How to join

  1. Submit an online membership application (below). This is sent to Riverside’s Vice President and Membership Committee.

    NOTE: If you are interested in joining the Open Men’s Sweep team or Open Women’s Sweep team, please fill out the respective team application first to make sure the team is a fit for you.

  2. Attend a 30-minute orientation meeting that provides an overview of the club programs and services and discusses what is expected of members. Pay your dues and get a key fob. A Membership Committee member will schedule an orientation with you after you complete step 1.

  3. Directly following the orientation, attend a 60-minute 201 session to learn more about the club’s day-to-day operations. At this point, you temporarily have access to all facilities and equipment, but you are not a provisional member until you complete steps 4 and 5.

  4. Participate in a work party. Riverside depends on its members to clean, garden, wash boats, and perform routine boathouse maintenance. The best way to meet other members is to roll up your sleeves and get to work! It is mandatory that you participate in a work party prior to standing up for membership in step 5. Work party dates will be available at orientation.

  5. Come to the next general membership meeting to be formally voted in by the membership. The general membership meetings are held on Tuesday evenings March, June, September, and November. Check the RBC calendar for exact dates & times. Please note, this step needs to be completed by the 2nd quarterly meeting following clearance by the Membership Committee or your membership may be suspended.
