Membership Information

Notices & Reminders

1. Send your membership renewals to VP of Membership. DO NOT SEND THEM TO BCHA. Sending to the wrong place will delay payment and cause your membership to show as expired so you cannot participate in unit events.

2. If you are paying for a membership that is not your own, notify the VP of Membership at time of payment. (PayPal does not have an option to attach a message when units or individuals pay for someone else’s membership.)

3. The BCHC Executive Committee no longer sends out membership renewal verification "green slips" via regular mail. Instead, each unit president and membership chair is sent a personal email from the BCHC VP of Membership with each units' data AND the membership data will be posted on the BCHC web page in the password protected section.
