How to

step 01

We offer all of our prospective members full transparency and comprehensive communication. In lieu of this, reading through Article 6 of our TOS provides you with the information you need to have an affirming, equitable experience at The Index.

step 02

We follow a multi-tiered processing procedure to vet our members by checking references, ensuring alignment to our standards of ethics, and checking registered sex offender registries. Your application provides us with the insight we need to make an informed decision about your compatibility with our culture.

step 03

Now it's time to choose the tier that works best for you. We have monthly or yearly payment plans for each of our tiers (Library, Silver, and Gold). There is no right or wrong answer, so choose what works best for you budget and your uses of The Index.

why become a member?

Memberships support the mission¹ of The Index while covering a portion of our operating costs so that we are able to offer member-only social hours and various events without additional cost (beyond membership dues). Members have the option to pay membership dues on a monthly or yearly basis. Each membership is valid for one year and may be renewed (pending review by the Owners).

All members, regardless of tier, gain the following perks:
