It is essential for all members to ensure that productivity and positivity are at the core of daily interactions.
Member code of conduct
1. Be friendly and courteous to other members. Treat others the way you want to be treated. Please be nice and helpful to each other, guests and visitors. If you’re not, we will warn you and you’ll have 30 days to shape up.
2. Believe in the power & value of co-working. Introduce yourself and connect with your community. Have fun, work hard, and participate. Do your part to promote a positive, pleasant, productive experience, every day. Be supportive of Cultivated Synergy and your fellow members because together we are more successful! What you put in, you get back.
3. Respect the space. Please clean up after yourself, especially in the communal spaces after use. We appreciate you keeping your workspace tidy as it represents us as a company and community as a whole. Be mindful to clean out old items in the fridge and take care of your dishes.
4. Mind your noise level. Be aware of your noise and its potential impact on others working around you. We ask you use headphones if you want to listen to music. Be mindful of members around you when you receive calls. Feel free to utilize unused conference rooms or step away before proceeding. Thank you for being courteous!

Do not touch other member’s personal property or take supplies home. Theft and damages will be taken very seriously. We are not liable for any lost or damaged items, ever.
