Happy Holidays! Its great to be back and see everyone. I hope you all enjoyed your long weekend and were able to enjoy time with friends and family. As many of you already know, the Hub Holiday Party will be at Hub SoMa on Friday, December 10 from 7-930pm. For details and RSVP, please visit this link. Hub Member discount code is hub2010holiday. We hope to see all of you there!
A few things changed while I was away and I thought I would point them out for others who haven’t been around:
- 2 espresso machines: That’s right, find your favorite member and have yourself an old fashioned brew off. I dare say the one on the left has a little more gumption.
- New Fans in the Privacy Booths: Remember the old days when the privacy booths were dark and dank, well no more! New Fans have been installed and are popular as ever, so please be sure to sign up and try to keep your time under 2 hours.
Additionally, we are looking for an acoustics specialist to help us improve the sound quality in the meeting rooms. If any of you know someone who might be able to help us out, we would like to hear from you. Please email the hosts.
Booking Meeting Rooms in Berkeley: I have been ask by Robin to remind you of billing procedures for booking rooms in Berkeley. Though it may come up as a $0 fee in the automatically generated invoice, you will still be charged the same rates there as you would here. Please see a host if you have any questions. We are working to correct this to avoid any confusion in the future.
