All-Access Membership Pass FAQs

What is an All-Access Membership Pass?

An All-Access Membership Pass is an exciting new offering from Supplier Community for 2019. For one low price, you can attend all of our branded events for an entire year. This is an amazing value, seeing that the All-Access Pass costs less than attending two of our Signature Events ($300 per person to attend).

What am I entitled to with my All-Access Membership?

With an All-Access Membership, you are entitled to attend every one of our Supplier Community branded events, including conferences, training courses, online live broadcasts, networking events, and more. Your membership applies only to you – the person who is registered – and is non-transferrable.

How long does my All-Access Membership last?

Your membership is good for a full year from the date you originally register. At the conclusion of that year, the card you used to purchase your membership will be automatically charged again to renew your membership for another year. If you would like to not renew your membership, please contact Kelly Austin at kelly@storeofthecommunity.com.

How do I register for events?

To register for an event with your membership pass, go to an event page as you normally would to register. When you are asked for your contact information, enter EXACTLY the same name and email address you used to originally purchase your membership. Click ‘Proceed to Checkout’. Under Payment Details, it should say Total Due: $0.00. If this is not the case or you run into any problems registering for an event, contact us at amanda@supplier.community or merideth@supplier.community.

I can’t remember my password. What do I do?

Upon purchasing your membership pass, you will be asked to create a Supplier Community account, choosing a username and password for yourself. Be sure to remember these for future reference. If you have an existing Supplier Community account, or forget your password after creating an account, go to the Sign In page. There should be a small link that reads ‘Forgot?’ below the Sign In form. Click that link, enter the email address or username you entered when creating your account, and you should be sent a link to create a new password via email. If you have difficulties signing in or retrieving your login information, contact us at merideth@supplier.community.
