Yes, most GABA events are also available to non-members for a (higher) fee. You will find this information on the description of the event. We encourage you to become a GABA member – aside from free or reduced fee events, there are many more benefits to gain, and you will support the German-American community.
We only accept written cancelations of event registrations made at least 3 business days prior to the program. To receive a refund, contact us, use the subject “Events” and add in Comments “Cancelation Event on MM/DD/YY”. Cancelation is effective as of the date the email was received. For more detail, please refer to GABA’s Registration and Refund Policy.
In most cases, you will find the login information in your registration confirmation email towards the bottom. We will usually also send you a reminder with your login information on the day before or the day of the event. If you have several email addresses, please also check the inboxes of your other emails. If you still cannot find the information you are looking for, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Events at GABA, virtual or in-person, bring together a large group of professionals who are interested in the topic of the event. We can work with you so that the topic and the format works well for the target group you aim to reach – as long as it is relevant for the German American business community. You can learn more here and contact us directly.
Membership (General Questions)
You can always participate in our events and take advantage of the built-in networking opportunities (which we also offer in most online events). If you are a member, all GABA NorCal events are free or discounted. Depending on your membership or sponsorship level, you have additional options through promoting your thought leadership, products, or services, and get additional access to exclusive groups or via a personal relationship to a board member.
There are several possibilities: your membership may have expired, you are a member of another GABA chapter, you are registered for the membership under a different email, or as a company member, your name is not entered in our database. Please contact us.
You can upgrade your membership even if you have time left on your existing membership. In most cases, we will be able to deduct the pro-rated remainder of your existing membership contribution from the new fee. Please send us a note.
