Elder Service Providers Policies

Lunch Meetings

  • Please RSVP. We accept RSVPs for members and guests until 1 pm on the Monday before our meeting. We appreciate cancellations of reservations by that time. The price is $16 with a reservation, and $25 without RSVP. We need your RSVP to plan for enough food. Without a reservation, you may be asked to wait until those with reservations have been accommodated.
  • Because we must pay for every reservation, we are not able to issue refunds if you cannot attend after reserving for a meeting. Members and guests who cancel before the RSVP deadline (1 pm Monday before the meeting) will not be charged.
  • You may attend one meeting as a visitor before joining. Previous members may attend once as a visitor, and then we will ask you to join again as a new member.

Submitting news or events

  • Announcements will only be accepted from member organizations. Please do not place classified ads (Example: Member Margaret B has an electric wheelchair in good condition and wants to sell it.)
  • Please do not submit direct marketing announcements (Example: "Contact us for all your insurance needs: Real Good Insurance Co" or "Lovely studio apartment available in our Assisted Living facility …")
  • All submissions will be reviewed before posting. Please allow 2-3 days for approval.

The following types of submissions are encouraged from members:

  • ESP meetings, events, committee activities.
  • Announcement of meetings and educational opportunities of interest to ESP membership.
  • Announcement of job vacancies / new hires / developments in a member business.
  • Requests for information relevant to caregiving and the needs of caregivers.

Membership

Membership is based on the calendar year, and all members renew January 1st. We keep our membership fees as low as possible, so there are no discounts for joining mid-year.

Each member may be listed in up to two membership categories on the online membership list. The board reserves the right to limit the number of categories and determine if a business is in the appropriate category.



Spam/Mass e-mail and Telephone Solicitation

The ESP Member Directory is provided to encourage networking and facilitate business transactions between members. It is not intended to provide e-mails and phone numbers for solicitation. ESP does not allow members or guests to send mass e-mails or to solicit members by telephone. 

Please respect this policy, and our members’ busy lives. If you’d like to reach all membership, we encourage members to sponsor a lunch meeting, or submit an appropriate announcement for the website.
