No!

There is no long term legal commitment involved in MD2MD membership. Membership continues only as long as you choose.  Whilst we’d encourage you to think carefully before joining and most leavers exit gracefully in a planned way with a chance to say farewell, membership can be terminated at any time. You stop paying and you stop attending.

This is because MD2MD can only work effectively if its members are there because they value membership and want to be there. Whilst many have been members for many years, that is because they value continuing membership.

In addition we never invite someone to join unless and until they have attended as our guest. MD2MD meetings often include discussions of highly confidential and sensitive topics. Members must be comfortable both commercially and personally to talk about those topics with everyone else in the room.

That’s a win:win. You get to experience MD2MD for yourself, and meet our existing members, and they get to meet you. That gives the opportunity for both sides to test the ground without commitment. It’s only then that both sides are able to make the decision to progress.
