We have had many changes over the years. In May 2022, we increased our dues by $4/yr plus we added new levels that include our new (as of Oct 2021) $5 per meeting fee. Read more about these prices and levels below. We also adjusted our Spotlight Table perk as well.
If you are not ready for one of our paid membership levels, you are welcome to sign up for a free membership. You can still attend our meetings even if you are not a paying member. We encourage you to pay the membership fee if you have received value from our group. Plus, there are several membership perks and discounts that are included in our paid membership levels. Our membership fee covers many things and we host several fun events throughout the year with our surplus.
Please note, that if you request a refund on your membership fee after it was automatically processed for the year, we will keep $5 from your fee for administrative costs.
This group was too overwhelming and time consuming to manage with just one person. We have grown so big that it was necessary to hire an assistant to keep this group running smoothly. For example, our website costs about $600/yr and it another $350/yr to hire an assistant to help us out behind the scenes.
In January 2017, we implemented a yearly membership dues structure at just $25/yr. We quickly realized this was not quite enough to cover our expenses so in June 2018, we had to increase it to $35/yr.
In 2019, we only made some minor tweaks and changes to our membership dues. We added a new level for Featured Members (it is now a yearly cost rather than a one time fee) and made restrictions on our free membership (you must renew it every 6 months).
In May 2022, we have had to increase our dues increase for the first time in 4 years! We also added membership levels that include the $5 meeting fee.
H2H Free Member - FREE - Perhaps you are not ready to pay your yearly dues but want to stay in touch with us and get email notifications of events and other important information? This is the membership for you! This membership level is free but it requires you to manually renew every 6 months. That means you must log into your account and click the "Renew Membership" button when it is time to renew. If you are no longer interested in our group or attending our meetings, you can simply choose not to renew. Your account will be archived and you will no longer get notifications from our group. This also saves us money as we don't have to pay for an inactive account.
