"Any individual residing, working or attending an academic institution in the borough of Brooklyn, New York, having a general preference for or any sympathy with the principles of the Republican Party and a desire to promote the objects of the Club, shall be eligible for membership in this Club. For good cause shown, the Board of Directors may admit to membership an applicant who does not fully satisfy these qualifications." (BKYR Bylaws Art. III, Sec. 1).
"Regular members, who are under the age of 40, shall have full rights and responsibilities of membership in the Club." (BKYR Bylaws Art. III, Sec. 2).
"Associate members, including members of the age of 40 and over, who shall have no vote and are ineligible to hold office in the club, but shall have all other privileges of membership in the Club." (BKYR Bylaws Art. III, Sec. 2).
"Application for Membership. The Board of Directors shall establish uniform requirements for membership applications. Any individual who wishes to seek membership in the Club must provide the information required by the Board of Directors to the Club in writing along with the appropriate payment of dues for the class and/or level of membership sought. The Board of Directors must act on approval or denial of such membership application within 30 days of its receipt. Any application that the Board of Directors fails to act upon affirmatively after 30 days from its receipt is hereby deemed approved. The Board of Directors may reject an application on the grounds that granting membership to such individual would be inimical to the best interests of the Club. The Secretary shall send written communication to inform an applicant of the affirmative approval or denial of his/her application, and in the event of denial, the Club shall refund the sum received for advance payment of dues. However, no application shall be considered approved for any reason during the period between the Regular meeting at which nominations for Club office have been made and the annual meeting at which elections are held." (BKYR Bylaws Art. III, Sec. 4).
"Payment of Annual Dues. The annual dues of members shall be payable on the first day of each calendar year. After the first day of the second month of the calendar year, members whose dues are unpaid shall cease to be in good standing and shall be so notified by the Treasurer. Such notice shall also inform the member that unless his dues are paid within thirty days from the date of the notice his name may be stricken from the roll of members. If his dues remain unpaid thirty days after the date of such notice, Board of Directors may strike his name from the rolls. The Secretary shall keep a record of all names so stricken." (BKYR Bylaws Art. III, Sec. 5).
