In the Administration Unit, members and staff work on a variety of administrative tasks that are essential to the Clubhouse. Clerical work includes managing the finances, running a members bank, record-keeping and multiple types of data entry. Colleagues work at a reception area, cashiers' desk, and member's bank. Being on the first floor, the unit is the first stop for new members and visitors. Members give tours and manage the orientation process for potential members, greet visitors, and do public speaking at local schools and community groups. They also conduct ongoing research and write reports to funders.
