Membership term policy changes effective January 1, 2021.
There are a number of available options for RYF/WYF memberships. These include individual and family memberships among others. Up until this year, memberships were based a 12 month basis, in other words, a membership was for 12 months from the time of joining regardless of the date. Notices were sent out through the club website notifying members that their membership was expiring and it was time to renew.
At the first part of 2021, the RYF Board of Directors changed the membership term to a calendar year basis. All memberships will use a term of January 1 to December 31, regardless of when a member joins. All members in an active status on January 1, 2021, had their memberships extended until December 31, 2021, regardless of the prior expiration date. Any new members’ term during a calendar year will go from the date of enrollment through December 31. Subsequent terms will be for the full calendar year.
