Membership

Interested in joining Hilltown Riders? Check out the information below for answers to many common questions regarding dues, meetings and work credit.

Dues

Annual membership is $200 per household. This includes all machines insured under the head of household, and all riders residing at that address. Please keep in mind this does not apply to non-member riders using a member’s machine, as they are considered guests and must possess a guest pass issued by the Membership Secretary.

The Hilltown dues cycle runs from 6/1 – 5/29 of the following year. Members pay the full yearly rate their first dues cycle, a prorated rate based on join date their second year, and full yearly rate for subsequent years.

Work Credit

Work credit may be issued for members who help out at various sanctioned work parties and special events throughout the year. While credits and rewards are subject to change and must be approved by the board of directors, typically they are as follows:

12 Work Credit Hours = $100 Credit toward Annual Dues (Applied next renewal cycle)

35 Work Credit Hours = $200 Credit toward Annual Dues (Applied next renewal cycle)

Proof of Insurance

Proof of insurance is required for all machines ridden at the club. Copies of insurance cards must be provided to the membership secretary whenever a machine is added, a carrier is changed, or as expiration dates are updated (typically during yearly renewals).

Meetings

General meetings (which include new member votes) are held the second Wednesday of every month. Locations are posted in the Events Calendar

Board meetings are held the fourth Wednesday of the month. Please note that while board meetings are open to all current members, they are closed to potential members. We ask that any current member who wishes to speak at a board meeting please email the board first so that we may put you on the agenda. Items not on the agenda will be considered at the presiding board members discretion.

Membership Process

If you’re interested in joining Hilltown Riders, please fill out our Contact form and select “Join/Request a Tour”. After filling out a few lines your basic information will be submitted to our volunteer tour guides who will then set up at time to meet with you and show you around the club. This is a required component of the membership process  and must be completed before you receive your stickers and membership packet.

Generally we prefer to follow a specific sequence of events for new members wishing to join. Over the years we’ve found this to be the most pain free for our members involved in the process, and although it may take a bit longer, helps us ensure all new members are read and understand the same set of rules.

  1. Fill out the contact form and submit your basic information
  2. Set up a time to take a tour and go over the club rules with a designated club tour guide
  3. Be read the rules, discuss any issues and sign all necessary applications, waivers, acknowledgments of risk etc as required by the club
  4. Take the tour
  5. All signed forms will be conveyed to the club officers by the tour guide at the next general meeting
  6. Potential members will be voted on at the next general meeting and either notified in person (if they choose to attend) or by receipt of their membership packet by mail
