New unit wanting to join
1. You must apply directly to the
President of the Brigade for membership, either electronically or via the US
mail asking for
the unit/units to be admitted
into the Brigade. No dues payment are required at this time. You also
need to include names, addresses, phone #'s and email contacts for all individuals
in the unit/units and identify the unit commander/representative.
2. You must include a photo, again either over the web or
via mail, of the unit/units in kit. There must be at least two members present
in the photo for the unit
application to be considered.
Individuals may apply for membership in the Brigade.
Members of the Brigade that are not affiliated with a unit are regarded as
part of the administrative unit Quartier General/ Headquarters Staff. These
individuals will assist the Brigade staff at events. During combat scenarios,
they will be seconded to a comparable unit.
3. The above provided information is then given (via email)
to the voting (active)
member representatives of the units in the Brigade. An online vote
is taken and the unit/units applying are accepted or rejected by a simple majority
vote. If you're rejected, you will be told why. You have the opportunity to
the reason/s for the rejection and you may then re-apply.
4. At the point that you are accepted into the Brigade, you
will be advised about membership dues. These dues and the membership list (including names, addresses, phone #'s and email contacts for each member) are sent to the Brigade
Treasurer, in one check for the total number of individuals registered, troopers
or soldiers and
distaff or family who you wish covered with Brigade insurance. Dues
are pro-rated from the date your unit was accepted into the Brigade. A copy of the Membership List should alos be sent to the Brigade Secretary.
5. From the time your unit is accepted you are on probationary
status in the Brigade for one year. You must attend one Brigade event during
the year of probationary status with at least two members before
you are considered to be active in the Brigade. Then from that time
on (one year after the date of acceptance) as long a you continue to pay dues
for you members
and attend events you are a voting member in the organization. Any failure
to attend in a one year time span drops you back to a probationary unit (no
privileges), any failure to pay to dues in the same time period (1 year) causes
pay back dues the next time they are due but you are not required to reapply
as a new unit. . After two years of non-payment you are no longer consider
a Brigade member.
