    • Get a email account — team correspondence will arrive here.

    • Get sent an electronic copy of the membership paperwork.

  • Log into Slack.

  • Onshape.

    • Electronic copy of forms to make admin easier.

  • Pay your fees.


  • Talk to the Safety Captain and get him/her to explain the Incident Reporting procedure.
