Welcome to the new CCNC website! We are committed to making sure it is working for our members and visitors. If you have questions, please email us at [email protected].
Below are some preliminary tips for using the new site.
Membership with CCNC
To enjoy benefits right away, pay online. If this option is not your preferred method of payment, we will accept EFT, Interact e-transfer, or cheque. Benefits will be activated upon receipt of payment.
- Pay online with credit card
- EFT or Interact e-transfer: payment can be sent to [email protected]
- Cheque: please make cheques out to Creative City Network of Canada and mail to:
Creative City Network of Canada
#415 – 402 West Pender Street
Vancouver, British Columbia
V6B 1T6 Canada
If you are renewing membership, please select either pay by credit card OR pay by March 31, 2021 upon checkout.
If you select to pay by March 31, 2021 (EFT, Interact e-transfer, cheque), your membership will be held for approval by CCNC. It may take up to 3 business days to be approved and you will receive a confirmation email once we update your subscription.
The delayed payment option is only available for members in good standing during 2020. If you select this option and were not a 2020 member, we will contact you with further instruction.
Some returning members may notice that their tier has changed. CCNC has restructured the framework of its Municipal and Organizational tiers. In most cases, this will not affect fees.
However, if you have noticed a fee change you would like to discuss, please email [email protected]
Our new website comes with some improvements to membership benefits in 2021 including a Members Portal Discussion Board. The ListServ is no longer in operation.
To access the Discussion Board, you must:
- Be an individual member or belong to a member municipality, band council, or organization
- Have a User Login. If you belong to a member municipality, band council, or organization, ask your membership administrator to add you to the membership team through their Account Management in order to set up your User Login.
Some benefits have changed depending on your type of membership (eg: municipal/band council, organizational, and individual are our three membership types). The majority of benefits remain unchanged, and we have added new benefits.
Returning organizations will notice they have a set number of seats in the Portal that come with their tier. More seats are available, if needed, for $40.00 each.
Returning individual members will enjoy access to all resources in the Library, but will receive 50% off the cost any monotized documents.
The new CCNC website allows 12-month subscriptions, so everytime you renew, you receive a full 12-months of benefits. This is a great upgrade from the January-December model.
We are working hard to make sure there is a valuable and accessible event in October 2021! More information will be announced in spring 2021.
Regional Calls will be a great opportunity to gather virtually in February 2021. Members can register for free. Non-members are welcome also, and registration fees can be applied toward cost of membership should you decide to join CCNC within 30 days of your Regional Call.
Using the new website and Members Portal
When you first register for membership, you will receive two emails. On contains your username and temporary password. The other confirms your purchase of membership and provides a link to begin building your municipal, band council, organizational, or individual membership information.
If your emails have not arrived, please check your Spam folder and make sure to whitelist emails from [email protected] for future important correspondence about your membership. If you have been waiting on an email for more than an hour, please contact us.
Account Administrators will receive two emails upon approval of payment OR approval of delayed payment.*
The first arrives after completing your payment information and contains a username and password – keep this handy.
The other will arrive when payment is received or when the office approves a retuning member’s delayed payment. This email includes your record of purchase and a link to enter your membership information. This directs Administrators to build a Current Members information file. You can chose to have your Municipal, Band Council, Organization, or Individual culture-related work shared on the Current Members page of the website.
*available only to those who were members in good standing in 2020. See How Can I Pay?
Account Administrators can add team members through the Account tab located at the top of the page when logged in, OR through the User Portal. The Account page left-side menu includes a Team link, where you will be able to add to and manage your team.
Municipal Members have unlimited team members able to create a User Account under their municipality.
Organizational memberships come with an initial set number of seats within their membership team. The number of seats organizations are allotted align with their membership tier. To purchase additional seats, select the total desired number of User Accounts you would like at time of registration. Or, you can upgrade your subscription at a later date. Additional seats are $40.00 CAD each.
Individual memberships come with one seat in the Users Portal.
