I understand that the YMCA at ACRC requires a minimum of 2 MONTHS of membership paid in full before I can cancel my membership. If my membership dues are paid through credit card or electronic funds transfer, I understand this is a continuous membership plan. I will continue to be charged unless I fill out the Membership Termination form, which can be found on our website, prior to the 26th of the month to stop the next month's bank/credit draft. I understand that Membership dues are drafted on the 1st day of each month. I understand a $15 return fee will be charged for all refused/returned debit cards, credit cards or returned checks for any fees incurred at the YMCA at ACRC in addition to any bank fees associated with the return. I understand that I will be charged membership dues even if I do not utilize the facility and will continue to be charged until I cancel my membership. I understand that all membership rates are subject to change and if and when that happens, I will receive notice four weeks prior to that change. I will then be charged those new rates through my continuous membership plan through my credit card, debit card or electronic funds transfer unless I cancel my membership. I understand it is my responsibility to notify the YMCA of any change in address, bank account information (if utilizing bank draft for payment of dues) or debit/credit card information/expiration date (if utilizing credit card for payment of dues). I understand that the Joiner Fee is a one-time fee as long as I remain an active member of the YMCA at ACRC. If I choose to cancel or discontinue my membership for more than 30 days, a Joining Fee will be charged when I reapply for membership. I understand that canceling my membership will result in forfeiture of any unapplied insurance reimbursement. I understand that membership dues are not subject to refund and that I will be responsible for any outstanding balances before I am able to cancel my membership.
