MEMBERSHIP AND ORGANIZATIONAL CONSIDERATIONS 

 IN ADDITION TO ACCEPTING THE ROLES, RESPONSIBILITIES AND BENEFITS DESCRIBED HEREIN, UWN WESTERN REGION MEMBERS AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING: 

Any question about qualifying wood sources should be brought to the administrator. Please note: The partner business may also continue to work with traditionally logged timber; however, these products must be kept separate from urban products and do not carry the UWN logo.  

Annual membership is for January 1st through December 31st. Membership fees are determined by the UWN West Board and are due by March 15th. Membership fees will be revisited annually to ensure that they cover ongoing costs while remaining affordable for all members.  

The success of UWN rests on the professionalism and product quality of all of its members. The work of any member reflects on all of the others in the group. The group reserves the right to remove a member from UWN should an issue of professionalism or product quality arise.  

The removal of a member must be approved by a unanimous vote of the UWN West Board and will be done only as a last resort if other interventions are not successful. Urban Wood Network West is an equal opportunity organization.
