This also applies to Associate Members and their house guests and to renewable privilege ticket holders. Cottage owners must inform renters of their responsibilities to purchase Assembly Privilege Tickets and must see that fees are paid. Everyone over the age of three must pay fees.


Do I have to register each year, even if I don’t come every summer and is there a minimum number of weeks that I need to register in order to keep my membership?
No, you should only register for the years that you are here. If you can’t make it one summer, don’t worry – your membership status is still secure. Just register for the number of weeks that you will be here and using the facilities.
