A limited number of Associate Memberships are available in 2020 to applicants under the age of 40. The Associate application process is the same as that of Regular; however, Associates benefit from an initiation fee that is both delayed and reduced. Associates enjoy all Regular member privileges with the exceptions of voting on Club matters and participating in Club governance.
A prospective Associate will pay an application fee, an initiation installment (upon joining), and annual dues equal to that of a Regular Membership. Each subsequent year, an Associate will be charged dues at the Regular rate until the year the oldest family member turns 40. At that point, the Associate Membership will terminate and the family may convert to Regular by paying the initiation fee in place at the time, reduced by the following amounts: the Associate's original application fee; initial installment; and, a $1,000 credit for each year the Associate paid annual dues prior to converting to Regular Membership.
