New Membership Information

Interested in becoming a member? Our membership is a family membership, which means if you have a spouse and/or children under 21, you will all be under one membership. If you are married or have children (under 21), you must sign up for a family membership. We have a single membership for those with no spouse and/or children under 21.

We have two types of membership; active or passive. Both memberships allow you to enjoy our many themed dances (about once a month) at a discounted price, dance in our groups, receive a quarterly newsletter, and be part of our continuing growing family.
The difference between the two types of membership is that active members may participate in our annual elections. The cost to become a passive member is $90 for passive family ($50 activation fee and $40 yearly fee) or $80 for passive single ($50 activation fee and $30 yearly fee). Each year you will pay the yearly fee to renew the membership. To become an active member, it costs $130 for active family ($100 activation fee and $30 yearly fee) or $120 ($100 activation fee and $20 yearly fee). Each year you will pay the yearly fee to renew the membership.

It is easy to join. Just download the application and fill it out. Please fill it out in its entirety. Since we are an all-volunteer organization, we will also ask for volunteering. If you are able to volunteer, please indicate where you would like to work. Your information will be given to board members in charge of those areas and will contact you. If you already know an active member, they can sign the proposed by, if not, Allison Burdeshaw (the membership secretary) will sign for you. Once the application is complete, send it along with your check to:

German Family Society
3871 Ranfield Rd
Kent, Oh 44240.

Your application will be voted on during our next meeting (once a month), then your membership card will be sent to you and your check cashed.
