Fee-Waived Associate Member
To be inclusive of local clubs, hobbyists, and concerned citizens who create websites for the benefit of others in our community WayNet's board of directors has created a new category.  The Fee-Waived Associate membership creates an opportunity for those who do not have a 501(c)(3) designation, nor receive income from their site, but do offer a service, to publicize that service to the community to become a part of WayNet.org.


Fee Waiver application form must be completed.  The application will be submitted to the WayNet Board of Directors at the next regular meeting, following submission of the form.

  1. The WayNet Board of Directors reserves the right to approve or deny any application for any reason.
  2. Fee-Waived Basic Members will be reviewed and approved/denied on an annual basis.
  3. The site must offer unique information or a service that is beneficial to the Wayne County, Indiana community.
  4. The site must include no advertising.
  5. The site must include a link to WayNet.org.
  6. The site must follow WayNet's Terms of Service Policy.

Waynet, Inc. also maintains a list of local companies/persons who do web site design. Waynet, Inc. makes no warranties on these names but is pleased to share the list in order to encourage local businesses, organizations and individuals to create a web presence.

Small Business/Commerce Package
Waynet, Inc. has put together a package for small businesses that would like to have exposure on the Internet and via WayNet - but who don't want the cost or trouble of putting together their own web site.  This package is for those who will not require frequent updates to their page.  The package is being offered for $400/year and includes up to one - 8 1/2" x 11" page of text and 3 images.
