As a rule of thumb, hive has aimed for at least 3-4 months of
membership from members.   Hive has a policy of 'you have to be
vouched for by an existing member', which has worked well for adding
just a little social pressure to joining (you have to get to know
someone in the space a little bit before you join) and we've only had
a few people say 'oh yea!!!' but never show up to 2-3 meetings to meet
someone, or get to know the space.  Of the people that have stuck
around a few open houses then applied for membership, only 1 got keys
but didn't stick around for a while.

WOMM (works on my machine), YMMV (your mileage may vary),
