EWGA Westchester events are offered on a prepaid basis. The payment options (depending on the event/venue/instructions) are as follows:
1) credit card via 123 sign up system,
2) check mailed in and received prior to event, or
3) check/cash presented day of event prior to start of event.
Should a payment not clear (ie: Insufficient Funds, check returns, cancelled or invalid credit card, etc.) a member must pay and square accounts with the Finance Director within 15 days of notice. Failure to do so will result in temporary suspension of membership privileges eliminating the opportunity to sign up for future EWGA Westchester events. Membership will be reinstated once payment is received.
If there is a second occurrence, the member will only be allowed to fully prepay for future events to ensure funds clear prior to the event.
If there is a third occurrence, the Board has the right to revoke membership, though the member would be allowed to finish any events already paid for and cleared (such as league play).
If termination is being considered, the member may address their payment inconsistencies to the Board, such as mitigating factors etc., for the board's consideration and review.
The Boards decision on suspension and termination are final, and in keeping with the EWGA National Board's guidelines on the subject.
