You must apply directly to the Board of Directors in writing for inactive membership. The applicant must have been an active member for at least 1 (one) year before applying for inactive status.

Members requesting to be placed on the Inactive list must provide the membership chairman with an out of town address.

Once a member has been moved back to the regular active member list, he is ineligible for inactive membership unless he appears before the board of directors or writes to the board of directors and explains his request.
