Can I pay my membership dues using a debit card?

Our online payment system does not allow for payment by debit card.  It takes credit card only.  However, if you do not have a credit card, or wish to pay by cheque or cash, that can be facilitated via our Membership Coordinator.  Please email the membership coordinator at: peninsulanewcomers@gmail.com.

What is the difference between a funtivity and an activity?

Funtivity is just a play on the word Activity and there is no difference.  

I have lived in the area for more than 3 years, but would still like to join your club.  Is this possible?

There are other local organizations that help women connect with each other and we recommend you review the information under our 'Community' tab.  However, the executive has discretion to consider applicants with special circumstances and may allow such applicants to become members.

How can I add an 'avatar' (ie picture of myself) to my profile?

Select 'Edit Profile'.  In the settings you select Avatar and upload a picture of yourself.  This is useful for other members to put a name to your face and is only visible to members.

May I attend or take part in an event before committing to membership?  

Yes, it is possible to attend a lunch or take part in a funtivity and meet other members prior to deciding if the club is for you.  Please email publicity.pnc@gmail. com with your request.
