While you don't need to be a member to attend events at Charm City Space, we strongly encourage you to consider membership. Not only does it help the Space survive financially, but it also helps to create a community centered around the Space. All members are able and encouraged to staff the shows and events, to participate in the meetings and email list, to weigh in and vote on proposed ideas, to check out items from the zine library, and to receive $1 off of shows at the Space for your membership year. Members can also volunteer for administrative positions such as treasurer, calendar/website maintenance, gallery curator, and head of maintenance as such positions become available. When you become a member you will get a packet with your membership card, along with information on what we are trying to do with the Space, and the guidelines which we run by.
We currently offer two membership levels:
• promoter: For a annual fee of $30 you can become an event promoter. This level of membership entitles you to the ability to book shows and other events at the Space. You must be a member for at least one month and help staff at least two shows (one sound shift and one door shift) before booking your first show at CCAS. This is so you can get an idea for how things are run and you can sort out any questions you may have.
• staffer: Membership is granted after staffing-training two shows, one on door and one on sound.
All members are strongly encouraged to sign up for our staffing schedule. The more people that sign up, the less everyone has to work. Generally though, it won't be more than once a month. You can sign up to work door, work sound, or both.
