New Member Day
At the Board meeting Jan.13, 2015 the Secretary will announce the membership renewals. If the number of vacancies is large enough the Board will vote to have an open registration day to fill those openings.
The probable date would be Sunday, Jan 18, 2015 with the doors opening at noon. This information will be confirmed at the general meeting and posted on the web page Those wishing to join will register on arrival and will receive a ticket entering them in a drawing for the available openings.
Only those wishing to be paid members will get a ticket. This is a family membership but only the person filing the application will be the member of record with signing, voting rights and will be the one required to attend ((2) meetings and perform the required (8) work hours. Tickets will be pulled in groups and those drawn will get a copy of our ground rules, mission statement to review along with the application plus a questioner that is to be completed. They will then return the ground rules and mission statement to the front table then go to the Board room where they will be interviewed and have their paperwork checked for completion.
They will then proceed to the Treasurer where they pay the dues and initiation fee ($214.00) after which they are free to leave. The next group will be called when all loaner materials have been returned to the front table until all openings have been filled.
All applications taken that day will be presented to the Board by their Feb 10th meeting for review/approval. Anyone not approved will receive a notice, with the fees returned, within (3) weeks. Those who do not receive their money back within that period have been approved for membership and can pick up their packets at the General Meeting, March 10th or April 7th. from 6:00 until 7:30 PM. Only the signing member of record may sign for and receive the packet after providing photo ID. The kitchen will be open so plan on staying for something to eat and getting in one of your meetings all in one trip.
The dates above are subject to change due to bad weather so watch the web for updates. The club is closed when the roads in Greene County reach level 1 so don’t even try under those conditions.
