Life membership is for people who have proven their dedication to fulfilling the purpose of the organization. These are people who have committed time, energy or their own money to contribute to help fulfill our mission. Life membership is intended as a sort of retirement benefit for members that allows them access to various events and life long discounts without need to renew membership every year or make monthly payments.
Cost: $500 or 10 years of Basic Membership in good standing or 1 year of Senior Membership. Failure to remain in good standing suspends the clock for obtaining Life Membership until missing dues are made whole. Life membership status will also be granted to active members also serving on the board of directors for a minimum of 1 full year.
Benefits: Discounted registration fees and the ability to attend small minor events including training weekends, work weekends, and small private unit level events hosted on the property. These benefits last in perpetuity. This does not grant unfettered access to the site.
Voting Rights: Included
Discounts: 50% discount on event registration fees.
Preferential treatment: Some preferential treatment is granted to honorary members over the general public, such as non-member event attendees.
