How do I add a new team member to my membership?
Thanks for hiring an awesome new team member to join the Village family! We love adding great people to our community. Please get your new hires excited to onboard with us during our New Member Orientation! This is where we give them a special welcome, help them get acclimated, and give them their keycard.
Below are the 3 easy (required) steps that you need to communicate to your new team member. We suggest a quick copy and paste of the below content to send them. =)
1. REGISTER AS A MEMBER.
Please go to members.atlantatechvillage.com and scroll down and select your plan.
Choose your correct plan (usually Additional Person in Office) and complete the process. Company name is required so we can loop you under the correct team.

Please use THIS link to schedule your New Member Orientation on your first day of work. Appointments start at 9:30am (Monday-Thursday). It will be awesome and under 30 minutes. =)

Note: You can only pick up your key card through our New Member Orientation.
You can park in the Village Parking Deck on your first day by utilizing our Visitor Parking for a paid, hourly rate.

Key card problems, replacements, and questions.
To replace a lost keycard, the fee is $10.00 and you need to schedule a time with Irina at the front lobby desk for replacement.Is your key card not working properly? We can reset it. Please email Irina at email@example.com with your name, company name, and the exact problem you are having. He will be in touch shortly.Wondering how many keycards come with your office? Private offices can have up to 20% extra keycards per your desk ratio. So, if you have a 4 person office, you can have 5 keycards to allocate. (hello, interns!)Subleasing to a fellow member? No problem. We know it helps pay the bills. The owner of the office plan is solely responsible for everything including payments, parking, subleasing, and Village Team needs. As the main (and only) point of contact, you are responsible for communicating the on boarding instructions to each new member. And, all on boards/off boards need to be communicated directly from you (owner of the account) to Julie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is the visitor policy?
VISITOR POLICY:You must greet and walk your visitors from the entrance to your area. We have an awesome iPad check in system in our 1st floor lobby for your guests. Through the ipad, they will look up the person they are meeting. If that is you, you will be greeted with a text that says who that person is, what company they are with, and that they are waiting for you to pick them up in reception (the 1st floor lobby). You are able to respond to them through text. Feel free to go downstairs and test it out!PLEASE NOTE: With this system in place, you are responsible for walking down and greeting all of your guests. Neither security nor staff will be escorting your guests to you. Why? Because our goal is to make our community tight knit and safe and this system will help make that possible. Also remember that all stairwells, elevators, and entryways are key carded, so a wayward visitor may get stuck in an access-controlled area. Be sure to walk your visitors back to the 1st floor.
Having access to the Village's rooftop is an awesome perk, right? Hours for Villager access aligns with security hours which is 8AM-7PM Monday-Friday. The rooftop may be closed from time to time for a private event. We'll let you know through signage in the elevators.
Interested in hosting an epic rooftop event? We have some killer member discounted rates because we want you to throw cool parties. Email Nisha@atlantatechvillage.com to get event information. =)
I want to have an event at the Village. How do I schedule that?
If your group is 8 people or fewer, you may want to consider booking a conference room. You can do this at atlantatechvillage.com member login under Booking Calendar. During the day, you can use the Lenox National Boardroom for groups up to 20. In the evenings, the Lenox National Boardroom becomes an event space and must be rented through Nisha (email@example.com). For larger events, you can rent the Event Center, Community Center, or Rooftop patio at a Member discounted rate. Please email Nisha for reservations or more info!
