Membership Form and Fee Payment
There are two choices for membership registration and fee payment:
(1) by mail
(2) on-line: "Submit" the membership form below and then pay by either Interac e-Transfer (preferred) or by Credit Card using PayPal.
Members include "property owners" in the Upper French River area and immediate family members. Up to three votes per cottage property are permitted at general meetings.
"Associate Members" are individuals or other legal entities who are not property owners in the Upper French River Area but who share the ideals and goals of the UFRCA. “Associate Members” have all the rights of regular members except voting privileges.
One e-mail address is linked to each membership. If other family members wish to receive newsletters and e-mail updates directly, they must have separate memberships. Otherwise, members are urged to forward newsletters to family members.
Keep your membership information current. If you change your e-mail address or mailing address, contact firstname.lastname@example.org and don't miss any newsletters and e-mail updates.
Membership Year and Fee
The UFRCA "Membership Year" begins on July 1 and ends June 30. The fee is $35 per year.
Please note that the new 2019-20 Membership Form will be posted and distributed in May, 2019.
A note about geographic coordinates:
You will be asked to provide your cottage location. Use Google Earth or Google Maps. Please use decimal degree notation (rather than degrees, minutes, seconds) when providing your GPS coordinates: e.g. N 46.2489 W -79.9120 Rounding to 4 decimal places gives accuracy to 11 metres, which should be close enough to get an emergency responder to your dock!
