An active member is a person, 18 years of age or older, who is current on monthly dues. An active member has all club rights and privileges including attending all business and other meetings and club functions. They may vote and hold elected office. A Junior/Student member is a person, 13 years of age to 17 years of age (in the case of a student, to 27 years of age), who is current on monthly dues. They may attend club meetings and functions, but they may not vote or hold office, unless over the age of 18 years. All Junior members must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all club functions. The parent or guardian does not have to be a member. Students over the age of 18 do not require a parent or guardian. The immediate family of any active member in good standing may be enrolled if they would like to participate in club functions on a regular basis. Family members pay only half of the initiation fee and dues of an active member.
