& Shag Club Membership Guidelines
The Ocean Drive Pavilion Social and Shag Club is
open to all new members having been approved by
board member(s) once a completed application and
membership fee is received. At this time new members
will be sent a welcome letter, be placed in our
mailing and email database to start receiving
newsletters and club news.
The following rules are from our bylaws:
Membership Renewal and Termination.
A. Renewal. The
Club's calendar year is January 1 through December
31. The Membership Chairperson shall give each
member at least 45 days advance notice of the
approaching renewal. A member who is in good
standing shall be renewed as a member for the next
twelve (12) calendar months upon payment of the
annual membership dues for the next year, provided
the payment is delivered to the Membership
Chairperson no later than December 31. Upon the
timely payment of renewal dues to the Membership
Chairperson, said member automatically shall be a
member of the Club for the ensuing year.
The membership of any member of the Club who fails
to renew his or her membership in the Club as
provided above shall be automatically terminated.
A former member whose membership has terminated
automatically for non-payment of dues will be
reinstated upon delivery of a membership application
form together with payment plus a five dollar ($5)
late payment fee of the annual membership dues to
the Membership Chairperson.
Suspension or Expulsion. For good cause, the Board
may censure a member, may suspend a member, or may
expel a member. For purposes of this section, "good
cause" shall include assaultive behavior against any
person; disorderly conduct tending to promote a
breach of the peace; open and notorious illegal or
grossly immoral public conduct; and any other
personal conduct adverse to the best interests and
purposes of the Club.
Procedures. In considering and/or
implementing the censure, suspension or expulsion
of a member of the Club, the Board must provide the
member concerned with written notice that the Board
is considering a disciplinary action at least two
weeks prior to the Board meeting at which the
disciplinary action will be considered and will also
advise the member concerned of his or her right to
appear before the Board to respond to said
complaint. When the disciplinary issue has been
raised by a member or members of the Club not
serving on the Board, the Board alone has the sole
discretion to proceed to a hearing, to dismiss the
case, or to take any other action that the Board
finds to be in the best interest of the Club.
C. Voting Requirements
for Disciplinary Actions. The censure,
suspension or expulsion of a member requires an
affirmative vote of not less than two-thirds of the
Board of Directors, with at least eight (8) Board
members voting for said censure, suspension or
expulsion. The vote of the Board to censure, suspend
or expel any member shall be final.
D. Re-admission of
Expelled Member. A member who has been
expelled from membership in the Club may reapply for
membership at any time after twelve (12) calendar
months following the date he or she was expelled.
The Board may accept or reject the application,
and/or the Board may set conditions for the member's
readmission to membership in the Club.
