Hi Martha (et al): Here are links to our policies. http://newview.org/Joining.htm These outline our policies. We've used this form of them for at least 10 years. They seem to work fine. We make a distinction between those who live right near by, within walking distance, who participate a lot (with very few limits) and pay a fairly substantial fixed annual fee; and others who typically live farther away and participate sometimes (with more limits), and pay less, and on a sliding scale We don't use liability waivers: I believe our generic liability policy provides sufficient protection, and liability waivers aren't as protective as people think (I can't bind my heirs from suing you for wrongful death for example). -Jim Jim Snyder-Grant Home: 978 266-9409 Cell: 508 572-2985 18 Half Moon Hill Acton MA 01720 On Thu, Feb 27, 2014 at 5:42 PM, Martha Wagner <wordbizpdx [at] gmail.com> wrote: > > Does your community have an associate membership policy that’s been in > effect for at least two or three years?
