When are Member/Business Meetings?

Members attending this meeting must wear current membership cards. New members to be voted in, and pre-approved guests are excused from wearing a membership card.
You must be 18 years or older to hold a primary membership.
A primary membership is held by an individual over 18 years, or the heads of household for a Family Membership. Anyone under 18 will have to be associated with a Family Membership or hold a Junior Membership, and must be accompanied by one of the adults in that membership. Junior members can be accompanied by any adult member.
Membership Dues and Fees
The yearly membership time frame is from January 1st to December 31st. If you join at anytime during the year, the membership expires on December 31st, and must be renewed to remain a member. Dues aren't prorated! Renewal period is from October 1st to December 31st for the following year.
Renewals are due by December 31st! If mailed, renewals with a postmark after December 31st will be rejected and returned to the sender. Our bylaws prohibit us from processing late renewals, and require an individual to rejoin in order to continue membership.
Children of Family Membership Turning 18 Years Old
Children of family memberships, 18 and older, can't be included in family memberships. If you have children turning 18 and they would like to continue their membership in the club, we've made special provisions. The individual must attend the orientation, but the orientation fee requirement is waived, when a child who is part of a family membership turns 18, and applies for a membership within one year of turning 18.
