HOW WILL THINGS CHANGE ON FACEBOOK FOR NON-PAID TO PAID MEMBERSHIPS?
We started removing individuals from the main UTAH WOMEN’S NETWORKING FACEBOOK PAGE 10.10.16. Access to this page will be exclusive to Community, Resource and Business Members. The newest individuals welcomed to the page will have until the end of the year (12.31.16) to sign up for a membership. From now on, someone new to the group will receive a six-month Trial Membership (minus a directory listing) and a VIP Pass to AN upcoming P.O.W.E.R. Session. See our benefits spreadsheet.
THERE WERE INTRODUCTORY RATES, WHEN DID THE PRICING CHANGE?
Introductory memberships were offered for $39, $69 and $99 per year. As of early November 2016, memberships increased to $59, $89 and $119 per year. As of November 2017, memberships were streamlined to have only two levels of individual membership and increased options for companies with employees that want to take advantage of our awesome training opportunities.
WHY SHOULD I START PAYING FOR SOMETHING THAT HAS BEEN FREE?
WHAT WILL BE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE UTWNG MAIN FACEBOOK PAGE AND THE UTAH WNG BUSINESS RESOURCES PAGE?
IF I CHOOSE NOT TO BE A MEMBER, WILL I STILL BE ABLE TO ATTEND EVENTS?
WEBSITE ISSUES? WHERE CAN I ASK QUESTIONS?
The main function of the website is to be a resource not a marketing tool. We created it to be a one-stop location for upcoming events, a directory of current members, and basic information about the UTWNG. We upgraded the hosting to improve the speed, but the directory and member logins can slow things down sometimes. Send any concerns or questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. We want this to be a valuable tool for our members with options for increased event visibilty and improved search options for inbound links for our business member websites.
WHO SHOULD BE A COMMUNITY/NON-PROFIT MEMBER?
WHAT ABOUT THE RESOURCE MEMBERSHIP?
We are phasing out this level of membership. Those who renewed this level of membership prior to November 1, 2017, will still have those benefits for the coming year.
WHO SHOULD BE A BUSINESS MEMBER?
WHAT IF I HAVEN'T OR CAN'T ATTEND EVENTS?
We are working on extending our reach of events through our Area/County Connectors. We will be hosting events in the morning and late afternoons during the last week of the month. Should you want to be a host and create a Connecting Group that better meets your schedule, please let us know. Business Members are eligible to be an Area/County Connector.

WHAT DIFFERENTIATES THE UTWNG FROM OTHER GROUPS?
You mean besides the quality of our events and the awesome food at our luncheons? The answer would be our dynamic and smart-ass ambassadors and our true passion to support our members personal and business growth. We have raised over $30,000 for local non-profits and small business grants for women.
DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING NEW PLANNED IN THE UPCOMING YEAR WE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT?
