Parent Partner Membership (Voting)
This is a voting membership that must be purchased with the Full Membership (under 18 yrs old). We feel that it is important that every member of the club have a say in what happens and as only those who are 18 and older may vote, we have instituted the role of “Parent Partner” as a mandatory level of membership for all of our younger skaters so that their parents may represent them at General Membership Meetings to vote on budgets, bylaw changes, nominations to the board of directors and any other club business which requires a vote. This allows all parents who sign up for this level to be considered and eligible (if they so desire) to be nominated to a board position.
Additional Family Member (Voting)
If you have two or more members of your family who would like to be Full Members of the club then this level is perfect for you. After the initial member pays the Full Member fees then each additional member can join at a reduced rate but still receive all the benefits of Full Membership. Voting rights are for members 18 years of age and over.
