When the nominee becomes number one on the waiting list, and a vacancy develops (active membership of the Association falling below 110) the nominee will be contacted about the status of their membership application.

Following a Board vote, the nominee will be contacted, and offered a full membership. Upon receipt by the Club Treasurer of payment in the amount of $1,000.00 (membership fee of $1,250.00 less the initial deposit of $250.00) the nominee will become an ‘active’ member.

New members are asked to familiarize themselves with the rules and policies of the club, and double check that their contact information on file is current so that they don’t miss out on great events and other important communications.
