We are sure you have questions about the EBOSS Group and we have listed a number of the frequently asked questions below:
Since 2019 is the first year we have implemented this policy, we have yet to elect which not-for-profit organizations will be supported this year. The plan is to let the members vote on an organization in December, 2019. Depending on the number of members we have at the end of 2019, we will either support a different organization every 6 months or every year. The one thing that is for certain is the not-for-profit organization will be a Christian based organization.
We are a MEMBERS driven group. We started with a chapter in Indian Trial, NC because we had an eager Chapter Director and over ten people that wanted us to start a chapter there immediately. Accordingly, we met with a coffee shop and set up a schedule for those meetings. Currently, we have members who have expressed interest in starting more chapters in the Charlotte region. In addition, we are exploring options in other parts of North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia.
Because of the online community and EBOSS.Reviews platform as an organizational benefit, we have the flexibility to form new chapters where we have new members joining. This means that if we get a handful of active members in a city, we will work with them to help form a chapter. From there, we are expecting to see a number of members want to branch out and form their own chapter by inviting other business owners and sales people that they know to another location on a different day/time.
If you have an interest in helping us start a chapter in your local area, please let us know after you have become a member.
Yes. Since this is a members' driven group, we are always open to looking at opportunities that will enable our members to build relationships. We recognize that this could mean having larger regional meetings, seminars, etc. that will help bring our members together. At the earliest, our first large event will be in June, 2019 and this depends on the rate at which our membership grows. We will definitely have at least 1 large event in 2019 with plans to add more in 2020.
Since we offer people to attend meetings as guests as many times as they want, we encourage people to learn more about us before they become a member. That said, we do provide all NEW members with a 10-day grace period. During this period they will get a chance to utilize the various benefits provided to members. If, during this grace period, you wish to cancel you membership, we will refund 90% of your initial payment and cancel all payments moving forward. The 10% we do not refund is set aside for a not-for-profit organization. We don't refund this part because we don't believe a not-for-profit organization should be penalized if someone wants to take advantage of some of the online benefits and then cancel their subscription.
Yes. If you wish to pay annually, we recommend you do it through the EBOSS.Reviews website. Everyone who finds the EBOSS Group because they want to utilize EBOSS.Reviews will automatically become an EBOSS Group member. For that reason, you can invest in the reviews software and still get all of the benefits associated with registering through this website.
No. The only way to build relationships is to invest into the relationship. Our group is only interested in having members who want to actively build relationships. We have found that a 6-month membership allows new members enough time to build relationships.
