hard to hack when injured.T his outlines the group's safety expectations when you use the space.

Storage at HSBNE

We have a number of places you can temporarily store your projects while working on them, this outlines the group's expectations when you use them.

Causes at HSBNE

Causes are micro groups within HSBNE that are empowered to direct funds towards their own interests without having to convince merit to the group as a whole.

Guests at HSBNE

Clarifications around having guests or non-members at HSBNE.

Tickets at HSBNE

HSBNE utilises a Ticket system to bring a fleeting sense of control amongst the Chaos. It is recommended you be aware of its usage

Dispute Process

Disagreements between members are inevitable. Through experience, HSBNE has provided this dispute resolution policy.

Policies

We have a number of non official but enforced guidelines within the group. These are typically the result of a meeting.

Ongoing Costs

The Executive tries to keep any ongoing cost commitments by HSBNE documented here.

Executive History

The history of members who have dedicated their time to making HSBNE run.
