Criteria for recruiting new tenants
From an Ask-NCN Discussion 7/15/15
Subdividing office space into smaller executive offices or even individual desk spaces has always been an option to attract smaller tenants in a soft market. The key to filling these spaces is to provide services that would add value for the tenant. Having a concierge, a fully furnished office, high speed internet, state of the art phone system, executive conference rooms, and the latest multi media equipment are all amenities that could be factored into rental rates as these spaces cater to a specialized tenant market.
There is no magic formula that can guarantee that a non profit center will be successful as there are so many variables in the process of development and management. It used to be said that the secret to a successful real estate project is “location, location,location”. Today, I would say it’s more likely to be “location, timing, and financing”. Focusing on these factors is key to providing the necessary leadership and guidance.
The Board of Directors plays the primary role in carrying out the mission. It is absolutely essential that the Board be comprised of community minded members who are sensitive to the community needs and are connected with the organization’s constituents. However, equally important is including business members who are familiar with the financial, legal, and operational aspects of the business world. Any gap in expertise should be filled by recruiting and retaining experts with the appropriate skills and experience. Frequently, the merging of a variety of community and business minds yield creative ideas that allow for amazing accomplishments.

Nada Zohdy, OpenGov Hub
Here at the OpenGov Hub, we are one of the themed centers, which means the one fundamental requirement we have for membership is that organizations are generally doing work related to our theme of open government.
But over time as we’ve seen more demand we’ve also added a few questions to our online application, specifically which ask how the applicant would contribute to (not just take/benefit from) collaboration in the community. I think its important to set specific membership eligibility criteria up front that align with your mission and then just be consistent about following those to avoid any perceptions of bias.
