Joining the Club


Membership Application Process

1. Download and Fill out an application form (bonus points for forms that were electronically filled and printed – PLEASE NOTE: save the form to your computer before printing) – Download the form here

2. Bring your completed application and necessary fees to the membership meeting (held on the 1st Tuesday of the Month – please arrive before 6:30PM). IF you cannot make it to the meeting, THEN you will need to get two members or one director to sponsor your application. If your application is not accepted (most common reason for rejection is misrepresentations on your application) we will give you a full refund after the meeting.

3. You will need to attend a Club Orientation course. This is scheduled after the meeting. You will need to make yourself available during one of the times the orientation courses are being run. Volunteers run these courses and only have so much availability.

4. Three (3) probationary shoots and four (4) hours of Voluntary Labour must be completed before you get full membership (Please Note: you cannot get more than one signature for shooting in a single day). Be sure to speak with Kerry or Jake about your supervised shoot when you see them on club grounds. The same goes for volunteer opportunities.

5. You will need to hand in your probationary membership card with four signatures in order to pick up your membership card and access card.

When you have completed your probationary period, the next time you are on club grounds ask for a Director to retrieve your membership card and access card from the main building.

Do not continually email club members asking when your materials will be available. It is your responsibility as a member to go to the club and check.

If you have checked in person at the club with a club Director and your materials are still not available, email and a Director will add your task to our action list. Action list items get completed on a monthly basis. So, check back again in 3-4 weeks and repeat as necessary until you get what you need.

If you have completed an RSO or Club Level Restricted course, be sure to have your instructor stamp your membership card appropriately.

If you intend to take the Club Level Restricted course, the $25 administrative fee must be paid up front when applying or renewing your membership.

For renewing members, updated membership cards will be printed and made available in the main building. Updated membership cards will not be mailed out. When you are on club grounds, ask a Director for help to retrieve your updated membership card. An email will be sent out and the club website will be updated when renewal cards are ready.
