HOWTO Leave

From i3Detroit
Jump to: navigation, search

Updating your membership record when you're leaving the group is important! Whether you're moving cross-country or just going back to school for a few months, it helps those you leave behind continue making i3 a better place.

If you've experienced a problem with another member that is making you feel unwelcome, please refer to HOWTO Be Excellent and the Harassment Policy and contact the Board if there's been a violation.

If you're planning to come back within a few months

  • Email the Vice-President of Member Retention and ask to be put on 'hiatus' status. They'll enter this into the CRM, which suspends billing, and keeps your account from getting all horrible and confusing.
  • Hiatus leaves you on the member's email lists and slack, though you will be asked to turn in any keys (fobs, cards, actual bits of metal, etc.)
  • Hiatus status is appropriate for medium-term departures. If you're gonna be gone a year or longer, please just cancel your membership.
  • You will be able to restart your membership by contacting the VP of Onboarding
  • Proceed to the final steps.

If you're not planning to come back (soon)

  • Email the Vice-President of Member Retention and ask to cancel your membership. Being clear about when you've left reduces the fretting about whether you have.
  • If you are on auto-pay, you will need to cancel that yourself (as shown below)
  • Canceling your membership will result in more privileges being revoked than going on hiatus. You may be removed from the Members email list and Slack, unless you specifically ask to remain on them. Remaining is at the discression of the VP of M.R
  • So long as you left in good standing, you will always be welcome to renew your membership at any point in the future (it'll probably be less paperwork than when you first joined, but more than if you had just gone on Hiatus.)
  • Proceed to the final steps.


Final steps for all cases

  • Go through member storage, make sure you've taken all your stuff home, and write "-VACANT-" where your name was.
  • Go through the rest of the space and make sure you aren't leaving anything else that belongs to you. If you're taking anything home that people might miss, please notify the mailing list.
  • If you have items in the shop that people have come to rely on, it would be excellent to offer the option of letting the space or another member buy it from you.
  • Just to reiterate, if you are on auto-pay, you will need to cancel that yourself (as shown below)
  • We would really appreciate if you would fill out our exit survey located at http://www.i3detroit.org/exit. It only takes a few minutes and really helps us improve the space for our members!
