I'm having a difficult time registering for memberhip on the website, are there alternate ways to sign up?


Some Google Chrome users have reported challenges with registering for membership. If you have the option, we recommend trying an alternate browser like Internet Explorer / Microsoft Edge, or Firefox.
You can also email us at mcwenetwork@gmail.com, and one of our team members will be able to manually set up your registration and respond with a direct link to set up your personal profile.




Do I have to be a member of MCWEN to participate in programming?


No, you do not have to be a member of MCWEN to participate in programming. However, becoming a member is much more cost-effective. For example, the benefits included in our lowest level of membership are valued at $620. That's over 75% in discounts, and the higher the membership level, the more benefits you receive!




Is membership automatically renewed?


No, membership is not automatically renewed. After completing their profile, a member may change their settings to automatically renew. Otherwise, nearing the end of the membership period, a member will receive a message reminder that they are due for renewal, and can manually renew at that time.




Can membership be paid in monthly installments?


Currently, memberships cannot be paid in monthly installments. If there are enough requests for this option, we may consider it in the future.




What discounts are available for membership?


We offer two discount options: student and military. If you are a current student, or military member (active or non-active), you are eligible for 25% off any level of membership.
To redeem, email mcwenetwork@gmail.com.




Are memberships refundable?


Memberships are currently nonrefundable.




How can I maximize my membership benefits?


Upon activation of your membership, you should have received a membership packet which details instructions for maximizing your membership. If you did not receive a packet, please email us at mcwenetwork@gmail.com to receive it. Additional details about membership benefits can also be found at https://www.mcwen.org/membersonly.
