During this option period, the GENI Board will not entertain an application within that same city, unless the other applicant is a non-profit, educational organization or government entity.  If option holders fail to pay the balance of the membership fee within 6 months, their Option Fee is forfeited and other Corporations can apply.

The GENI Board approves all transfers and the current transfer fee to be paid is 50% of the License Fee.  The transfer fee is due with the application for transfer.
