Group Member's Program
Grow and develop your team with AHBC membership
A Group is a list of AHBC members linked and managed by Group Account Manager (An existing paid AHBC Member). The Group Account Manager is responsible for all Membership Subscriptions and Cowork Plans as required. This means that a business owner can become a member, create a group and add selected staff to gain AHBC member's benefits.
Creating A Group
When creating a Group, a group name will be required. Eg. "The Kelly Gang"
There are two Group Types:-
- Corporate Groups - Cover businesses that sell products or services to generate profits or are government owned or funded. The Group Account Manager covers all Membership & Cowork fees for each member in the group.
- NFP Industry Groups - Cover Not For Profits organisations that support and develop an industry sector or local business community. Click here for further details and eligibility.
To create a Group, use the Online Member's Services Form and Select option "7. Group Admin Panel" followed by "1. Become a Group Account Manager". Check your emails for a Group Creation confirmation email.
Your AHBC Members gain all the rights as if they had applied, excluding the ability to add or manage Cowork Plans.
When your AHBC Members use any paid AHBC service like "Go Coworking", facility hire, business advice or event bookings, the member is directly responsible for any associated cost and not the Group Account Manager.
Managing Your Group
All Groups actions associated with members are completed using the Online Member's Services Form using option "7. Group Admin Panel".
Adding a Member
When you add a member, the member's subscription fee will be directly invoiced to you as the Group Account Manager. (Not applicable to NFP Industry Groups)
Subscriptions can be for 1 year only or set auto-renew until retired.
You can also add or remove Cowork plans for any of your members. Cowork Plans are invoiced monthly and payable by the to you as the Group Account Manager.
Retiring a Group Member
When you retire a Group Member, the member is immediately removed from the Group. There is no refund for any remaining / unused membership period.
The retired Group member will remain as a member with the AHBC until they cancel their membership or not renew their subscription.
Renewal Periods, Plans and Key fobs
Membership Subscriptions are annual and auto-renew until the member is retired by you or if a one-year subscription was selected. Cowork Plans will auto-renew each month until retired or changed by you.
You can add or change Cowork Plans for any of your Group Members at any time.
If key fobs are required they can be sent to you or collected by the member at the centre.
Your Group members receive the same entitlement as other members excluding the ability to manage Cowork Plans.
At any time you can produce an email containing a list of your Group members and their renewal information.
You as the Group Account Manager, will receive annual invoices for each Group Member renewing and monthly Cowork Plans invoices if applicable.
Transfer Of Membership
You can not transfer an existing membership to another person.
