Membership Frequently Asked Questions

Are there memberships available/how long is the waitlist?
The number of memberships available each year depends upon the number of non-renewing members, which varies each year. Memberships are offered on a first-come, first-served basis from the waitlist of applicants, so your best chance of being offered a membership is to apply as soon as you know you would like to join. We cannot provide you with an estimate of your place on the waitlist unless you have applied.

If I apply for membership, when will someone contact me?
We try to process applications as quickly as we receive them, so that applicants will have some idea of where they stand with respect to the waitlist or a membership offer. In the past, this has generally taken from 1 – 5 days, although at certain times of year it may take more time. FXE has a volunteer board, which means that the serving members fit these tasks in around their other day-to-day activities.

We may be moving part way through the summer. Can I get a refund if we do?
Any requests for refunds will be considered on a case-by-case basis by the board, and will depend upon the timing of the request and departure. Please see the Membership Policies document for more details.
