Membership Options

Couple’s Memberships

APEX does not offer a “couple’s” membership option. We all meet at APEX as equals, and no relationship style gets preferential treatment. Offering a “couple’s” membership would mean that couples are valued more than singles, poly families, triads, or any other relationship type, and that just isn’t what APEX is about.

 

Gendered Pricing

APEX does not offer special pricing based on genders (or lack of gender). Everyone is welcome at APEX and no gender (or lack of gender) is any more valuable than another, and we don’t need to engage in invasive conversation about your gender in order for you to be welcomed at APEX. Giving preferential treatment based on gender (or any construct or label) is just not how we work.

 

Guest Policy

APEX Members are NOT entitled to a guest or a +1 at APEX Events. Everyone needs their own membership. There is an Annual Guest Pass available to our Annual All Access Members. You can read more about that on the Membership Type page.
