DO WE HAVE YOUR CURRENT MAILING ADDRESS?

It’s almost time for renewal invoices to go out to all returning members!

Every year during renewal invoice season we get lots of mail returned as “undeliverable.” If you have moved during the past year, please send a message using the form below to double check that we have your correct mailing address.

Update your mailing address now to make sure our letter finds it way to you easily next month!

Moving away and don’t need an invoice? See the instructions in this blog post.

NOT RENEWING YOUR MEMBERSHIP IN 2020??

NOT RENEWING YOUR MEMBERSHIP IN 2020??

Do you already know you won’t be renewing your
membership with our club in 2020?

If you do, we ask that you please fill out the contact form at the end of this post before NOVEMBER 1ST of this year*. An email will automatically be sent to our membership coordinator, Billie Schoeler, who will then make sure you aren’t sent a renewal invoice in November and annoying reminders in early 2020!

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 IWC Stuttgart (emails are fine).

2. Members must notify us before the end of 2019 if they wish to cancel their membership for 2020.

3. Members who do not cancel their membership before the end of 2019 or pay their renewal dues before the end of the first quarter in 2020 will 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 extra work for everyone.

*If you miss the November 1st deadline, please let us know anyways! You might still get an invoice for 2020 in the mail but we can still cancel it and the reminders.
