Congratulations on your decision to become an SCN Member. With membership comes a great deal of benefit. This following outlines the details of your membership perks as well as expectations as a member.
SCN Unlimited Member
SCN+ or SCN Plus Member
SCN Member or Basic Membership
Member Dues and Good Standing
In order to enjoy the benefits of an SCN Membership, a member must be deemed in Good Standing. To be in Good Standing, a member must be current on their payment of dues, either monthly or annually. If a member fails to pay dues at the time of a renewal (defined as any point their membership was set to renew, such as monthly or annually), they will be immediately deemed a member that is Not in Good Standing. SCN reserves the right to revoke access to all benefits. That member then has 60 days to remedy the missed membership dues. If after 60 days the member has not remedied their negative balance or missed payments, the member will be removed from SCN Membership.
Reactivation of Prior Membership
If a former member wishes to rejoin as an SCN Member, they may, with the approval of the SCN Committee and Executive Team, be granted the ability to re-join SCN as a Member. There is a $500 re-activation fee due regardless of the time elapsed since the member departed.
New Membership and Probation
New members are welcomed at any time through an application process. The application is meant to provide a mutual understanding between SCN and the prospective member of the benefits of membership.
A new member is initially on probation and must complete the following prior to being considered a full member in Good Standing. A new member must complete the following to graduate from a probationary status:
- Pay a $2,500 new member initiation fee
- Complete New Member Curriculum on the SCN Website
- Attend an Annual Summit and New Member Workshop
- Be an SCN Unlimited Member for at least one year (this criterion is satisfied immediately if the SCN Unlimited Membership dues are paid in full).
All benefits are immediately available to SCN Members in Good Standing unless otherwise noted in this document. All membership perks and benefits are to add value to the Member’s businesses and lives. There is no remuneration or compensation back to the member for unused benefits. It is up to the Member to use the benefits made available to them at the time of membership. For example, an SCN Unlimited member has the opportunity to attend the SCN Annual Summit for free as a benefit of their membership. Should the individual decide not to attend the Annual Summit, they have chosen not to use one of their membership benefits. As such, there is no refund or compensation for unused benefits. Similarly, unused benefits do not roll over into a future year.
Private Facebook Group
All SCN Members will have access to the private or closed Facebook Group. You must provide your Facebook Username and/or email address to be granted access.
SCN Website, Member Profiles
A perk to all SCN Members is the customizable profile on the SCN website. The SCN website is a highly searched, and high ranking website that will add validity and authority to all members.
Receive Call for Speaker Requests
All members will receive relevant notifications for requests for speakers as a membership perk.
Annual Payment Discount
If any member pays their dues in full in a one-time lump sum instead of monthly, they will get a discount. Currently the discounts are as follows for Annual, lump sum due payments: 20%, 10%, 5% for Unlimited, Plus, and Basic members respectively.
Participate in Live SCN Masterminds
All SCN Members are permitted to participate in live SCN Mastermind sessions via Zoom or another web conferencing tool.
New Member Referrals
A current member in Good Standing and not on Probation may refer another member to SCN. The current rate for a referral is $200 in cash (mailed in the form of a check). Members get a referral bonus bump based on their membership tier: 2x, 1.5x, and 1x for Unlimited, Plus, and Basic members respectively. The same applies to a Sponsoring Partner referral. Currently the base referral for a Sponsoring Partner is $300.
Annual Summit Discounts
The Annual Summit passes and discounts are a benefit of membership. If they are not redeemed, there is no refund or monetary compensation. To be eligible for the discounts or free passes, a member must either pay for their membership in annual installments (lump sum) or have been a monthly recurring member for at least 10 months to receive the benefit. A member can only receive a maximum of one Annual Summit benefit per calendar year. These deals cannot be stacked, traded, transferred, or sold. Currently the Annual Summit discounts are as follows: free, 50% off, 25% off for Unlimited, Plus, and Basic members respectively. This discount only applies to the member’s admission to the conference.
SCN Unplugged Discounts
The SCN Unplugged passes and discounts are a benefit of membership. If they are not redeemed, there is no refund or monetary compensation. To be eligible for the discounts or free passes, a member must either pay for their membership in annual installments (lump sum) or have been a monthly recurring member for at least 6 months to receive the benefit. A member can only receive a maximum of one SCN Unplugged benefit per calendar year. These deals cannot be stacked, traded, transferred, or sold. Currently the SCN Unplugged discounts are as follows: free, 50% off, 25% off for Unlimited, Plus, and Basic members respectively. This discount only applies to the member’s admission to Unplugged. Should there be multiple SCN Unplugged events hosted in one calendar year, a member may attend multiple events. For subsequent events, the discounts are as follows: 50% off, 25% off, 10% off for Unlimited, Plus, and Basic members respectively.
SCN Members are encouraged to bring significant others, partners, and family members to SCN events. The +1 discounts apply to all SCN events. The discount applies to the standard admission ticket to any of our SCN events and cannot be combined or stacked (i.e. the discount is not in addition to an early bird discount). This will be a guest admission pass and not a member pass, so some sessions may not be available to the +1. Currently the +1 discounts are as follows: 75% off and 50% off for Unlimited and Plus members respectively. There is no +1 discount for Basic members.
SCN Blog Posts
The SCN website is a popular website in the dental industry and receives high numbers of unique visitors every month. The opportunity to publish to the SCN blog is a great honor and could be noticed by meeting planners, scouts, publishers, dentists, DSOs, and more. SCN Unlimited Members can post to the blog an unlimited number of times per year. All posts are subject to editing and approval based on current article guidelines. SCN+ members may post up to 4 articles per year.
SCN Archives and On-Demand Coaching Library
Both SCN Unlimited and SCN+ members receive digital access to the on-demand coaching library through the SCN website. This will be continually supplied with new videos, tips, and tricks.
SCN Mastermind Archives
All SCN Members have access to participate online with the SCN Masterminds live via webconference. However, only SCN Unlimited and SCN+ members receive digital access to the archives through the SCN website.
Perks and Discounts with Partners
SCN Unlimited and SCN+ members will have access to an array of partnership and affiliate discounts and benefits. These benefits are often contingent on SCN’s partnerships with third parties and are subject to change without notice.
Dentistry Speaks Podcast Interview
Exclusive to SCN Unlimited members is the opportunity to have an entire Dentistry Speaks podcast episode revolve around the member and the member’s business. Content must be relevant to dental speakers, consultants, influencers, and meeting planners.
Social Media Takeover
SCN’s Social Media is followed by meeting planners, scouts, sponsoring partners, and other dental speakers and consultants. SCN Unlimited members will have the opportunity to have a one day, Social Media Takeover each calendar year. The goal is to showcase the speaker, consultant, podcaster, or KOL, doing what they do every day. SImultaneously, this provides valuable content for followers and encourages SCN’s followers to follow the featured member.
Access to Meeting Planner Database
SCN has a robust database of meeting planners spanning over three decades. SCN Unlimited members will have access to the database as a way to grow their business.
Active Promotion of SCN Members
SCN is working to actively promote its members and their successes to meeting planners and the dental industry as a whole. This unique benefit is available exclusively to SCN Unlimited Members. SCN will use its resources to more actively promote Unlimited members to potential speaking opportunities.
Upgrading and Downgrading Membership
A member may upgrade or downgrade their membership level at any time. If upgrading, the increased dues will be charged immediately and the member will have immediate access to all new perks granted in that membership level. If a member chooses to downgrade their membership, they will still have all access and benefits to their membership until their current renewal period expires, at which point, the lower membership tier and its benefits will become effective.
Termination of Membership
At the time of the termination of one’s membership, either voluntary or involuntary, no refunds or monetary compensation will be provided to the member. SCN reserves the right to terminate one’s membership for any reason.
