New Member Orientation *MANDATORY*

After you submit your completed application all new members are required to attend a New Member Orientation course before you can be voted on to become a New Member. New Member Orientations are scheduled once a month and the schedule can be found on our CALENDAR page.

You may download the Orientation Workbook Manual here (PDF) here. Please read it, answer the questions in the manual and, bring it with you to the New Member Orientation meeting. Upon completion of the New Member Orientation candidates will be placed on the list to be voted on during the next business meeting which they MUST attend.

Work Hours Incentive Program

Volunteering your time to help out around the club can be counted as “work hours” which can earn you credit when it is time to renew. This is a great way to participate in activities around the club and get to know other members. This is how we keep our dues low. CHECK OUT THE WORK HOUR CALENDAR.

The work hours incentive program is designed to compensate club members for donating their labor on various club projects. Up to 25 hours will be credited towards a members dues for the following year (at a rate of $3.00/hour) for members who volunteer for authorized projects. Members who wish to donate work hours for individual projects should also work hour author authorization in advance. Chairman or project leaders should submit a list of hours worked by members to the president or treasurer at the monthly business meeting. Please contact the committee chair of your choice to arrange your work hours. There are work hour tasks available for all skills and levels of physical ability. This is how we keep our dues low.

Note: Everyone who joins is treated equally and pays the same price. We do not change our dues structure based upon what someone does for a living or whether they served in the military.
