Applying for BGC Membership
(Requirements & Costs)
Due to our extensive waiting list, membership applications are NOT being accepted at this time. Those applications that were already submitted and reached the Membership Chairman’s hands prior to the Dec. 31st deadline will be processed for consideration. Current applications are reviewed by the Membership Committee, and recommended to the general membership for a vote at the November meeting. The number of new members inducted in January each year is determined by the number of dropouts from the previous year, as there is a membership cap for the club. A notice will be placed on the main page of this website when applications are opened again. Recommendation by a current BGC member (Sponsor) is required and it is mandatory that an applicant visit the club with his/her sponsor prior to submission of an application. Your Sponsor will submit your application online via the member’s area of our website. The sponsor must sign the application verifying that a visit to BGC was made by the applicant and will be your point of contact through the application process.
