Eligibility for membership:
Application for voting membership shall be open to any current resident, property owner, business operator, employee, or student of the North America that supports the purpose statement in Article I, Section 2. New members shall be proposed by existing members (Click here to propose a new member). Proposals are reviewed by the Membership Committee and Board of Directors and then published to all members. Absent protest by other members (which can be overridden by the Board of Directors), the proposed new membership may then grant. After completion and receipt of a membership grant and annual dues, the new member joins. All memberships shall be granted upon a majority vote of the Board of Directors.
The amount required for annual dues shall be $50 each year, unless changed by a majority vote of the members at an annual meeting of the full membership. Continued membership is contingent upon being up-to-date on membership dues.
Rights of members:
Each member shall be eligible to appoint one voting representative to cast the member’s vote in organization elections.
Resignation and termination:
Any member may resign by filing a written resignation with the secretary. Resignation shall not relieve a member of unpaid dues, or other charges previously accrued. A member can have their membership terminated by a majority vote of the membership.
The board shall have the authority to establish and define non-voting categories of membership.
