To make things equitable for our members we don’t have a set membership fee in place. Instead, we peg your dues to one percent of your annual income. For more on how and why we do this read our Terms and Conditions but in short, we believe this is the best way to ensure our community is inclusive and diverse.  


Members receive a set amount of free offerings per year. The set number varies depending on our monthly programming schedule but we can guarantee no less than X many included events. For other more intimate affairs such as private dinners we may charge an additional fee to offset food or production costs but these will be modest in comparison to similar experiences offered outside of UP.


Our events are primarily for UP members only with limited exceptions throughout the year. Members will be notified with plenty of advanced notice of any open events in which they are able to bring one or more guests.
