Membership By-Law (Article III)

3.1 Membership.
Membership in the Corporation shall be limited to persons interested in furthering the objects of the Corporation and shall consist of the applicants for incorporation and anyone whose application for admission as a member has received the approval of the Board, or a staff delegate.

Subject to the articles, there shall be two classes of Members in
the Corporation, namely, Class A Members and Class B Members.

Class A Membership shall be open to individuals who:
• Are twenty-nine (29) years of age or younger at the time of application;
• Self-identified as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, two-spirit, asexual or intersex; and
• Have applied for Class A membership and have had their application for Membership approved by the Board, or a staff delegate.

3.6 Transfer of Membership.
Membership in the Corporation shall not be transferable or assignable.
 
3.7 Class Transition.
If a Class A Member no longer meets the requirements for inclusion in the class by virtue solely of their age, that Member will automatically transition to Class B member the day the Class A member reaches the age of thirty (30) years old. If a Class A Member is also a Director of the Board at the time of transition, then Section 3.7 does not apply.

Any Member may withdraw from the Corporation by delivering to the Corporation a written resignation and lodging a copy of the same with the Secretary of the Corporation, such withdrawal to be effective upon receipt thereof by the Secretary.

Alongside the means of termination set out in the Act, upon 30 days written notice to a Member, and after giving such Member an opportunity to be heard, the Members may, by special resolution authorize the removal of such Member from the register of Members and thereupon such person shall cease to be a Member. Any Member so removed shall have no right of appeal, but may re-apply for membership to the Corporation.

The amount, method of payment, and notice of membership fees shall be set by the Board, from time to time. Class B Members shall pay a Membership fee yearly.

Both Class A and Class B members shall be entitled to one (1) vote at such meetings.
