The Process

You will do some paperwork which includes a Membership Application, a Liability Release, a Confidentiality Agreement, and an understanding of our financial policies.

Once you have chosen and paid for your membership (click to jump to Membership Types) you will be given a New Member Orientation which covers the APEX rules and basic etiquette, and a tour of the Club.

Within a few days, a New Member Email will be sent to you that includes some things that will make you comfortable in your new club.

When Are Applications Approved?

New member applications are normally approved at the following month’s Executive Committee meeting. The APEX Executive Committee vote upon all new membership applications per APEX Policy. During your “Temporary Membership” status, you will be afforded all of the rights and privileges of Membership. You will be contacted within 45 days if your membership is not approved for any reason.

If You Would Like More Information

If you would like more information before joining, please attend one of our “Open to the Community” events. You can see them on our calender color coded in purple. These events include the APEX Munch, The APEX BBQ/Open House, and occasional classes.

There are also support opportunities called Special Interest Groups. that are open to non-members. These discussion groups are FREE to ALL consenting adults in the community, no APEX membership is required. If there is a subject you are interested in, you are welcome to attend.

Renewing your APEX Membership

You can do this at the door. We ask you to verify the information we have on file, sign on the “renewal” page, pay for your option, and you’re good to go! It will take just a minute or two.

If you lost your plastic key tag, there is a $5.00 charge to replace it. If you aren’t in our current system, you will need a new Orientation because that means your orientation/membership is prior to 5/2012. The good news is that while you will have to go through orientation, for your trouble you will get to do the New Member Trial if you want it!

If your Membership has been expired more than 2 years, you will probably want to see the current video. Things have changed!

Membership Options

There is a New Member Trial which gives you access to the club for 30 days while you get to know us. It covers all events (except noted special events). Once your 30 day trial is over, you can choose one of two options for your membership.
All Access: A flat fee which allows you access to all events at the club (except noted special events, or various charges like minimal “material fees”.)

-Or-

Pay-Per-Event: Which means you pay a small annual fee and pay for the events that you attend. Prices for Pay-Per-Event Members are listed on the APEX Calendar.

Couple’s Memberships

APEX does not offer a “couple’s” membership option. We all meet at APEX as equals, and no relationship style gets preferential treatment. Offering a “couple’s” membership would mean that couples are valued more than singles, poly families, triads, or any other relationship type, and that just isn’t what APEX is about.

Back To Top

Gendered Pricing

APEX does not offer special pricing based on genders (or lack of gender). Everyone is welcome at APEX and no gender (or lack of gender) is any more valuable than another, and we don’t need to engage in invasive conversation about your chosen gender role in order for you to be welcomed at APEX. Giving preferential treatment based on gender (or any other construct or label) is just now how we work.

Guest Policy

APEX Members are not entitled to a guest or a +1 at APEX Events. Everyone needs their own membership. There is an Annual Guest Pass availble to our Annual All Access Members. You can read more about that on the Membership Type page.

What do APEX Membership Cards Look Like?

Our Membership cards are plastic cards that fit on your key chain with your name/expiration date on one side, and a bar code on the other. Please DO NOT give your Membership Dues to anyone who does not exchange that with a card fitting this description. Memberships are only done at our location unless special arrangements have been made through contact@ArizonaPowerExchange.org.
