Our July Technology Wizards meeting will be Wednesday, July 12th, 12:00pm – 3:00pm at the Microsoft PacWest office located at 1414 Northrup (in the Pearl district).
With the beginning of July, we also begin a new Technology Wizards membership year. If you haven’t yet, please renew your membership prior to the end of our July meeting on Wednesday to maintain your membership in Technology Wizards.
Notable Differences this year:
- Annual dues increased from $120/year to $125/year, with no discount.
- We are also taking the applications electronically. You can still print out and sign the application form and hand it to us at the meeting, or mail it to us, but you can also download the Membership Application (PDF) from our website (www.technologywizards.com/Membership) complete the form, sign it electronically and email it to us.
- Payments can be handled electronically as well. You can still give us a check if you want, but you can also pay via PayPal. If you do pay via PayPal please give us enough information so we can figure out who the payment came from. If submitting your payment electronically – Please use the “Send money to friends and family option” to eliminate any expenses for TW… And, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org with a note that states “2017 TW Membership Dues for [Your Company Name]”
- PLEASE DO NOT send it directly to any of our Board Members
- If you send the money from your linked bank account there is no charge. If you choose to use a credit card PayPal will charge you a fee… Please do not use the “Pay for goods…” option as that passes credit card charges on to TW… We are offering this option for the convenience of the membership… TW is a non-profit organization run by a volunteer board so we want to keep costs and logistics to a minimum.
