Membership Committee


The mission of this committee is to maintain the roster of the club members, the “master list”, with current contact information and membership type and status for each member. The Board, other committees and the entire membership will rely on this list as the true source of who the CCRCA is. General responsibilities of this committee include processing new applications, billing when dues are due, maintaining the master membership roster and keeping a record of each new member’s date of entry into membership.

  2. To submit to the Board by July 1, a bi-annual report of accomplishments for 1st half.

  3. To submit to the Board by Feb. 1, names of each committee member, goals for the upcoming year, and a bi-annual report of accomplishments for 2nd half.

  4. To submit regular reports to the CC. Reports include names; addresses and sponsors of newly received applicants and subsequently approved applicants.
