Application Instructions

Thank you for your interest in the Pioneer Valley Yacht Club. Though we often have a
waiting list, WE DO EXPECT TO HAVE A LIMITED NUMBER OF OPENINGS FOR THE
UPCOMING SEASON. Space is quite limited and will fill quickly. New members must be
approved by our Board of Governors (BOG) on a first-come, first-served basis at our monthly
BOG meetings. Once approved, you will be notified and MUST remit payment within 10 days
or the membership offer will expire. When all spaces are filled, we will begin a waiting list and
your application will be considered in the order received if/when space becomes available.

1.  Please download and print the New Member Application and fill it out in its entirety.

2.  MAIL the completed application to the PVYC P.O. Box along with the $50.00 application
fee. Upon acceptance into the PVYC, this fee will be applied to your first year’s membership
dues. This fee is non-refundable.

Be sure that
two current PVYC members have signed as sponsors on your application for
membership.  If you do not know any PVYC members, an interview will be set up with the
Membership Chair and a representative of the BOG.

Since first option for membership is given to renewing members who have until March 31 to
submit their renewal applications, you may not hear from the Membership Committee until
after that date has passed, regardless of when you submit your membership application.

Any questions about the application process or PVYC membership in general, please call or
e-mail me at 413 567-1710 or lcasearch@aol.com

Linda Abrams, Membership Chair
