Q: Do I get instant access?
Stripe, using a credit card gives you instant access. On-line bank payments are processed manually, allow up to a week.
Q: Can I pay for Conference and NZWCS Membership at the same time?
No. Conference is a separate joint venture with it's own bank account. We suggest that you have two payees set up on internet banking - NZWCS and NZWCS Conf.
Q: What is the cost of membership?
The below fees are inclusive of GST
|Corporate Account||$276||(excellent value as it gives access for up to 20 staff)|
|Corporate Membership||0||uses a coupon system and is free for staff.|
Q: Should we enrol as a Full Member or as a Corporate Account?
Full Membership gives you the right to vote at the AGM.
If you have five staff or more, then a Corporate Account is a great deal. When you apply for membership an invoice is auto-generated and emailed to you.
Note that if you choose to utilise the Corporate Account option, a nominated person will need to forward all NZWCS correspondence to each of your nominated staff members.
Q: How do I get my membership number to receive discounts for the Conference?
Look for your membership number on membership renewals you receive from NZWCS, or log in to view.
Q: Is it an annual subscription?
Yes, anniversary is your application date.
Q: Can I get an invoice with purchase order?
Yes, the membership application process includes space for Purchase Order Numbers. Forward the email/Invoice to your employer. Membership is activated once paid (you will receive an email when processed)
Q: Where is my receipt?
Once your payment is confirmed, the Invoice Status changes to Paid, thus becoming a receipt, it is automatically emailed to you.
Q: I've forgotten to pay my membership and now I can't log in to renew, what do I do?
1. Ask to have your details deleted and start afresh. This however will disadvantage you if applying for scholarships to attend conference or other courses and events.
2. Ask to have your subscription date temporarily altered so you can then log in and update your details and pay. Your renewal date will be back dated which gives you continuous membership.
Q: Which person should be entered as the Corporate ACCOUNT?
We suggest the Education Co-ordinator of the organisation has the Corporate Account membership in their name. Please make the USER NAME your Organisation name.
Q: Do my staff get emailed directly?
Emails are sent to the Corporate Account holder (as the employer) and this person disseminates the information to the staff registered as NZWCS Corporate Members. Please be sure to add
Please select your area as being Nation Wide if you span across more than one area.
Q: How do staff log in for free?
Once you have registered, paid and been approved, you will receive a Coupon Number to give to staff. This Coupon reverts the charges to zero. Staff will get a renewal reminder when subs are due again.
Q: How do I change from Full Membership to Corporate Membership?
Log in as normal, under Membership select the tab “Apply for Membership” See the SIGN UP button in the Corporate Membership box (have your Corporate Coupon Code ready to enter so the fee changes to zero)
