Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

Who is behind EngagePhase Weekly?

EngagePhase Weekly is brought to you by the Center for Applied Community Engagement, LLC, a private institute serving the growing professional field of community engagement and public participation practitioners from around the globe through market research, content publishing, industry events and other services.

How does the paid subscription work?

Very simple: you’ll receive EngagePhase Weekly, the weekly email newsletter covering the emerging global community engagement and public participation industry, for as long as you’re subscribed.

Can I cancel or change my payment details?

Yes, of course! EngagePhase relies on Memberful, a third-party service for handling paid subscriptions. At any time, simply sign into your Memberful account to update your membership information. You may change your credit card information, billing address, or email address. You may also switch plans or cancel your membership. Your payment information is never sent to our servers.

Is my payment information secure?

Absolutely! Please go to the Memberful website to learn more.

Are group plans or corporate licenses available?

Yes! Please contact us to discuss how we might best accommodate your organization or team.

I can’t purchase/login. What’s wrong?

Please check the security settings of your browser. If you have disabled third-party cookies then the paid subscription software won’t work. Either use another browser or change your settings. Once you’ve registered or were able to log in you can change the settings back to where they were before.

Can I switch plans?

Yes, you can easily upgrade to higher-priced plans (e.g, from monthly to semi-annual, or from semi-annual to annual). Just log in, go to your account panel and select the alternate plan. A prorated credit will be applied to the charge and the change to your plan will take effect immediately.

Downgrades always kick in at the next renewal date. So if you had purchased an annual subscription on October 1st, 2017 and you decided to switch to a monthly plan on February 15th, 2018, that change would go into effect on October 1st, 2018.

How comprehensive is your news aggregator?

Our goal is to monitor all the things so you don’t have to. As of February 2022, our custom-built content aggregator tracks the following types of sources:

50+ blogs
50+ email newsletters
250+ social media accounts
10+ Twitter hashtag feeds (English, German, French, Spanish, and Italian)
Plus various others

We expect the breadth and depth of our industry coverage to keep growing as we move forward.

When will your public beta phase end?

We believe eternal betas are still a thing. We look forward to having you while we continue to iterate.
