What is a Coworking Space?
As one of the world’s few rural coworking offices, we get this question a lot. It is rare to find a coworking space in a town with a population of just over 3,000 people. Most coworking spaces are found in large cities. Coworking in San Francisco and coworking in New York City is quite popular. Coworking in Nevada County is something some folks might not expect.
A coworking space or, coworking facility, is a brick-and-mortar office space where people come together to work, exchange ideas, and share in a regular professional social environment. Unlike in a typical office environment, those coworking are usually not employed by the same organization. A coworking space offers a common roof for people who want to work with others but who are working as individuals or small groups.
Coworking is a legitimate business model used all over the world to provide structure and resources to independent working professionals. The model is attractive to work-at-home professionals, remote workers, freelancers, and independent contractors. At Sierra Commons we have many members who do off-site or field work such as farming, well-inspection, web design, and real estate appraising, but who need an office in order to complete administrative tasks such as accounting, recordkeeping, marketing, and web management. We have twelve Resident Members at Sierra Commons and over twenty Nomadic members.
Our members’ employment varies widely. Currently at Sierra Commons we have software engineers, IT directors, a travel agent, a real estate agent, copy editors, freelance writers, farmers, a lobbyist and more. Some of our members are self-employed and some of them work remotely for companies located in other cities throughout the world.
With membership, all of our members enjoy a desk rental and use of our facility which includes high-speed internet, printing-faxing-scanning capabilities, and utilities. We have private conference rooms for consultants and coworkers to meet with clients. We provide all of the overhead of a professional business environment for our members, including coffee, paper, lighting, and supplies like pens, staples and toilet paper. Membership is open to the public and available to those seeking office space. For our services, we charge a monthly fee.
Membership costs at Sierra Commons are divided into two categories: Resident Member and Nomadic Member and we also have drop-in rates. Resident members are people who are typically working 40+ hours each week and who have a designated desk space at Sierra Commons where they can keep their computers and other office equipment as needed at their own workstation. Resident members have their own key code and can access the building 24/7. Nomadic members are those who come and go, usually bringing in their own laptop when they come in. Nomadic members have access to the building during open business hours, Monday-Friday 8:30am-5pm. All members can schedule time in our conference rooms as needed and they may use Sierra Commons as their office/business address.
Coworking offers people a community while working in a professional situation that may be individual, remote, and/or sometimes isolating. As Nevada County’s coworking space, Sierra Commons is dedicated to the health of our economy while maintaining a sense of community. If you are interested in coworking, please feel free to contact us.
