Business over Breakfast - Terms & Conditions of Membership

The Following Terms and conditions apply to Business over Breakfast Global operated by:

SIA BoB Latvija


Punctuality

It is important that all members, visitors from our other groups and guests arrive 5 to 15 minutes before the meeting commences. The starting time of each club could vary. Late comers tend to disrupt the flow of the meeting.


Attendance

All members agree and understand that all BoB Global Groups  meet on a Bi-weekly basis and that for BoB Global groups to work, it is important that all members attend the breakfast meetings as often as possible. We understand that every member has a business to run and a life to lead but attendance is crucial to the success of every group. If you can't attend please try to send somebody to stand in for you if possible.


It is important that we know how many members, visitors from other clubs and guests are attending so that we can inform each venue BEFORE we turn up on the day. Please contact either the Chairperson or club steward to inform them if you are unable to attend. The Chairperson will assume that you will attend every meeting unless you inform otherwise. In the event of long term absenteeism, the directors of the above listed companies will decide if a member will be allowed to continue their membership or if they will be asked to resign so that a new member can take over their exclusive position. Should any member have attendance of less than 75% over any given 6 month period or miss 3 consecutive meetings without good reason we reserve the right to terminate their membership. Members who are aware that they will be unable to attend for a greater period than this must  inform the Regional Director as soon as possible. Based upon the circumstances of the upcoming expected absenteeism, the Regional director will then decide if they will hold that member's place open for them or not. No refund of membership fees will be made.


Membership Fees

Members are required to pay a one off registration fee on application to join an existing group or a group in formation. Annual membership fees are payable in advance upon invoice.

Visitors and Guests

Visitors are allowed to visit a BoB Global groups on two occasions before they decide to take up membership. Visitors are allowed to take part in the Referral Generation program .

If a visitor attending a meeting is found to conflict with an existing member, both parties should be notified before the commencement of the structured part of the meeting. The visitor will be allowed to be part of the meeting, however, if there is a serious conflict of profession or services offered, the visitor will be asked to be respectful though out the meeting to the  member and the relationship they will have established with their fellow members. An alternative group will then be sourced (where available) for the visitor to attend in the future

No refunds will be offered in this situation. Multi-disciplinary businesses (for example law firms/Solicitors who have multiple service offerings) wishing to join a club can be represented in either of the following two ways; by buying separate memberships for each discipline, or a single membership where a member may be substituted occasionally by a colleague to present other disciplines. The disciplines must be agreed by the group leadership team and the Regional Director beforehand. Companies may not be represented by more than one employee at the same meeting. BoB Global groups are structured so that a Leadership team made up from the club membership are collectively able to run meetings, administer their group and market the group utilizing the online training and online tools that are provided by BoB Global groups Head Office. This means that once a club has been launched the Area Coordinator/Area Director/Regional Director is not required to attend every club meeting.

It is likely that after a club has officially launched that all members will be asked to setup up a monthly standing order or Direct Debit to apply each months breakfast fees in advance. Any member who fails to pay membership/breakfast fees will have their membership terminated. No refunds against membership will be made in these circumstances. Should any member confirm that they will be attending a meeting and then fail to attend that meeting, we reserve the right to charge for the member for the meeting/s that they missed. Failure to pay could result in the member being suspended or expelled from the group

However, if we do agree to this request, the member will be asked to pay an Administration fee of 50 EUR (or equivalent in other countries). In the event of a member requesting to be transferred between clubs that are operated under licence by a different Licencee, Franchise operator or a club under the control of Head Office an amount equal to the remaining period of membership is chargeable. The transfer of membership from one club to another can only be authorized by the Regional Director, Country Director or Head Office and will only be allowed if there have been significant changes in the member's circumstances.

In this instance the remaining membership will be added to the 12 months membership.
