Free members can cancel their membership at any time through the membership portal or by contacting [email protected]. General members may elect to upgrade their free membership to a premium membership at any time through the membership portal.
Premium Membership is billed annually and commences on the date of sign-up unless otherwise noted. All premium members will be billed once a year at the set membership price (currently $350, including applicable tax/fees). Premium membership pricing, availability, service delivery timelines, and member benefits are subject to change.
Though members may elect to terminate their participation in FBL Premium Membership programming or downgrade their membership to the free option, membership fees are nonrefundable. Members choosing not to fully explore the benefits of membership, participate in members-only experiences, or attend events does not constitute grounds for early cancellation or a refund in full or in part.
Premium memberships will be automatically renewed. Members will be notified 30 days in advance of their membership renewal and their form of payment charged for the following year. Members have the option to opt-out of auto-renewal at the time of signup and can always change this setting, downgrade their membership, update their form of payment or make other profile-level changes in their membership portal or contact [email protected].

Providing incomplete or incorrect credit card information may result in the delay or decline of your enrollment. For information regarding how we keep your payment information secure, please see our Privacy Statement.
The original credit or debit card used to sign up for membership will be auto-charged after one year of membership unless members opt-out of auto-renewal. Members are responsible for changing or updating card information if it has changed since the subscription date to our services. Our credit card processor Stripe will work directly with banks to keep your account information updated in the event your physical card gets replaced and the number, expiry or CVC code change.
