Sportsmen Associate Members
Recently Elected to Regular or Family Membership:
to our new Associates. Associate membership in Sportsmen Yacht Club is a
six month probationary period, allowing new people to become known to the Club
membership by helping behind the bar, at work parties and through general
participation. This also gives the new member a chance to decide if being
a part of Sportsmen is what they want too.
After five months, the Associate is reintroduced at the regular Friday meeting. Then at six months, a vote is taken by the membership. Prior to the vote, the Associate's sponsors (two SYC members) and any other members wishing to speak, review the Associate's merits and participation with the membership, followed with a recommendation for a positive (or?) vote.
After graduating from Associate to Regular or Family membership, he/she becomes eligible to vote and may then apply for berth and/or cabin rental.
