Why do we have the 20/20 Membership Referral Program?

We appreciate that when you choose to live a healthier lifestyle, you’re more likely to be successful when you work together toward your health goals with the help of friends, family and teammates. Our 20/20 Membership Referral Program encourages you to be an advocate for healthier living, both personally and in the community. Our hope is that the 20/20 Membership Referral Program offers you an encouraging support system and enhanced motivation to meet your goals and strengthen our community.

How do I get started?

To join the 20/20 Membership Referral Program, you simply need to complete the 20/20 referral form when you join the Y. 

Who is eligible to participate in this program?

Current members — you need to have an active membership in good standing from any of these membership categories: Young Adult, Adult, Family, Senior, or Senior Couple on a monthly auto- draft

New members — you need to join with a membership from any of these membership categories: Young Adult, Adult, Family, Senior or Senior Couple on a monthly auto-draft

Can I refer more than one friend or family member?

Yes! Although you will not receive additional savings, as long as one of your referrals remains active, you will continue to enjoy the 20% savings.

How long is this reduced rate valid?

The reduced rate received from participating in the 20/20 member benefit program is good for as long as both parties remain members.

What happens if one of us leaves the Y?

Should one of you cancel your membership, the remaining member has fourteen (14) days to refer another friend or family member to join. If the remaining member doesn’t refer another friend or family member to join (and the referred person joins) within 14 days, the reduced membership rate returns to the standard rate for your membership category.

Will the 20/20 Membership Referral Program rate ever increase?

If future membership rates increase, the membership rate will reflect a 20% savings on whatever the current standard membership rate is.

I am joining the Y as a new member in the 20/20 Membership Referral Program. Do I have to pay a joining fee?

Yes, new members joining through the 20/20 Membership Program are subject to the standard joining fee.

I referred my friend and my friend joined. When do they receive their reduced rate?

The 20/20 Membership Referral Program rate for your friends membership will be reflected within 30 days of the time a completed 20/20 Membership Program member referral form is received in Membership Billing.

As the current member, your 20% will be applied to your membership on the following month.

Does my friend or family member have to join the same Y?

Your friend or family member needs to join the Family YMCA of the Glens Falls Area

Can a member leave and come back as another member’s friend and family member?

No, you can be referred by a member as long as you have not been a member within 90 days. Dropping your membership and re-joining again to get the discount does not align with our core values. To receive the 20% savings, your membership must be inactive for at least 90 days.

I am currently receiving financial assistance. Can I refer a friend for this program?

Yes – IF you are doing a monthly auto-draft. We encourage all of our members to take this opportunity and help us to make our community a healthier place to live. Should your friend or family member decide to join they will receive the 20/20 Membership Program rate for the membership category they select. Your membership will remain at your standard financial assistance rate or be changed to the 20/20 Membership Program rate for your current membership type, whichever savings is greater.

Financial assistance is available to those who qualify for programs in addition to membership. When you visit us ask the front desk how to apply or visit www.glensfallsymca.org/scholarship

I currently receive a reduced rate for my membership. Can I refer a friend for this program?

Yes. We encourage all of our members to take this opportunity and help us make our community a healthier place to live. Should your friend or family member decide to join they will receive the 20/20 Membership Program rate for the membership category they select. Your membership will remain at your current special rate or be changed to the 20/20 Membership Program rate for your current membership type, whichever savings is greater.

I have a free (CDPHP / Silver Sneakers / Renew Active) Senior membership. Can I refer someone for the 20/20 Membership Referral Program?

Yes, you can refer a new member, and that new member will receive the 20% savings so long as the new member coming on board is not also receiving a free (CDPHP, Silver Sneaker or Renew Active) senior membership. Free memberships (CDPHP, Silver Sneakers, and Renew Active) do not qualify for the 20% savings, since the membership is free.
