Membership Terms

Membership terms

When you register as a member, you agree to the following membership terms.

Annual Fee: Members will pay an annual fee of $100, which renews annually each December. Fees can be paid by cash or cheque only. Memberships are not refundable or transferable. Autism Home Base (AHB) reserves the right to suspend, refuse or revoke a membership without reimbursement if terms of agreement are broken. If membership should start after August, the annual fee will be pro-rated to $50 for remainder of the year.

Benefits: Membership includes access to various programs offered by AHB. Participants must be 18 years of age or older. The primary member and their family caregiver/guardian are included under one family membership. Members are entitled to receive notice of meetings and are invited to attend. Each membership shall be entitled to one vote at such meetings. All participating members must complete a registration package.

Caregivers: All members who require support must be accompanied by a family caregiver/guardian who is 18 years of age or older and who will participate in the activity. In the event that a family caregiver is unavailable, paid caregivers may attend as support no more than 10% of sessions. Our family caregivers appreciate opportunities to network and connect with their peers. Paid caregivers are the responsibility of the family and as such will be should be fully briefed about the group and expectations for participation in advance.

Acknowledgement of risks: I understand and agree that there are risks. Both foreseeable and unpredictable, associated with the activities we are about to undertake through AHB and by participating I am exposed to certain risks. I assume the risk and responsibility for any injury, death or property damage resulting from my participation in activities organized through Autism Home Base.

Release and Indemnity: I release, indemnify and hold harmless Autism Home Base and it’s servants and agents, from and against all and any actions or claims which may be made by me or on my behalf or by other parties for or in respect or, or arising out of, any injury, loss, damage or death caused to me or my property whether by negligence, break of contract or in anyway whatsoever.

Media Consent (optional): I hereby grant permission to Autism Home Base to take photos and videos during planned activities of which I may appear in. These photos and videos may be used for promotional use on print and online in public platforms. This includes the website, social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter, and any marketing material to be produced in the future.

Fundraising: Autism Home Base is a family orientated agency. Due to being able to provide a membership experience for $100 annually, members may be asked (required) to participate in fundraising events for AHB. This participation could come in a number of capacities.

Program Development: If there is an activity or event that a member is already participating in, members of AHB are encouraged to come forward with program development ideas. This could provide AHB with the opportunity to help organize this program on a larger scale.
