ABOUT MEMBERSHIP & FEES
SME Alliance is run for its members and we strive to support them as best we can whilst they deal with the issues they have been left facing due to banking and regulatory misconduct. We run entirely on our membership fees, donations and contributions from our Directors – none of whom take a Salary from SME Alliance. We ask that our members pay a monthly membership fee of £5 a month or annual membership of £60 per year. Your membership fees help cover the costs of hosting our meetings and networking events, our website costs and the general administration. Without these we would not have been able to exist as an organisation.
What your membership includes:
·Unlimited access to our Members Area online where you will find our members library, forum and exclusive members news and updates
· You and a +1 will be invited to all of the meetings and events that we host. ⁺These are either entirely free for our members or in rare cases where we have to charge an entry fee, you will receive a members’ discount.
·Receive regular email updates and newsletters with all of the latest information on what we and our members have been achieving.
·You will be connected to a network of other members who have also suffered/are suffering through similar circumstances and difficulties where you can share your information together and support one another.
What we ask from you as a member:
·Be involved – We can’t do what we do without you and we are committed to getting SME’s voices heard where it matters and where we can make the changes needed to protect ourselves, so please do support us on our social media, come to our meetings, use our website and be as pro-active as you can. We are all stronger together.
·Be considerate – We are a very small office for such a large group now, with nearly all of the work carried out in the office and meetings done on a voluntary basis. Our phone line is constantly on the go and we receive hundreds of emails a day. Whilst we do everything we can to ensure that we respond to as many, if not all the calls and emails we receive, we would ask that our members be patient with us whilst we work with everyone and maintain the running of SME Alliance on a day to day basis.
