Membership of My Networking Club Networking Club (also referred to as MNC) is conditional on acceptance of these terms and conditions. These may be subject to change, and we shall not be obliged to notify you personally of any changes so please refer to newsletters, MNC social media and the MNC website for notifications of changes that may affect your membership. By applying for any membership you are accepting these terms and conditions.
- Application for Membership
Any business owner can apply. We reserve the right to deny membership and refuse access to our meetings and events or online facilities. We shall not be obliged to provide explanation for such refusal and are not be liable for such action.
Applications are made online and by submitting such application you are deemed to have accepted such terms and conditions.
- Benefits of Membership
Various categories of membership exist and different fees and benefits apply for each. Corporate and group memberships are available on application – please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and criteria.
Benefits of membership can be found on the member benefits page of our website and can be subject to change. Such changes will be notified on our website and/or newsletters.
- Membership Fees
Other than our Flexi monthly membership, all other membership fees are annual and can be paid securely through our website. Our membership system will send reminders when your membership is due to renew or if your payment card is due to expire. All memberships will automatically renew for another term if not cancelled and a new 12-month subscription started. You must contact us via email or website chat when you receive your renewal notice if you wish to cancel as once the payment has been made, it cannot be reversed or refunded. For this reason, for your own protection, please ensure you keep your membership account email address details up to date, even if you close or change your business.
Fees are stated on our website and subject to change without prior notice. Renewal fees are set by MNC and are set at our discretion. Honorary membership is provided at the discretion of the Directors and maybe withdrawn without notice. You are not obliged to renew your membership but you must give notice of cancellation by replying to the renewal reminder email.
- Meetings and Events
Members are requested to book all meetings prior to attending and must make every endeavour to inform MNC if they cannot attend once booked. If a member attends a meeting without booking and the event is at capacity they will not be permitted their pitch time. They may stay at the meeting at the Host Leaders discretion but this cannot be guaranteed. Special events may require payment before attending. Meetings will take place as stated on the website and are subject to alteration without prior notice MNC may have to cancel meetings due to factors outside our control. We will endeavour to make every effort to avoid this and notify members but we will not be liable under any circumstances for any cancellation. If a speaker who is booked for a special event does not attend, MNC will not be liable for such non-attendance.
Members agree to comply with all health and safety regulations and policies of all host venues.
MNC operates a non-exclusive, open to all policy. There is no limit on members from the same profession or discipline attending with exception being representatives or consultants from the same network marketing company. There will be a limit of 2 people representing the same organisation. There is no minimum or maximum number of meetings for attendance.
Members may promote/represent the business or line of work that led them to join MNC. Multiple businesses or a new line of work/business may be promoted at the discretion of the Host Leader, but cannot be guaranteed. The Host Leader may refer this to MNC HQ for a ruling and the Directors decision will be binding.
Members who run networking groups that may conflict with MNC or whose networking activities are deemed to be in competition with MNC, may not promote these groups or networks without express written permission from the Directors. The Directors reserve the right not to give this permission and no explanation may be forthcoming.
Members are required to contact MNC in advance of an event start time if they can no longer attend a meeting previously booked. If the member is deemed to be a ‘no show’ (i.e. they have not turned up and no prior warning or explanation, within a reasonable time frame after the event, is received) this could affect their entitlement to book future meetings. Two no shows consecutively, or at a given location will result in the member’s entitlement to book in advance rescinded. The member will be automatically placed on the requested location’s waiting list. MNC will then contact the member if a place is still available the day before.
MNC shall not be liable for any illness (or allergic reaction), accident or injury that occurs to members or guests while attending meetings. MNC will not be liable for the loss or damage to any persons personal or business possessions during a meeting.
The membership is an annual term and no fees are refundable. If you do not wish to renew after a year’s term then you must let us know by replying to the renewal reminder email. If you use the monthly payment plan for your membership, all 12 payments are due. If the payments fail, then we will invoice for the remaining balance and an admin fee may also become payable. If you use the monthly payment plan to pay for your yearly subscription and you do not wish to renew, you must notify us a month ahead of renewal so that we can cancel the ongoing payments. Failure to do so may result in a new year term being entered into. Any adjustment after that date will be subject to an admin charge. MNC may terminate your membership at any time if your conduct does not fit with the ethos of MNC. No refund shall be given in such a case, and we shall not be obliged to give you a reason for such a termination. In such a case all your details will be removed from our website. And we shall withdraw all other benefits.
The membership fee is a whole club membership which gives you the freedom to travel to any of our groups, if they are not fully booked for the chosen month you wish to visit. If your chosen group location closes, a refund will only be offered if there is not another suitable online group or in-person group that meets within a 15 mile radius. Any request for a refund that falls outside of this criteria, where a group has closed due to circumstances beyond MNC’s control, will only be considered at the Directors discretion.
- Data Protection and Intellectual Property
We will respect the information you give us in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and GDPR. You agree that it is your responsibility to keep your data accurate and up to date. We will use your data to administer your membership.
- Governing Law
These terms and conditions shall be interpreted in accordance with the English law and all disputes shall be subject to the jurisdiction of the English courts.
