1.3. Annual Membership fees – By completing The PA Hub annual membership form, the applicant agrees to pay either a one-off annual fee in full for their membership type or a monthly annual fee. The Member agrees to pay the annual monthly fee according to its membership type shown clearly on the Membership form and in accordance with the Membership Matrix available here https://www.thepahub.co.uk/membership/. When signing up to a pay monthly membership you are agreeing to pay a minimum of 12 equal monthly instalments from the month your membership commenced. All Memberships are for a minimum 12 month period and renewable each year thereafter.

1.4. One off annual Membership fees must be paid in full within 14 days of the invoice date in order to access any Membership benefits.

1.10. No part of the membership fee can be refunded once payment is made. Your fee covers all events in accordance with the Membership Matrix ‘What does the membership include?’ available here https://www.thepahub.co.uk/membership/

1.11. Once renewal instructions have been received and payment has been made within the payment terms, the Members benefits are reinstated in full immediately. Memberships are for a minimum 12 month period and renewable each year thereafter. Part years or non-attendance at events are non-refundable.

1.12. Membership Subscription Cancellation Policy. As membership subscriptions are calculated to provide services for a whole year, members can only cancel their subscription during a 14 day “cooling off period”. After 14 days, membership is strictly non-refundable and non-cancellable. Cancellations are not permitted if it falls within the 12-month membership subscription.

1.13. No part of the membership fee can be refunded once payment is made. Your fee covers all events in accordance with the Membership Matrix ‘What does the membership include?’ available here https://www.thepahub.co.uk/membership/. No refund can be made for events not attended within the membership year.

1.15. Membership renewal reminders will be sent to existing Members two months prior to the membership renewal date.

1.16. Rising Star membership is for aspiring administrative staff who would like to become PAs; this scheme is open to Group memberships and offers the opportunity to join The PA Hub membership for 1 year at no charge – limited to 1 place per company in each region per annum. The Rising Star Scheme is for 12 months only and cannot be renewed. If the Rising Star becomes a PA within their one year scheme they would then be entitled to join the PA Hub as a PA member within their company membership and a new participant can be chosen to join the Rising Star Scheme.

1.17. All levels of membership and membership entitlements are outlined in accordance with the Membership Matrix available here https://www.thepahub.co.uk/membership/. No refund can be made for events not attended within the membership year.
