Project: Assemble your Administrative Group

The Administrative Group is there to help operate the space after it is opened. Finding the team members who can manage these responsibilities before it's open means you have a chance to work within your community to find just the right people. Doing this can help your Founding Group get the break they deserve after the space is launched.

Knowledge

The notebook section provides a way for you to store and share information with your group members. With the book feature you can:

  • Add book pages and organize them hierarchically into different books.
  • Attach files to pages to share them with others.
  • Track changes that others have made and revert changes as necessary.
  • Archive books that are no longer of interest to the group. Archived books can be reactivated later if needed.
