Once all the
applications have been received, a potential candidate list will be created. It will be reviewed by the membership
committee and the following process will take place:
a. Step 1: The committee will decide using a
consensus-based approach and accept any new member based on “obvious merit” of
either the candidate or the sponsor. Examples of obvious merit would be
sponsors who regularly volunteer and provide service to the club or candidates
that have skills or associations which would benefit the club. The
membership committee may also reject any candidate they feel would not make a
good club member for the opposite examples given above.
b. Step 2: The remaining candidates will be
chosen using a random draw system to fill the remaining vacancies.
