Charter memberships were awarded to those individuals and families who made an initial cash contribution to the pool property and the incorporation of the club. Membership is at a fixed number of 222 and considered equity owners of the club and property.
Charter members enjoy yearly discounted dues and special rental privileges. Contact the board at firstname.lastname@example.org about current availability of Charter memberships available for purchase from either a private party or the swim club board for a price to be determined (current going rate of approximately $300) and are perpetual in duration. Memberships are subject to revocation for failure to timely payment of required yearly dues.
Charter memberships may be sold or transferred privately to any individual or family at a price to be determined by the parties.

Each Charter membership in good standing of dues, including inactive membership, is allotted one vote. In addition, Charter members may place their membership on a non-active status for an annual fee. The Charter membership may remain inactive indefinitely.
