Terms and Conditions of Membership in ATIXA and Use of Members’ Services
ATIXA wants you to be familiar with the terms and conditions that govern your membership in ATIXA (“membership”) and your access to and use of ATIXA services, websites, and/or other technology (“services”). By joining the association, you agree to be bound by and abide by these terms, including any other policies incorporated by reference. ATIXA reserves the right to revise and update these terms at any time, and any changes become immediately effective when posted on this page. Your continued use of the membership and services indicates that you accept and agree to any changes.
- Membership is open to those who have a demonstrated commonality of interest with Title IX administrators.
- Membership is based on a rolling-year calendar and begins immediately upon receipt of payment and processing by ATIXA. Membership expires after one year. ATIXA reserves the right to increase membership fees at any time.
- ATIXA does not provide any products, training, or event discounts retroactively prior to the membership start date.
- Upon effective date of membership, all membership benefits and access thereto are fully delivered for the entirety of your membership year. Furthermore, it is the member’s responsibility to access member benefits or services of their choosing and ATIXA takes no responsibility for the member’s selection of benefits or services, if any, during the membership term.
- Membership is transferable but is not refundable. ATIXA understands that members may change jobs or institutions during the course of their membership year. A membership is owned by the party who pays for it. A membership purchased by an institution remains with the institution. Individuals may maintain a membership when it was purchased with the individual’s funds.
- Existing members may contact ATIXA at any time at firstname.lastname@example.org or (610) 644-7858 to inquire about upgrading membership at any point prior to the membership expiration date.
- The ATIXA Executive Director, in consultation with the ATIXA Advisory Board as needed, has authority to determine any questions of membership and eligibility. Members will conduct themselves ethically at all times to maintain membership. ATIXA’s Statement of Ethics can be found here. You also agree to use your membership and services only for lawful purposes. Members who engage in fraud or misrepresentation may have their membership voided.
- No member may be active legal counsel against a member institution in litigation unless a waiver is granted by the Executive Director. In the event that such a conflict of commitment arises, the member must inform the Executive Director immediately. Temporary leaves of absence or resignations can be arranged. Pro rata adjustments or membership extensions can be implemented.
- Applicants for membership agree that in the event that a membership registration is not accepted or is later terminated, that damages shall be limited to the amount of the paid value of the membership, and pro-rated from the date of non-acceptance or termination.
