    New Membership Requirements! Please Read!

    As of today, we are reinitiating our past membership requirements.

    As of now, the 25 post limit to become a member is no longer valid. If you were previously given membership status using this limit, you are grandfathered and will maintain your status.

    To all members:

    To be a member, you must attend 2 meetings per calendar year, or pay a $20 membership fee per year.

    We do realize that this is a bit unfair due to the past dissolution. We are initiating what we believe is a fair resolution.

    All current members will retain that status until the June 2012 meeting. At that point, your membership status will be lost. To retain your status, you must attend 1 meeting from now until the June 2012 meeting or pay your annual dues.

    A second meeting must be attended between now and the December 2012 meeting. If on Dec 31 2012 a you have not attended a minimum of 2 meetings or paid your annual dues, you will lose membership status.

    From that point forward, the normal membership policy will resume.


    As copied from the bylaws:

    Article IV. Membership
    IV.1. Membership in the Southern Colorado Marine Aquarist Society shall be open to any person who attends 2 meetings within a 12 month calendar year or provides the payment of an annual membership due.
    IV.2. Individuals obtaining membership via the membership due, will pay an annual amount of $20. Membership starts the day of purchase and will be active untill 12 months from that day.
    IV.2.A. Membership dues will be paid via the "Paid Subscriptions" link or to one of the BOD listed in the FAQs section of the site . Membership fees are non-refundable, unless approved by a vote of the BOD.


    And questions, please post or send me or any of the BOD members a PM.

    Correct me if I have missed anything.

    All sponsor offers, discounts, and promotions offered to the club are reserved for members only.

    The right to vote.

    The right to hold office.

    The right to view the members only forum.

    Expanded forum privledges such as a much higher PM cap.

    The right to have access to frag tank space at any events. (Usually free)

    Plus being a member shows the other members that you are here supporting the club instead of using it. We do have some that use us for nothing other than a craigslist ad.

    Frag tanks were sold off. The only one left is the 2 x 2 that David has.
