Get out. Make friends. Meet people in NJ.
What are the new membership levels?
On the old NJYP.org website there were two membership levels, Basic and Premium. On the new website (launched May 2009) there are ONLY "Members". If you pay the one-time Membership dues then you will be called a "Member" until you turn 40 or terminate your Membership. Anyone who does not pay the one-time dues will be considered a "Non-Member" and will not have a profile on the NJYP.org website.
I was a Basic/Premium Member on the old site. Now what?
You will need to create a NEW account (new login and new password). You will also need to pay the one-time Membership Dues.
What is the difference between "Member" and "Non-Member"?
Only "Members" can:
* Email other Members (only Members will have accounts so everyone you email will be a real, live person who paid the one-time Membership dues.
* Post and follow forum discussions.
* Post job opening ads and job wanted ads.
* Can RSVP to all of the upcoming events.
* Receive free and discounted "Member" tickets to events.
* And so much more like add other Members as friends, add wall comments, post pictures, etc.
* Do not have accounts or profiles set-up on www.NJYP.org.
* Must pay the Non-Member price for events.
If I am a Member of New Jersey Young Professionals (I paid the one-time dues) and I want to bring a guest to an event what price do they pay?
Guests of Members must buy the non-member tickets. If there is no fee listed and the event is free to the public then can then attend without making a payment. Most often Happy Hours will be free to Members and non-members.
I can’t remember if I paid the Membership dues. How do I find out?
First try to log-in to www.NJYP.org. If you cannot do so, do a search on www.Paypal.com to see if you made a payment. If you still cannot find receipt of payment send an email to Info@NJYP.org
What Age Range does NJYP cater to?
You must be 21-39 years of age.
What happens when I turn 40?
Your Membership will be terminated. Anyone who is 35-50 can join this organization, http://www.njprofessionals.org/
I do not want my full name displaying on the website. Now what?
First sign in to the website. Then, from any page, click Settings (top of the right column). The 3rd line down under PROFILE says "First Name". Consider this your DISPLAY NAME and change it to anything you want then click save at the bottom.
How can I keep my photos from showing up under the "Photos" tab?
From any page go to Settings (upper right) then click Privacy (left) and edit who can see your photos.
My profile page comes up when I Google myself. How can I prevent that?
From any page on NJYP.org click “Settings” on the right or just go here http://www.njyp.org/profiles/settings/editProfileInfo and
Under “Privacy”: Make your profile visible only to friends.
Under “My Page”: Change your url so that your last name is not in it.
Under "Profile": Make sure where it says "First Name" (there are two spots) only your first name or username is showing. DO NOT REMOVE YOUR LAST NAME under the "Profile Questions" or we will not be able to verify your membership. This information is NOT visible on the web.
I cannot attend an event. Can I get a refund?
Due to Paypal refund fees and the large number of tickets we sell "all sales are final" HOWEVER if you bought a Member ticket we have no problem with you selling it to a Member. If you bought a Non-Member ticket you can resell it to a Non-Member OR to a Member. It is up to you to exchange the money and most use Paypal for this.
Once you sell the ticket go to http://www.eventbrite.com, log-in, and you can change the name on the ticket from YOUR name to the BUYERS name. If you do not have a log-in just create one; it will link your tickets to the email you have been using.
To sell a ticket post it here http://www.njyp.org/forum AND on the event page of the event the ticket is for. Someone will buy it; they always do!
Why do you charge for hikes?
Overall there are event fees to cover the costs of the business. Event fees (and membership fees) cover the costs associated with the website, web hosting, newsletter, graphic design, staff, office supplies, internet cable connection, phone line, etc. We wish all these things were free but they are not. If you know how to obtain any of these things for free please let us know. We are always looking for ways to cut costs.
The cost is $20 at the door for hikes as we do not want want people showing up at the door. Parks limit hiking groups to 25 participants so we are afraid if we charged less at the door a bunch of people could show up last minute and put us over that limit of 25.
