2020 New Member – Full Initiation May 19, 2017Each adult pays $550 for initiation. Check off ONLY the adult members, no dependents or other adults. New Membership Agreement The Garrett Park Swimming Pool Association, Inc. (GPSPA) is a private, non-profit 503(c)(7) club located in the Town of Garrett Park. Members are 100% responsible for the financial health of the Pool, primarily through the payment of annual dues. The Pool does not receive revenue from the Town of Garrett Park or Montgomery County government.Although dues are paid on an annual basis, Members join once (when they pay the initiation fee) and are required to maintain their membership through payment of annual dues until they choose to resign the membership entirely. Once a Member resigns, if they wish to rejoin, they are required to reinitiate in - paying the full initiation fee again - if they are eligible to rejoin. Initiation fees, dues and guest pass fees may increase by the Board of Directors in order to meet the Pool’s financial obligations. GPSPA memberships are paid on a per person basis. All household parent/guardians must be Members in households with children under 22 (Junior Members). Memberships may not be put “on hold” with the following exceptions: (i) A long distance move of at least 8 months. Extensive summer travel is not considered a long distance move, military orders (including temporary deployment) are. Documentation of the move may be required. (ii) In the event the Member is severely injured, faces a life-altering disability, or passes away, the Board of Directors may refund or forgive their annual dues payment. The Board of Directors reserves the right to suspend or cancel a Member/Junior Member’s privileges at any time without notice due to non-payment, inappropriate behavior, theft or damage, or any breach of this agreement by the Member, Junior Member, and/or their guest(s), as applicable. If the Board of Directors cancels a membership, all dues and fees paid at that time are considered fully earned and will not be prorated or refunded.
