Community Room Policies
Any activities taking place in the Community Room must be arranged with the Courtesy Desk in advance. Completed event applications must be received at least two weeks in advance in order to be included in our advertising. Instructors are limited to one class per week in order to provide adequate scheduling opportunities for other members of the community. Instructors will be allotted 15 minutes before and after their event for set-up and clean-up.
Community Room users may not use language against Mountain View Market Co+op's products, services, or policies. We prohibit the promotion of competing products. Any instructor who is interested in demonstrating or promoting any product must receive the store's approval.
Completed event applications must be received at least two weeks in advance in order to be included in our advertising. This includes postings to our email list of events (sent to over 600 people), social networking sites, online calendar, etc.
We prefer that instructors provide their own flyers but if you are unable to produce one, a simple one can be created on your behalf. We will post your flyers on our in-store bulletin boards. Please note that flyers must be approved by the Courtesy Desk before they can be hung on the Community Board in the cafe. Flyers may be hung for no longer than 30 days.
All class instructors must pay a small fee for the use of the Community Room. This fee covers the overhead and cleaning of the room. The fee is charged per session, not per hour. Owners may use the Community Room for $7/ session and non-owners for $10/ session. It is our policy that Member-Owners are charged at least 20% less than non-members for any classes hosted in our Community Room (for example, if a non-member is charged $10, then a Member-Owner must be charged $8 or less).
For any event charging a fee, the space is not considered reserved until the room fee is paid in full. Any attendee fees charged for the class are to be collected by the class instructor. It is up to the class instructor to bring proper change.
