We welcome professionals of all kinds to work at SURGE Tacoma. It doesn't matter what you do or how big your company is, not any two SURGE members are the same. We have members from all different fields and fortes, with many people in the startup category, and no matter what our members do, they all bring something to the table, and are a great community of nice, hardworking people.
We offer mail service and package handling as well as meeting room access for all membership levels. You can rent meeting rooms by the hour if you are not a member, however mail service is only available to members. Reception services are not part of the service we provide.
The membership fee is due on the 1st day of the month. There is a $25 initial late fee on the 6th of the month, and $5 per day until fully paid. A $25 fee will be charged for failed credit/debit card payments or returned checks.
The easiest way to pay is to set up credit card or automatic (ACH) bank account payment, which can be done in our online Members Portal. We also accept payments by check, cashier's check, money order or credit/debit card in the office.
Yes and yes! Please let the Community Manager know if you are planning to receive mail here so that we may label a mailbox for you. Your mail can be addressed to your personal name or business name at our building street address. Please be sure whichever name you put is known the the Community Manager so we sort it to the correct mailbox. We’ll sort the mail and place it in the mail station, and store your packages behind the front desk.
