How long does it take to become a member of the Club?

Once your sponsor and seconder submit the required paperwork, the process typically takes less than a week to begin using the facilities. Each candidate’s application is reviewed and references may be checked. You will be asked to attend a “Meet & Greet”  or a "Prospective Member Cocktail Party" where you will meet members of the Admissions Committee and the Board of Governors. A recommendation will then be made to the Board of Governors for a final decision.

Proposing a New Member Candidate

If you propose a candidate for membership you are responsible most of all to be familiar with the Membership Policies and Procedures which is available in the business office. The Proposer is also responsible for the candidate’s application and their attendance at the Meet and Greet. Once the application has been completed, the candidate is posted both on the Bulletin Board and the Slice Newsletter, and all the necessary letters are on file, you will be asked to invite your candidate to attend the next scheduled Meet and Greet. Meet and Greets are scheduled once a month. This is the last step before board approval to become a member.
