Applying for Membership

The GDCCNC offers two different types of memberships, associate and regular. Associate memberships are for those people who are unable to attend regular club meetings, but still want to be involved in the club. They are entitled to all club privileges except voting and holding office.

Regular memberships are for those people that are able to be involved in all club activities and they receive all privileges of the club. We also have family memberships for both types of members as well as junior memberships.

Please read the membership guidelines as written in our Bylaws for further information.
