Each time your membership is renewed it is also for a minimum period of 12 months.It is important to note that payment for your membership is always for a minimum period of 12 months, whether it is your first year or a renewal. You will be classed as a Doncaster Chamber Member once your first payment has been received. Until payment is received you will be classed as ‘pending’ and may have limited access to services unless agreed in writing with your account manager. If during your annual membership, a direct debit payment is returned unpaid, then Doncaster Chamber of Commerce and Enterprise will automatically take the balance of the sum due from card details supplied.
Membership automatically ceases on the liquidation, administration or bankruptcy of a member.

3 Cancelling Your Membership
If you wish to cancel your membership you must:
Give 2 full months’ notice prior to your renewal date by emailing email@example.com. Any other form of communication will not be accepted. Cancellations upon renewal will only be accepted once the above notification has been received and acknowledged by the Chamber team. It is important to note that you will remain a member and payments for your current membership year will still be due until your renewal date, in which your membership will cease.
Any payments outstanding following cancellation of membership will still be owed and chased by Doncaster Chamber. Where appropriate, Doncaster Chamber will also seek to reclaim any additional administrational and legal costs associated with recovering outstanding fees due to the Chamber, and will be deemed to be borne by you.
Once you’re last payment has been collected, we advise that you contact your Bank/Building Society and cancel your direct debit to prevent further collections.
Doncaster Chamber of Commerce and Enterprise cannot be held liable for any payments processed due to the failure of a member to cancel a direct debit either with Doncaster Chamber or Bank/Building Society.
It is important to note that if you cancel your membership during the year, we will not refund any membership fee paid in advance and the balance remaining for the full years membership will be due for payment within 30 days of cancellation. For example: if you cancel your membership 2 months after joining or renewal, the remaining 10 months fees will be due for payment within 30 days and no refund will be given. Where appropriate, Doncaster Chamber will also seek to reclaim any additional administrational and legal costs associated with recovering outstanding fees due to the Chamber, and will be deemed to be borne by you.
