I'm not sure who all is interested in a co-working space. I'm cc'ing chicago at, our new list! Info:

This has the advantage of being both cost effective for those of us that might only use space a few times a week and it will (for the short term at least) be the same space that the Foundation uses.

I've been to 1871 but the space has changed a lot since then. Do they have private conference rooms we could grab for meetings?

As I mentioned before, after some fairly extensive research I was only able to find one space that would entertain a "part-time" membership (Design Cloud). Would anyone be interested in pursuing that space? Any other ideas?

I'm open to new spaces. I don't have a lot of time to do research but I can try to help. 

Thanks, Gemma, for looking into this!
