3. Associate Members:
Subject to the approval of the Committee at an Executive meeting, any person and their dependants, not specified in above paragraphs may be invited to become an associate member.Associate membership shall be for one year, with no guarantee of renewal for further one year terms.
As a matter of information, our Associate membership limit is 30% and this is taken in relation to our overall Regular/Ordinary membership. As such, we are permitted to only accept a limited number of Associate Members based on these numbers.
Not surprisingly, the BBR&G has become very popular over the past years and we’ve seen a dramatic increase in the number of Associate applications. Given that our Constitution bounds us to a predetermined limit (ie. 30%) as well as a requirement to ensure the “membership of the Club must be maintained to ensure that military personnel and their dependants are able to fully participate in the operation and activities of the Club,” it is unfortunate that all Associate applications cannot be accepted. As such, the Executive Committee has the very difficult task of evaluating/reviewing all applications and determining which Associate applicants can be accepted. Consequently, it is important for all Associate members to understand that future selection criteria will place substantial emphasis on considerations such as seniority in the club, participation/ visibility in club activities, and/or how a particular applicant represents the club’s mandate/motto/ethos. Also important to note is that acceptance as an Associate member in one year cannot guarantee acceptance in any future year(s).
While the BBR&G has been increasing in popularity, the importance of remaining compliant with Canadian Forces regulations as well as our own Constitution cannot be overstated. Unfortunately we do not have the ability to accept all Associate applications and will only be able to vote in Associate members as our Regular/Ordinary membership increases.
Club membership is valid for a one year period, running April through to the following March.
