Each year on the first Sunday of October, we conduct our annual membership meeting. All members are invited to attend. Time and place is sent to all members annually prior to the meeting.
(a) Membership is subject to payment of annual and special assessments and to a member complying with published regulations and restrictions of the Association. The right to membership shall be automatically suspended for nonpayment of dues or assessments by May 1st of each year. Where membership has been suspended for nonpayment of said dues or assessments, the membership shall be reinstated upon payment of said dues or assessments, penalties and reasonable expenses of collection, subject however, to Article VII, Section 11.
