We understand that there might be some questions remaining for you with regards to the membership! You may find some answers here, but if you feel like this doesn’t answer yours yet, do not hesitate to get in touch with us through our contact form.
Q: What will the proceeds of the membership be used for?
A: Full transparency is key for us, so thanks for asking this! For now, the collected money will be used to finance 1) alumni events (e.g. costs for locations, presents for speakers, drinks, photographers or sponsored social media posts for event promotion) and 2) overhead costs of the alumni team (e.g. bank account & website costs). Naturally, as the alumni community with this membership grows bigger, we want to use the money to keep investing in the growth and fruitfulness of our connections. The money is currently not used to cover any costs concerning the members of the alumni team itself.
Q: How can I unsubcribe for the membership and does it matter in which month I do this?
A: You can unsubscribe by emailing the alumni association at firstname.lastname@example.org a month before your next annual withdrawal is scheduled (which is 12 months after your registration). If you aren’t sure about this timeline or want to check on your account information, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
Q: How does the payment system work?
A: When you sign up via the form, you are directed to a page where you pay your first annual fee (10€) through iDeal. By doing so, you’re giving us your mandate (your agreement) to automatically deduct the annual fee via SEPA incasso in the years to come. Meaning, 12 months after you first signed up, your second payment will automatically be deducted from your account without you ever having to worry about it again 🙂
Q: What will my personal information be used for?
Q: How does the Alumni Association deal with restrictions resulting from COVID-19?
A: We strive to continue organizing events, either online and if possible offline. Currently, we will be organizing online events in the foreseeable future, but we will keep looking out for opportunities to bring alumni together in person. We take the health of our members very seriously and will never organize events if these events pose serious threats to your health and well-being. If you have any ideas for events yourself, please do not hesitate to contact us in order to find out where we can help each other to set something up!
