Member’s FAQ

SHoWLE is a membership led democratic organization. This FAQ will hopefully answer any questions that come up. This document is a work in progress.

I am a member of the American Humanist Association. Why am I not a member of SHoWLE? (or vis versa)

SHoWLE is a chapter of the American Humanist Association (AHA). We gain some benefit for being a chapter like a tax exemption, services like sending email blasts, and free tabling supplies. Being a member of the AHA doesn’t make you a member of SHoWLE and the reverse is true. Some years ago the AHA had a program where if you joined the AHA through a chapter, the chapter would get a portion of that membership fee and the person would be a member of the chapter too but that program was ended a long time ago. SHoWLE is looking into giving AHA members a steep discount to be a member of SHoWLE. We would like AHA members to donate their time and money locally. Check back here for an update.

Why do you ask for an RSVP for some meetings and events?

While 99% of our meetings and events are free and open to the public, there maybe times when we need a commitment from people to attend a meeting or event and so we will ask you to RSVP. You will not be obligated to attend but some meetings and events won’t happen unless we get more than two or three people to attend – like making reservations to hold a table at a restaurant for example or if we have something planned where the venue or host must know who will attend. RSVPing on the website also gives you an opportunity to put the date on your calendar so you will get reminded closer to the date. RSVPs aren’t tied to if we live stream the meeting or event on Zoom. If the event is not a meeting, like volunteering at a Foodbank, then we most likely won’t be live streaming the event. The event post will let you know if there will be a live stream and we will include the Zoom link and phone numbers on the post so you can join in.

If you have any further questions not answered in this document, login and send us a priority message.
