What is a Membership Contract?

A membership contract is a legal agreement between a membership site or organization and a member. The membership contract outlines the rights and responsibilities of both parties as they enter into a partnership where the membership organization provides some service of benefit to the member, and often the member provides monetary compensation in the form of membership dues or fees.

Membership contracts may include things like how long a membership term is, whether it renews and how a member can renew it, responsibilities of the membership organization or site to its member, and what happens when the contract is terminated. Membership contracts are used to govern an individual's membership to an organization and help both understand what is expected of them.

Common Sections in Membership Contracts

Below is a list of common sections included in Membership Contracts. These sections are linked to the below sample agreement for you to explore.

Exhibit 3.13 Subscription Agreement

 

SUBSCRIPTION AGREEMENT

 

The attached Investor Questionnaire (“Questionnaire”) and this Subscription Agreement (the Questionnaire and this Subscription Agreement being collectively referred to herein as the “Agreement”) is made as of the ____ day of August 2004 by and between Glyconix Corp., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), and the undersigned (the “Investor”, and collectively with all other investors, the “Investors”). Before executing this Agreement, the Investor read the Executive Summary that the Company provided to each Investor.

 

BACKGROUND

 

The Company and the Investor are executing and delivering this Agreement in reliance on the exemption from securities registration afforded by Regulation 506 under Regulation D promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “1933 Act”), and/or Section 4(2) of the 1933 Act.

 

The Company is offering to sell to the Investors _______ units (the “Units”) for a purchase price of $____ per Unit (this offering, the “Offering”), each Unit consisting of one share of common stock, par value $.01 per share, of the Company (the “Common Stock”; each such share, a “Share”) and a redeemable common stock purchase warrant exercisable for one share of Common Stock at an exercise price of $____ per share (each such warrant, a “Warrant”; each share issuable upon exercise of a Warrant, a “Warrant Share”).

 

The Investor wishes to purchase Units, on the terms and subject to the conditions of this Agreement.

 

The Investor and the Company therefore agree as follows:

 

1. Purchase. The Investor shall purchase from the Company the number of Units stated on the signature page of this Agreement for the purchase price (the “Purchase Price”) stated on the signature page of this Agreement (the Shares and Warrants comprising the Units being purchased by the Investor and the Warrant Shares issuable upon exercise of the Warrants being purchased by the Investor, the “Securities”).

 

2. Payment; Escrow. The Investor shall pay the purchase price for the Units being purchased by the Investor by wiring immediately available funds in United States Dollars to Meister Seelig & Fein LLP (the “Escrow Agent”), in accordance with wire instructions provided by the Escrow Agent, those funds to be held with aggregate Offering proceeds in accordance with the terms of an escrow agreement between the Company, each Investor, and the Escrow Agent in the form attached as Exhibit A (the “Escrow Agreement”). If the aggregate Offering proceeds equal or exceed $______ prior to midnight at the end of August 31, 2004 and the Company has received and accepted completed subscriptions therefor from all Investors, (1) the Escrow Agent shall deliver to the Company in accordance with the terms of the Escrow Agreement the aggregate Offering proceeds and (2) the Company shall deliver to the Investor the Shares and the Warrants comprising the Units purchased by the Investor. If those aggregate proceeds do not equal or exceed $500,000 prior to midnight at the end of August 31, 2004 or if the Company has not advised Escrow Agent that it has received duly completed subscription documents from all Investors, then the Escrow Agent shall in accordance with the Escrow Agreement reimburse the purchase price to the Investor, this Agreement shall be terminated, and the Company shall not be obligated to sell Units to the to the Investor.


3. Ancillary Documents. Concurrently with the Investor’s signing of this Agreement, the Investor is also signing a copy of the Escrow Agreement, the questionnaire portion of this Agreement (the “Questionnaire”), and a stockholders agreement in the form attached as Exhibit B (the “Stockholders Agreement”). The Investor also acknowledges receipt of the form of Warrant attached hereto as Exhibit C.

 

4. Representations by the Company. The Company hereby represents to the Investor that:

 

(a) The Company is duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the State of Delaware and has all requisite corporate power and authority to conduct its business as described in the Executive Summary.

 

(b) The Shares have been (and the Warrant Shares will be, presuming due exercise by the holder in accordance with the Warrant) duly and validly authorized and, when issued in accordance with this Agreement (or, with respect to the Warrant Shares, when issued in accordance with the Warrant), will be validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable and issued in full compliance with all applicable laws, including federal and state securities laws, and without violation of any preemptive rights, and the Investor will acquire good and marketable title to the Securities, free and clear of any lien but subject in all respects to the Stockholders Agreement.

 

(c) As of the date of this Agreement, not taking into account the issuance of any Units, the authorized capital stock of the Company consists of 40,000,000 shares of common stock and 5,000,000 shares of preferred stock. There are currently 10,600,000 shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding. The Company has adopted a stock option plan, under which the Company may grant options exercisable for up to 1,500,000 shares of Common Stock. No shares of stock are held in the treasury of the Company. There are no options, warrants, or other contracts to which the Company is a party relating to the issuance, sale, or transfer of any equity securities or other securities of the Company. Other than the Stockholders Agreement, there exist no stockholder agreements, voting trusts, proxies, or other contracts with respect the sale, transfer, registration, or voting of shares of Common Stock.

 

(d) The Company has full power and authority to execute and deliver this Agreement and to perform its obligations under this Agreement. Execution and delivery of this Agreement and performance by the Company of its obligations under this Agreement have been duly authorized by the Company’s board of directors and no other corporate proceedings on the part of the Company are necessary with respect thereto. This Agreement constitutes the valid and binding obligation of the Company, enforceable in accordance with its terms, except as enforceability is limited by (1) any applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or similar law affecting creditors’ rights generally, or (2) general principles of equity, whether considered in a proceeding in equity or at law. The issuance and sale of the Shares will not give rise to any preemptive rights or rights of first refusal on behalf of any person or entity not previously waived except as provided in the Stockholders Agreement.

 

(e) The Company is not required to obtain the consent of any person or entity, including the consent of any party to any contract to which the Company is a party, in connection


with execution and delivery of this Agreement and performance of its obligations under this Agreement.

 

(f) The Company’s execution and delivery of this Agreement and performance of its obligations under this Agreement do not and will not (1) violate any provision of the certificate of incorporation or by-laws of the Company as currently in effect, (2) conflict with, result in a breach of, constitute a default under (or an event that, with notice or lapse of time or both, would constitute a default under), accelerate the performance required by, result in the creation of any lien upon any of the properties or assets of the Company under, or create in any party the right to accelerate, terminate, modify, or cancel, or require any notice under, any contract to which the Company is a party or by which any properties or assets of the Company are bound, or (3) violate any law or court order currently in effect to which the Company is subject.
