Meetings to coordinate space security, guidelines for use, inter-organizational support and respect, and space development/expansion occur on the last Sunday of each month. At least one representative from each organization who holds an office at the space must attend. The meetings are open to all, but decisions are made by consensus, and when not reached, by vote with two votes per organization.
Organizations or individuals that do not comply with the space guidelines, mission or purpose may lose any or all space privileges or be asked to leave the space at any time. Organizations or individuals are entitled to a hearing at the monthly space meeting pending any loss of privileges.
Coordination of the setting and collection of fees for use of the space is established at the space meeting and then agreed to by the organizations using the space. The YJC is authorized to monitor and collect compensation for any expenses occurred including rent, maintenance, repair and utilities.
