INITIATION FEE – Each newly elected member must pay a non-refundable initiation fee before membership is completed.  See new member application for details.

LATE FEE – Late fees are charged on all fees that are overdue for 30 days or more. Late fees are compounded monthly.

MEMBER NOT ACTIVE – At the end of a membership year, any member who has not met the points or dues requirements will be considered a member not active. A member may return active after a one year waiting period, during which the member’s seniority is suspended, and the member must meet the points requirements. At the end of this waiting period, the member will be returned to good standing. His/her seniority will be restored to its original date. If the member does not meet the points requirements during the waiting period, then he/she will remain a member not active another year.

POINTS SYSTEM – Each member must obtain 125 points during each membership year to maintain status as a member in good standing. Points for new members are prorated. The member must document all points within 60 days of being earned. The points list is posted on the Official Bulletin Board at the top of the stairs. Points are earned as follows:

Attend monthly meeting – 10 points
