WEC Membership Terms & Agreements- March Update

Members. The purpose of membership is to function as a united group to bring change, in various forms, to the community and beyond. Members should not join for the sole purpose of recruiting members from this organization. WEC will plan events, facilitate opportunities, and offer special incentives for members throughout the year. WEC asks that members commit to being present as a member. 

Active Membership. Active membership is set up as a 1 year subscription (12 monthly payments at the level selected). All membership benefits/offers will be active during this 12 month billing cycle. An official welcome email will be sent. This email will also include your Portal Access code and your membership code. If this cycle is cancelled, your membership will end. 

Member Codes. Membership codes, if applicable, are discounts to any offered event or opportunity. Codes must be used only by the member and while the event or opportunity exists. Codes will not be applied to any sold out events or closed offers.

Monthly Dues This means that you will be billed on a monthly basis for 1 year (12 months). Your membership will automatically continue each billing cycle until you cancel your WEC Membership by emailing WEC at [email protected] . When you cancel, your membership will end. 

Membership Renewal. Renewal is required at the end of the 12 month billing cycle (1 year). All membership benefits will end if membership is not renewed.

Credit card details. If you have elected to pay dues for membership by credit card, you warrant that the credit card information you provide is correct and you shall promptly notify us of any changes to such credit card information. You agree that if your credit card payment cannot be processed for any reason, WEC may suspend or cancel your WEC Membership.

Payments. WEC processes payments through Square, a third-party payment processor. We may direct you to contact Square for any processing issues beyond our platform. We are not liable for any payment processing issues beyond your monthly membership payments. No refund will be given for any reasons. Cancellation is at the responsibility of each member. 

Termination. You agree that WEC may terminate your membership or suspend your access, without notice, if WEC determines, in its sole and absolute discretion, that you have violated these Terms. You may discontinue your participation in the WEC Group at any time.
