Our monthly classes alone are valued at over $500 USD. But our annual membership is currently only $197. That’s less than an average of $20 a month! What a deal considering our entire portfolio of benefits offered is valued at over $6,000 year.

Why should I auto-renew?
Auto-renew locks you in at your current member price. Yay! So that means, you will continue to pay the same annual rate you paid at the time of your original purchase (even if the price goes up). But if choose to opt-out of the auto-renew, you will need to manually renew and pay the published rate at the time of purchase. Rates typically increase each year. Auto-renew also guarantees that you don’t lose a spot in your FemCity Collective or access to our Member-only benefits by preventing any lapse in your membership.
How do I opt-out [CANCEL] of the auto-renew?
To cancel your automatic membership billing, or to edit your account, please do the following:
Log in at FemCity.com with email and password
Click "Your Account " in bottom right black box (desktop view)
Underneath "Billing" click "view or cancel plan."
A new window will pop up. Click "cancel subscription" to confirm.
Please note: if the option to cancel does not appear in your membership account per above, please email email@example.com with your request to cancel. Your request must be received prior to any automatic billing charges.
How do I edit my membership account?
Log in to your account and edit away!
What happens if I move? Can I attend Collective workshops in a different area?
If there is a FemCity community in your new city, that has an opening, you can totally take a spot. If the FemCity Collective is filled and has a wait list, you may want to start your own FemCity Community. Many of our Leaders have done this option and it helps to not only grow business but make new friends!
What is the difference between a Flagship and a Collective?
Our Flagship communities are larger, typically in metro areas, and generally have hundreds of members. A robust event calendar is planned by the FemCity Flagship president. Flagship events typically require the purchase of event tickets. Luncheons, breakfast events, and pop-up socials are examples of the types of events hosted by our Flagships. Want to attend? All FemCity members may purchase tickets to any Flagship events, anywhere.
Our Collectives are capped at 25 members, making them more intimate and cozy. Under the direction of a local Collective Leader, members meet for a monthly Collective gathering - this our signature blend of networking, business education, and mastermind. The agenda includes a unique theme and beautifully designed worksheet for each month. These workshops are are included at no extra cost. FemCity Collectives are created in a diverse, pro-women environment, and immersed in positivity and gratitude.
I LOVE FEMCITY! IS THERE A REFERRAL PROGRAM [AFFILIATE MARKETING PROGRAM]?

WHAT HAPPENS IF I MISS A FEW COLLECTIVE MEETINGS? DO I LOSE MY SPOT?
We love for our Members to engage and participate regularly. Consistency is one of the ways we believe authentic and robust relationships are formed in business and life. Many of our Collectives have a “wait-list” and as spaces open, we offer these spots to those FEMS. If you stop participating, and it’s been three or more consecutive workshops missed, we may open that spot for a FEM who has been waiting. We have an online collective membership that is designed for FEMS that cannot attend our physical locations.
