New Technology Agreement FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)

We’ve received several questions and concerns about the new electronic technology agreement. We’ve addressed the most common ones below.

FAQ: What advantage will the Association see by using Electronic Technology?

Answer: Electronic technology allows the Association to cut down on postal mailings, which saves paper, printing costs, supplies postage, and time, which all means saving the Association money. Cutting down on mailings is a green solution that helps conserve Earth’s resources.

In 2014, Muirfield saved $1,403.29 just in postage by emailing annual meeting information as opposed to mailing it. This amount does not include the additional time and money saved in printing and labor.

FAQ: How can the Electronic Communications program help me?

Answer: This program will help you save time and some money. All communications will come to your inbox instead of your mailbox. You can access your email any time it's convenient and there's no more waiting for the mail to come to your home. This can be especially helpful if you travel often or are away for the winter. By voting online instead of by paper ballot, you save time filling out the paper ballot and mailing it plus the cost of postage.

FAQ: What material will the Association send electronically?

Answer: The Association may send invoices (for example, the annual assessment), voting information, voting ballot(s), financial statements, minutes of the previous annual meeting, upcoming pool and tennis schedules, and any other announcements or documentation.

FAQ: How will I get my guest passes for the pool?

Answer: Pool guest passes will continue to be sent through postal mail.

FAQ: If I agree, do I have to pay invoices online?

Answer: No. The new agreement only gives you the right to pay online, but does not mean you have to. In fact, we recommend paying by check or through your own bank’s electronic bill pay program. (Update 2/2/17: at this time, paying Muirfield Association dues with a credit card is not possible.)

FAQ: If I do not want to receive electronic communications, how do I "opt out"?

Answer: At any point, you may opt out of the electronic communications program.

If you never opted in to begin with, you do not need to do anything. You will continue to receive communications in the postal mail.

If you previously opted in and now want to opt out, email [email protected] and state your objection or send notification to the Association by postal mail to: Muirfield Association, Inc., 8372 Muirfield Dr., Dublin, OH 43017. We must have your request in either email or writing; we cannot accept opt-out requests over the phone. Please be aware that if an electronic voting ballot has already been sent for an election, we will be unable to issue a paper ballot for the same election.

FAQ: If I change my mind later about receiving electronic communications, what do I do?

Answer: You may change your mind at any time about receiving electronic communications. Simply email [email protected] and state your preference. You must include your name and Muirfield street address to ensure proper handling of your request.

You may also download print, and fill out the New Technology Agreement Form and return it to the Association office.

FAQ: Does opting in or out affect receiving eNews (Muirfield Association alerts) emails?

Answer: No. Muirfield Association Alerts and any material sent per the Electronic Technology Agreement are entirely separate. You may be on one, both, or neither of the lists.

To opt in or opt out of the Electronic Technology Agreement, contact the Association office or email [email protected] and state your preference. You must include your name, address and lot number (if known) to ensure proper handling of your request.

If you wish to unsubscribe from Muirfield Association Alerts, please use the “unsubscribe” link on the bottom of an alert email. If you experience problems doing so, please email [email protected] and let us know you'd like to unsubscribe.
