MEMBERSHIP YEAR

The membership year shall be from 01 January to 31 December

MEMBERSHIP

Membership entitlement applies to the individual, not the Foundation or Management Body. Therefore, if a personnel change is made, a separate membership application is required.

SETTING MEMBERSHIP FEES

Yearly dues shall be set for the following year by the Society at the AGM.

PAYMENT DATE FOR MEMBERSHIP FEES

Membership fees shall be due and payable by March 1 of the membership year. Any member who is in arrears shall cease to be a member and shall lose all membership rights and privileges until such time as fees are paid in full.

TRANSFER OF MEMBERSHIP

When a Foundation, Management Body, Limited Company or any other Organization in the business of operating Seniors Housing Facilities purchases an Alberta Managers' Society Senior Citizens' Housing Membership and subsequently a managerial change occurs which removes the individual for whom the membership was purchased during that membership year, the Foundation, Management Body, Limited Company or any other Organization may apply in writing to the Alberta Managers' Society Senior Citizens' Housing Executive for a transfer of the membership to the new manager. All such written requests will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis.
