Step 1. This membership application is a multi-step process. Please read the steps below before you begin so that you can have the information you need ready when you start. Take this opportunity to assemble the materials and information you’ll need to create your Member Listing.
Step 2. Click the “Create Account” button below to begin. During this step you will have the opportunity to view the Membership Agreement. The Membership Agreement will be considered signed by checking the agreement box, creating the account, and submitting the membership fee. If you are joining as a business entity or industry member you will be asked to select the financial range that best matches the income your business generates from urban wood each year. An Advocate or Student level membership does not require reporting the income range.
Step 3. After you have clicked the Register button, go to your email account. An email was sent to the email address you provided and will contain a link that directs you back to the UWN website to create a password. Occasionally, the email to create the password gets picked up by spam filters. If you don’t see the email in your inbox within 10 minutes you should check your Spam or Junk folder.
Step 4. Log in to your UWN account to create your Member Listing.
On your account Dashboard you will be prompted to create your Member Listing. Your member listing can include a description of your professional background and your logo. The logo graphic must have a 5:30 width to height ratio, must be a .jpg, .png, or .bmp file format, and must be no larger than 1500px X 1050px. If you don’t have a logo, or choose not to upload a logo, a default UWN Member logo will be placed for you. If you’d like to come back and upload your logo at a later date, simply log into your account dashboard and upload your file.
Your member listing also gives you the opportunity to highlight your experience with photos, so collect up any photos you’d like to post.
Don’t forget your social media presence. You have the opportunity to add links directing folks to your social media accounts. You’ll also have the option to Drop a Pin to call out the location of your business on our Directory map to help people find you. If you don’t want your exact location published, no worries, you can opt not to provide the address or specific location.
Step 5. Sit tight while your listing is reviewed by your Chapter Lead. If the Chapter Lead finds additional information is needed you will be notified by email and comments will be posted in your member listing.
Step 6. Once your listing is approved you will be sent an invoice for your first year membership fee. Your listing will be published after your membership fee has been received. Your membership will be placed on a yearly subscription which will renew automatically on your membership anniversary date.
Step 7. You will be contacted by your Chapter Lead for membership onboarding.
