*RENEWING MEMBERS, please read this…

As a currently active club member, you may have taken advantage of the spouse / household partner (“SHP”) feature of our membership. This feature has allowed a paying member to attach a spouse or household partner to his/her membership without paying additional dues.

Unfortunately, the SHP feature has created extra difficulties for our all-volunteer staff in maintaining our membership records and mailing list with complete accuracy.

With this in mind, the Board has voted to eliminate the SHP feature of membership as we redesign our data base. We encourage current SHP’s to join our club as dues-paying full members. Remember, all dues-paying members receive the monthly newsletter eBlast, the Activity Director’s eBlasts about upcoming rides, the quarterly roster publication, and the President’s monthly eBlasts.

Note: The SHP’s full name can still be entered on the membership form and will be saved on your roster record. However, to become a full dues-paying member, the SHP must submit his/her own separate membership form and dues. 

Thanks very much,

Your Board of Directors
