Membership Agreements

  1. I agree to attend at least four meetings per year. I also understand that I am expected to have a substitute (e.g. colleague, office manager, etc.) represent my services in the meetings if I cannot attend. I understand that it is important that my category and services be represented in each meeting. I understand that not meeting these requirements and expectations can jeopardize the status of my membership with Integrative Change.
  2. I agree to only promote my “category” in the meetings and respect the categories of other members.
  3. I agree that if I register online for a meeting and I fail to cancel my registration within 24 hours and fail to attend the meeting then I am still responsible for paying for the event (approximately $20-30/event; this includes the lunch and use of the private dining room at the chosen venue). I understand that all members/partners/guests must pay for their own lunch and cannot opt out in advance or the same day. This fee (typically $20-30/person depending on the venue) covers the cost of the private dining room and lunch
  4. I agree to complete the New Member Orientation.
  5. I understand that I must pre-register for all IC events on the IC website under “Upcoming Event”. This is necessary so IC can coordinate with the meeting venue.

  10. I understand the importance of providing and seeking clinical consultation with other practitioners within IC. I understand that this enables me to provide a higher quality of treatment to my clients as well as enhance my professional skills.
  11. I am willing to embrace a “Helpers Reward” philosophy. I realize that the more I selflessly support and refer potential clients to other IC members, that my practice will grow as well.

IC reserves the right to terminate the contract if the member is not in good standing with the agreements outlined in this form. I understand that I also have the option to terminate my contract with IC at any point.
  17. I understand that if I move offices or open a second office that is in conflict with another Network member in the same category that I may not promote this office address on the IC website. You have the option of switching categories however this must be discussed with IC first.

Membership Renewal Guidelines

In order to keep you membership active you must submit your renewal on-time.

  2. If you do not want to continue your membership, you must notify IC by mail and complete this Exit Survey. If you fail to terminate your membership then your membership is considered to be active; your membership will be pro-rated every two weeks until you officially terminate your membership using the steps outlined above.

Members understand that during this six month grace period, that their profile will be removed from the IC website and they will lose all membership privledges, including attending quarterly meetings.

Membership Agreements are subject to change. Member’s will be notified by IC of any major changes in these agreements. If a member has a conflict with any specific agreement or it was not an existing agreement at the time the membership application was submitted, then this will be handled on a case-by-case basis directly with IC.
