Do you already know you won’t be renewing your membership with our club in 2014?
If you do, we ask that you please fill out the contact form at the end of this post before December 31st of this year. An email will automatically be sent to our membership coordinator, Billie Schoeler, who will then make sure you aren’t sent annoying invoices and reminders to pay your renewal dues in January.
Why do we need to have you cancel your membership in writing?
Because we are a registered organization here in Germany, we have to follow the rules specified in our By Laws when members leave the area or otherwise wish to withdraw their membership in our club.
Those rules are:
1. Members must notify us in writing if they wish to cancel their membership in the IWCS (emails are fine).
2. Members must notify us before the end of the calendar year if they wish to cancel their membership for the next year.
3, Members who do not cancel their membership or pay their renewal dues before the end of the first quarter must be sent one reminder and then a letter notifying them that they are being removed from the membership list.
If you know you will be leaving, tell us now! It will save lots of headaches for everyone.
