Associate Membership

Associate members are those mothers whose children have graduated from the program in good standing.

A mother whose youngest child has graduated from high school or has reached the 20th birthday may apply in writing to the Executive Board for associate membership. The mother completes tenure in good standing by paying the national and regional per capita tax and any fees upon which the Chapter and associates mutually agree.

An associate member may choose to affiliate with an associate group of a nearby chapter, if the Chapter does not have an associates group. If the Chapter does have an associates group, then an associate liaison will help to recruit tenured mothers and disseminate associate information to members of the group. The associate membership will fall under the responsibilities of the Vice President.
