An Associate Membership is a discount on the membership fee for someone who is already a full member of another makerspace nearby.

A Reciprocal Membership is one where two hackspaces allow their members to access each other's space freely.

(You could also have a student membership for people with a student card, or an optional higher fee for those who's membership is paid for out of a corporate expense.)

Associate Memberships (or in the form of a free day per month) would encourage people not to be locked down to one hackspace or artist's co-working place in the city in perpetuity and mix it up a bit.

There has been talk of a Maker Passport or similar idea too. E.g. having membership of DoESLiverpool gets you into other spaces in Liverpool or a set number of days (or even not a set number of days, who knows?!) We'll likely want to have an arrangement with our new neighbours in the new space so that could be a good way to test out the concept.
