Membership

Milwaukee CLT is a membership organization. If you live in the City of Milwaukee, membership dues are $1 per year. To vote in the annual elections that occur each February, you must have paid your dues by December 31 of the previous year. If you are already a member but your dues lapsed, our bylaws allow some exceptions to the December 31 deadline.

You can pay cash in person to the Secretary (Nick) or executive director (Chris), or via the paypal link at the bottom of the page.

As a member, you have the rights explained on this page. But you also have responsibilities: in order for elections to happen, we must meet quorum. A quorum is the minimum number of members who must be present to take a vote. Quorum is a percentage of the total number of dues paying members. Not every member has to show up, but if we do not have enough people to meet quorum, we cannot hold a vote. More members means a larger quorum. You can donate without becoming a member on this page.

We know that some people will miss membership votes due to work or family responsibilities, and that is OK. Not everyone has to show up to meet quorum, so if you want to be a member, please join! By joining, you agree that you will try your best to make it to the once per year meeting for annual elections.

 

 

 

If you can’t make the elections in person, you can send someone to vote for you. An absentee vote does not count towards quorum. Here is an example note:

 

My name: Byron Kilbourn

My signature: Byron Kilbourn

Today’s date: February 27, 1854

I give George Walker permission to cast my vote at the Milwaukee CLT meeting.

 

 

 

You can pay your membership dues using this paypal “Donate” button. You must provide your full name, email address, and mailing address; this is a state law. Your information will not be shared or used for any purpose other than required bookkeeping. If you donate more than $1, $1 will go to your membership dues and the rest will be accepted as a donation. If you send $11 or more and want one of these stickers, let us know in the special instructions.

You must select the optional “Use this donation for…Membership” to ensure this is accurately marked as a dues payment.
