In order to join a chapter of The Extra Mile Mastermind Group, prospective members must submit a new membership application and obtain approval from the MMG Leadership Team.
There are a maximum number of 15 members per Mastermind Chapter.
Our monthly meetings last for 6 hours. Members need to arrive on time and stay for the entire meeting.
Attendance is critical to the group. If a member cannot attend, they may send a substitute to the meeting. This will not count as an absence. A member is allowed three absences in any rolling 12-month period. More than this and the member is subject to removal by the Mastermind Group Leadership Team.
A substitute can include a trusted colleague, client, friend or family member. They will need to be approved in advance by the Leadership Team. The primary purpose for a substitute is to represent the member. A member may use substitutes up to three times in a 12 month period.
Absences and late arrivals are disruptive for members and the respective session. The Leadership Team may give warnings to members who are consistently late or leave early. If the problem continues, the member may be subject to removal by the Leadership Team.
A maximum of 2 visitors, approved in advance by the Leadership Team, may attend a MMG meeting. A visitor may attend no more than two times in 12 months and will be unable to attend further unless they become Members.
There are no leaves of absence other than for exceptional circumstances. A member may take up to eight weeks medical leave with the Leadership Team’s prior approval if their dues are pre-paid for that period of time and they attempt to have someone ‘fill-in’ during their leave.
It is the member’s responsibility to file a concern with the MMG Leadership team if a visitor in any way conflicts with the outcome, purpose of action of the Group. This should be done before the visitor is approved for membership. If there are no complaints, the Leadership Team will ‘assume their consent’.
In case of problems with a member, the MMG Leadership Team may, at their sole discretion, put a member on probation relating to the member’s business practices or commitment to the Chapter.
Memberships may be revoked for failure to comply with the policies and core values of MMG. The Leadership Team may revoke memberships.
The Leadership Team must agree to the terms outlined in the Leadership Team Agreement in order to hold a position and must go through training before participating.
MMG Membership lists are not to be used for the purpose of soliciting (via e-mail, direct mail or other means) without the prior approval of members.
MMG Policies are subject to change. All proposed policy changes will be reviewed and communicated to members by the Leadership Team.
Other than normal printed materials, members may not use the MMG Intellectual Property (such as logos, trademarks, names, slogans, copyrighted materials) to manufacture, distribute, sell, market, or promote any product or service, or otherwise use the MMG Intellectual Property without obtaining the prior written consent of the Leadership Team. Members must agree to abide by the MMG Branding Standards for any permitted use.
There is an initial registration and annual membership fee as outlined in the current MMG fee tariff. Fees can be paid by cheque or the following cards: VISA, MASTERCARD, DELTA or MAESTRO.
Membership fees are payable 30 days prior to the due date. Members who have not paid by the first day of the month they are due are considered late and will be liable to a £20 late charge. If fees are not paid within 15 days, the member will be officially dropped by MMG
MMG may establish chapters in any community with people interested in co-running or joining a chapter. In addition, MMG reserves the right to open more than one chapter per community.
Fees are non-refundable. A Certificate of Credit will be given, upon request, to members in good standing for the unused portion of their fees. Fees cannot be transferred from one person to another unless the fees were paid by the same company.
A member requesting a transfer from their current chapter to a new chapter will be required to submit a completed new member application to the Leadership Team. In addition, if the member has less than 12 months of paid membership credit, they must submit a renewal payment. Or, if the member has more than 12 months of paid membership credit, no additional investment is required. Upon acceptance into the new chapter, the credit from their previous chapter will be added to their membership in the new chapter as well as the renewal time, if applicable.
MMG has a strict policy on returned cheques. A member has three working days in which to contact the Extra Mile Partnership HQ and resolve the matter. Any returned cheques not resolved within this period will be turned over to collections. All returned cheques will be liable to a minimum £25 returned cheque fee. If a member passes a second NSF cheque, that member will be subject to immediate termination.
The Leadership Team consisting of Paul Stalker, Dawn Stalker and Christopher Humphreys exists to address policy issues relating to MMG. The team’s purpose is to ensure that there is open communication between the membership, chapter leaders and HQ. If you have an issue or concern that you would like addressed by the Leadership Team, please contact them directly.
