The Cha Cha Club runs on a currency of trust.
But it's still important that you understand the terms of your membership and how to look after the vibe.
These rules define our obligations to you, and your obligations to the Club and its members. To maintain the safety of the space for Club members, and to allow the Club to deliver its services, we're committed to certain guidelines and behaviours, and we hope that you are too. Breaching the Club rules may result in the suspension or termination of your membership, your account being disabled, or other restrictions. The Cha Cha Club withholds the right to make suspension and termination decisions.
About Your Membership

If Your Professional Circumstances Change
If you start working for a research vendor during your membership or you no longer work full-time as a ResearchOps professional, you are obliged to let the Club know so that we can talk about the appropriateness of your membership. All conversations are compassionate and aim to look after the collective needs of the Club. If you no longer meet the membership criteria, the Club withholds the right to end your membership.
