Becoming a Member

You need to do the following:

  • Fill out a membership form - You can ask a board-member for one or you can download it here File:Techincmembership.pdf File:Techincmembership.odt and pre-fill in some of the information , before your visit to the space.
  • Read our Statutes and our House rules
  • As part of the membership process, an introduction and explanation about the space and the association will be given by a board-member. This is NON-optional.
    • Due to the fact that these introduction tours are a time intensive process, the board has decided these are given on (usually) the second and fourth Wednesday of the month.
    • Start time is 20:00. You can just come those dates and hook on, however an email beforehand is greatly appriciated:
  • After agreeing, both a signature of the new member and a board-member on the membership-form are required. The board-member in question will take responsibility for processing your membership.
  • Setup a monthly bank transfer and send an email to with the reference you used to pay - for example 'Membership' followed by your name or nickname. TECHINC DOES NOT DO DIRECT DEBIT .
  • Members can request a getting a RFID keyfob to the building and our space. See "Keys" below for the details on that.

Information for new members

If you are (thinking about becoming) a new member, there is information for new members to help you get started.

There's also a dedicated page about the formal organisation of our hackerspace


Members can ask for an RFID-fob ('Fob' for short) to access the building and the space itself. The RFID fob can be obtained from a board member.

Keys do come with some extra requirements:

    • The RFID-fob costs 21,50 Euros. You can pay this cash when receiving the FOB or transfer the money to the Techinc account.
    • We try to have pre-activated FOBs on hand. This might not always be the case. Please allow a couple of days for activation by our landlord.
    • To enter the space, you need to scan your RFID Fob and enter your personal PIN code. To setup the initial pincode (you can change it later at the door), please ask a board member.
    • In previous we used to require a copy of your ID as it was required of us by the building-owners in case of break-ins, etc. But this is no longer the case and we do not need any copy of ID.
