Election to Membership
Before applying for membership, individuals should plan to attend as many meetings as possible to get to know the club in general and its members. Sponsorship of two ADPC members is required with the submission of the membership application. Once an application is submitted to the club, a reading of the application is done at the next general membership meeting and the applicant is encouraged to attend. A second reading is done at the following general membership meeting and after any discussion, a vote is made on membership.
Once your application is reviewed and voted on at a general meeting, and you are accepted, you are now a member.
