About Membership

Membership

Anyone who has in the past year volunteered for two or more hours toward the infrastructure of a KindleArts event or the Society, OR who has volunteered for six or more hours of Content Contribution is eligible for membership.

  • Team and event leads will track volunteer hours to the best of their ability.
  • Volunteering must directly support the Society and its events.
  • Any volunteer activity is counted as 30 minutes minimum – even showing up for a cancelled shift.
  • Performances are counted as 60 minutes minimum to account for practice and setup time.
  • Event leads, department leads, liaisons and team members are counted as giving away more than 2 hours.
  • Volunteer hours are counted as occurring on the final date of a multi-day event.
  • Volunteers who have gone on a period of active military duty in the past year, or who have taken a leave due to medical or family reasons, will have their volunteer time shifted forward by that period.
  • All members must provide a physical address according to the BC Societies Act. The address will be stored on KindleArt’s servers in the United States. KindleArt’s use of personal information is governed by the BC Personal Information Protection Act (summary: nobody is allowed to give away your information except under the US PATRIOT Act). There are no restrictions on country of residence.
  • We will make a reasonable attempt to contact eligible members who did not submit a physical address with their registration.
  • Notifications of General Meetings and other official Society business will be sent by email, if we have one on file, otherwise by post.
  • The Board of Directors may make other people members at their discretion based on other volunteer activity.
