Proposed Amendment to Bylaws Article II, Section 6
Add "For substantial cause, the Board of Directors may indefinitely suspend a member's access to the space by a 2/3 majority vote of the board.

The board may suspend the access of no more than two members per month via this procedure. Access to the space may not be re-suspended by the Board of Directors for the same actions or incidents. Explanation of such suspensions must be submitted electronically to all members."
Membership Dues Waiver for EdTechDMV
Old problem, new example: An outside organization wants to use HacDC facilities during business hours. The organization is EdTechDMV, an educational non-profit organization, wants to offer free computer training classes during 9-5 hours later this year, in HacDC's classroom. As the courses are free there is no money involved.
