Provisional Member Requirements

Provisional members are new members who are in the process of completing admission requirements for active membership.  As such, you shall be committed to completing the provisional course within the following year after your acceptance of provisional membership.

This course is designed to provide opportunities to learn more about the community, train for volunteering and learn about the responsibilities that come with League membership. If you are unable to complete the provisional course for unavoidable reasons, the Management Team may grant one extension of 12 months.  While completing the provisional course, provisional members attend General Membership Meetings but are not eligible to vote or hold office.  The provisional year is from August until the following May.
