I attended my first METal Event, What Next?
What you need to do after attending your first METal event as a guest:
You were invited to one of our events as a guest and now you’re interested in the process of becoming a METal member. METal requires all guests after their first attendance to a METal event to make a decision of becoming a member or not. If the guest chooses to become a member, the process will begin with the METal Trial Program.
The process of becoming a member takes approximately up to three weeks. During this processing time you may continue attending the METal Saturday event as a prospective member (guest).
A METal Membership Quality Board has been established to ensure each prospective member meets the quality standards of participating in a METal Membership. It will be required for you, a prospective member, to participate by attending the METal Saturday Events during this Trial period.
It is also required for the prospective member to meet with a minimum of five METal members during this Trial period. The process for prospective members is listed below. Any invited individual over 21 years of age may become a member of METal.
Trial period is 3 consecutive Saturday Events beginning the following Saturday Event after attending your first METal Saturday Event.
Your first time visit is at the full guest rate of $50 with an RSVP ”YES”.
It’s the responsibility of you, the prospective member, to decide if you would like to file for a METal membership by notifying a METal staff member at the end of the event.
You may then sign up for the METal Trial Program on that day or before entering your next METal Saturday Event.
The Trial Program fee is $200 (non refundable) which ONLY covers three (3) consecutive METal Saturday Events at the member rate.
If you choose not to initiate the METal Trial you will not have to pay the additional fee and will not be allowed to attend any METal International events until the following quarter (4 months later from this date.)
If the Trial period is extended due to a delay in the MMQB’s decision, you may continue attending the METal Saturday Event as a guest at the guest fee rate of $50 until the approval process is completed. If you are not approved you will no longer be able to attend any METal Events for a six month period.
