In order to join and remain an associate or member, you must:
Learn the requirements and procedures - Filling out the Online Application below is the second step in becoming a member of RRPC. Before proceeding any further, you should have wholly completed the first step - read and follow the RRPC Membership Eligibility, Requirements & Procedures found here.
Application Costs - Depending on your Membership Level, your annual dues will be either $100.00 or $50.00. (First dues are prorated to the month, starting in May. Applications submitted from November through the end of the year will also include cost for next year's renewal.) Plus there are two initial mandatory charges: a $50.00 Application fee, and a $10.00 fob fee. There is also an additional $250 fee if you opt out of performing 4 hours verified work prerequisite (details). You will receive your fob after you have been accepted as an Associate.
Payment - Online with credit card. If you do not become a member of RRPC, all payments (excepting the non-refundable $50.00 Application fee) will be refunded upon receipt of your written request, which much be received within six months of the application date. (See our Cancellation Policy for more details on refunds.) Application payments submitted November through the end of the year will include costs for and be credited for next year.
Completing the Application - The Online Application consists of several pages which must be completed in one sitting. Your Application is completed when you have received your checkout receipt. Incomplete applications will be purged.
After applying - Once your application and payment are received, a Membership record is created for you with the Member Status set to "Pending - New". You will receive from us an automatic email acknowledgment. Continue with the Membership process (i.e. come to two Membership meetings, the club orientation, fulfill work requirements, etc.) as previously described above. You'll be able to keep track of your current application status by viewing your Personal Profile after logging on. You will not be able to update or edit your Profile until after your membership is activated.
Mandatory and Optional Fields - All red-asterick * fields must be filled in. Other fields are optional. Since Rivanna Rifle & Pistol Club is essentially a self-help club, the members do most of the maintenance as well as administrative work, without pay. By operating in this manner we have kept our dues low and developed a closer relationship between members of the club. We'd like to know areas you can contribute. Specifying the type of shooting and activities that interests you is voluntary and lets us know where our membership's interests lie. For explanation of Membership Levels, see pages 1 - 3 of RRPC's By-Laws. After selecting your Membership Level, hit lower-right Next button to proceed to next page to continue the application.
Questions - Contact the RRPC Membership Committee with any questions regarding this process.
Submission of the following Application indicates that you have read, understood, and agree to these terms.
