There are several steps involved when it comes to applying for membership to Karate Alberta.
Each club will have to complete the Initial Club Application Package. The package consists of the following:
- The Initial Club Application: This is your club membership summary and contact information.
- Application For Individual Membership – All existing members will need to complete this application form and sign.
Send completed package to Membership Officer along with check and the required Police Check for the Head Instructor.
The Membership Officer will review the application form and required documentation. If there is any missing information he/she will be in contact with the applying club to retrieve it. Once the application form is complete he/she will consult with Regional Advisor.
After consultation with Regional Advisor club will be either:
- Accepted as a Category B club with a probationary period of one year. Probation means that these members can not exercise their vote at any Annual General Meeting or Special Meetings during that period. Also they can not run for a board position during that time. Once the probationary period has expired a club is automatically given Category A status.
The Membership Officer will inform Board of new club and process membership application.
Karate Alberta will process the members documents, set them up on the membership software (Martial Member), and post their information on the Karate Alberta website.
