Becoming a Member

Post by Spinich » Thu Dec 31, 2009 1:33 pm

I have been on the boards here for a while and decided it's time to pony up.

I emailed the designated person yesterday morning: membership@zombiehunters.org and have not got a reply back. (Sorry if I am being impatient).

I have searched for threads about how to become a member and wound up empty handed. What do I need to do (I assume make a donation).

Let me know, thank you in advance! 8)

Yes, you are being impatient, especially given the time of year. :lol:

To expedite the process, you can find Membership in the ZS store:

http://zombiehunters.org/members/register.php

This will let them collect your 15 clams and get your info to them quickly. Jen will answer questions by email as she has time, which is usually reasonably quickly.

After you send in your info your membership will usually process in 6-8 weeks because they are done in batches. Volunteer staff are like that. :P

(All the above is just an FYI; I'm nobody official, usual disclaimers, yadda yadda.)

Sweet, thanks for the info. 8) I didn't even think to look in the store. Maybe while I am there I can pick up an official ZS kazoo. :wink:

Yep, we are all volunteers here with jobs and social lives and families and stuff. We don't have 24 hour SLA's. :-)

It can take a bit to process your membership, the volunteer who does that usually does them in batches every couple of weeks.

No problem. I actually got her email today when I got back in the office. No worries on the time frame, just wanted to contribute to the cause. I am looking forward to getting more involved!

All paid up. Thanks for the welcome! :)

It will seem like for-evah. You'll start worrying, wondering maybe they lost your info, think maybe you should email someone to find out. You're about ready to send that email, and then, just then when you're about to do it, you will log on and your name will be green and all will be right with the world.

While your at the store check out the cool Tshirts
I get lots of comments on mine!
Usulally something like
"We make... dead things... deader? [LONG PAUSE] ok thats what I thought that said"
Then I get to explain the site and the cause, pass out a business card [then they really look at me weird]

BTW thanks for joining
I'm no one official either but your membership dues and purchases at the store help fund things like the postal match

Hooray my application just went through.

Yay! Mine's here!

Couldn't have come at a better time, either...Had an absolutely horrible day today. This is the first thing to shock me out of my 'stunned depression' expression all day, and is actually making me smile!

Thanks, ZS-membership-approval-process people! :D :D :D :D

New member here. I was wondering if anyone knows
when I can expect to receive my ZS ID#.
Will they email it or do I have to wait for the badge?
I was hoping to register for ZCON this year. Thanks!

Your member ID will come with the badge. As long as you've signed up for membership you should be able to sign up for z-con. Drop Kyle a PM and he can give you any special instructions.

6 weeks is getting close to our deadline for getting them out. You can expect it soon.

Membership questions go to membership@zombiehunters.org but z-con questions can come to me directly. Although, if you bought a membership already, we will have it on file and it'll get applied. Just put a zero (0) in as your membership number. You'll get contacted if we have any trouble matching it up.

Thanks!
