Terms of Membership
WBN does not guarantee sales, fans or followers with membership. The purpose of the WBN is to help members network and connect. We help get your business in front of other like minded people. All local chapters are company exclusive and may limit the amount of members in a specific industry. Please check with local chapter leader for policy. Membership is subject to cancellation, without notice, if terms are not met. Members may not miss more than 3 meetings in a quarter. See Chapter leader for specific attendance policy. National Membership is NOT company exclusive. You may NOT change the business you represent without prior approval form either your local chapter leader or the national director.**
Unethical and Inappropriate business practices may include but are not limited to. Harassment of other members. Spamming members or soliciting them for outside networking groups or businesses without their expressed permission.
WBN Automatic Membership Renewals
All paid WBN memberships are for the term specified in the sale. For your convenience and protection to prevent lapses in your WBN membership, WBN will automatically renew your membership at the end of each year, using the credit card you initially provided. You will be provided a courtesy renewal reminder prior to your renewal date.
When your initial term nears its end, WBN sends you two reminder emails which indicate the amount of your automatic renewal and the date upon which it will be processed. WBN's communications are sent beginning 7 days prior to the automatic renewal and 3 days prior to the renewal. This reminder policy is designed to give you every opportunity to opt out of the automatic renewal you previously authorized.
If you wish to opt out of automatic renewal by canceling automatic payments after you join or if you would like to change the credit card that you originally used to pay for membership for your renewal, please contact our Membership Department at: email@example.com. If you choose to remove your automatic membership payments you will then be switched to a “Manual Payment” member. This means you will still receive the reminder emails about the upcoming renewal but you will need to login or click appropriate pay link in email reminder to renew your membership.
