Membership Renewal Process
Now that our membership applications are electronic, this year’s renewal
process will be different than in the past. You will be able to renew your
membership much more quickly, however, there is a series of steps that need
to happen in the background that you should be aware of.
1. On June 6, after our last meeting of the year, all members’ accounts will be
reset to “Inactive”. All of your personal information will still be in the database,
however, until you renew you will not be able to access the “Members Area” of
2. Right after we reset the accounts, you will receive a Renewal Notice from us.
This email will contain a link that will take you to the WBN site and display a
secured renewal page, pre-filled with all your information.
3. Simply confirm or update your membership data, add your payment
information, and click on “Submit”.
4. In 2-3 days, once your payment has been processed and your account reset
to “Active”, you will receive a membership confirmation and your receipt by
email, and again have full access to the website.
If you have any questions of feedback please send and email to Kim at:
[email protected] Thanks very much.

A BIG THANK YOU TO
Sue Hosang of Weekenders. I’m new to Peterborough and the WBN and haven’t
been able to make it out to many meetings. This past meeting, I was finally able
to work out childcare and happily made my way through the rain to the meeting.
When I got to the Holiday Inn, not only was I completely soaked but I discovered
that I had left my wallet at home. Not knowing quite what to do I just wondered
over to the displays and found myself telling my sad story to Sue Hosang.
Without blinking an eye she took out her wallet, gave me ten dollars and told
me to get myself a glass of wine. Thank you Sue and all of you WBNers for your
generosity and welcome.
