What you need to do after attending your first METal event as a guest:
You were invited to one of our events as a guest and now you’re interested in the process of becoming a METal member. METal requires all guests after their first attendance to a METal event to make a decision of becoming a member or not. If the guest chooses to become a member, the process will begin with the METal Trial Program.
The process of becoming a member takes approximately up to three weeks. During this processing time you may continue attending the METal Saturday event as a prospective member (guest). A METal Membership Quality Board has been established to ensure each prospective member meets the quality standards of participating in a METal Membership. It will be required for you, a prospective member, to participate by attending the METal Saturday Events during this Trial period. It is also required for the prospective member to meet with a minimum of five METal Membership Quality Board (MMQB) members during this Trial period (you will be introduced to them). The process for prospective members is listed below. Any invited individual over 21 years of age (non companies) may become a member of METal.
If the Trial period is extended due to a delay in the MMQB’s decision, you may continue attending the METal Saturday Event as a guest at the guest fee rate of $45 until the approval process is completed. If you are not approved you will no longer be able to attend any METal Events for a six month period.
Note: Those Partaking in the Trial Program are not considered METal Members. At all times during the Trial Program, you shall adhere to the Code of Conduct located at the top menu of the METal website (the “Code of Conduct’). METal reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to modify the Code of Conduct upon written notice to you. A notice on your profile shall be deemed proper. We reserve the right to refuse anyone regarding membership, trial program, or event access.
