Online event registrations, membership applications and renewals

SWEP members and guests can register online for upcoming SWEP events and pre-pay the event fee with any Visa, MasterCard or Discover card. Just go to our EVENTS page and click the green REGISTER ONLINE button. Add the event to your "cart" and check-out.

You can also now apply for membership and pay your annual dues online with your credit card. Visit our MEMBERSHIP page to get started.

SWEP-MA has partnered with Click & Pledge, a company specializing in serving non-profit organizations, to provide secure online payment processing for our members' convenience. We're sure you'll like the convenience of this new option we've added.

Note: Credit card transactions processed through SWEP-MA's Click & Pledge's payment processing system occasionally incur an extra $1.00 - $2.00 charge that appears on your credit card statement as a foreign transaction fee. Whether you are charged this extra fee depends on which of Click & Pledge's transaction-processing gateways your credit card company puts the charge through. Click & Pledge is an American company; SWEP-MA is an American organization; and the transactions are conducted solely in U.S. dollars, however neither SWEP-MA nor Click & Pledge charges the fee and neither can prevent it. If you receive a charge for this foreign transaction fee, you should be able to have it reversed by asking your credit card provider to remove it. We apologize for this occasional inconvenience and are working to resolve it.
