MEMBERSHIPS 2022-23

Last Updated: 03 March 2022

Registration will open for REGULAR and ORDINARY members on March 1st, ASSOCIATE members registration will open on March 10. Registration and payment will be done ONLY at Colwood Pacific Activity Centre this year.

The Associate member's sponsor must be registered and paid up before the application will be approved.  Any Associate applications that are received before March 10th will be deleted and not processed.   For the regular and ordinary members once your membership has been approved do not delay in getting into finalizing and paying for your membership.  With new procedures, the registration procedure could be lengthened due to the new location of registration.  You must be a paid member to register for any CFBEGA event and we don't want you to miss out on one due to members not following through and completing the membership process.

As COVID Protocols are still in effect and continually changing we need to remember that the NPF staff are doing their best to accommodate us through the application payment process which will be at the Colwood Pacific Activity Centre.  There will be lines that people will have to wait through, please be patient and considerate of the staff, and the occupants of the building (it is a childcare centre)

READ BELOW TO MAKE SURE YOU APPLY FOR THE CORRECT MEMBERSHIP CATEGORY

CFBEGA memberships are valid from April 1 until the end of March the following year. You must re-apply every year, or your membership will not remain valid. Previous membership does not guarantee future membership, and a valid sponsor must be listed for dependants and associate members.  Junior dependants (16 Years and under) will be offered FREE membership as long as their parent/legal guardian is a regular or ordinary member.

CFBEGA members may join Golf Canada and BCGA and maintain a handicap online through the Golf Canada handicap system. This can be added for an extra fee of $25 with membership application.

To apply for a CFBEGA membership you must:

  1. Fill out the online application (Selectable from the main menu under the memberships tab)
  2. Membership Directors will vet the application for accuracy and email you the approved application form in a timely manner. Usually within 5-10 business days.

Membership Application Guidelines

Last Updated: 11 May 2017

 

 

 

The executive would like to express concerns of the recent membership application process. Recently there has been too many requests of “instant” memberships, especially those related to associates. Please be reminded that an associates membership cannot begin their process until the sponsor member has paid for their membership. Once that is complete a membership executive on their own time has to arrange to stop at the kiosk once, maybe twice a week and collect the paperwork. From there the membership executive will send the paperwork for the associate. As stated on the website the process for all memberships takes between 5-10 business days.
