Renewing Members Policy

Renewing members must return their completed application and sign their code of conduct and pay their membership dues by the end of the first meeting of the year.  If not paid at the first meeting due to lack of attendance, trade (or member) will be given until the end of January.  If not received by the last day of January the membership category is considered open and the membership committee will be allowed to vet and fill a new member for that trade (or member category).  Officers of the association have the sole and final discretion as it relates to acceptance of renewal applications, based upon the code of conduct, member interactions, and performance in the industry.
