Membership Refund Policy
1. General Information
The North American Society for Sport History does not allow for the refund of membership purchases unless there are exceptional circumstances. Where exceptional circumstances can be shown to exist, the pro rata amount of the 2010 membership fee not exceeding 6 months may be refunded at the discretion of the NASSH Secretary Treasurer.
2. Exceptional Circumstances
A member may apply for a refund in the case of financial hardship or due to a change in personal circumstances or career change. Exceptional Circumstances do not include the taking of sabbaticals and/or extended service leave. A partner or spouse may apply for a refund within the guidelines of this policy if the death of the member occurs during the 2010 membership period.
3. Overpayment Refund
Where an error has been made by NASSH or a banking facility which results in an overpayment being made, the Secretary Treasurer may, in consultation with the member, refund by either a credit of the overpayment to the membership, or alternatively by check for the full amount of the overpayment. Checks will be sent within 30 days to the members on file address. Where a member is responsible for the overpayment, the amount will be credited to the membership.
4. Terms and Conditions of NASSH Membership Products and Services
NASSH policy only allows services to be provided to members in good standing. If a member fails to pay their membership dues within one (1) month of the due date, the member will not be entitled to the privileges of a NASSH membership.
