Wolverley Owners Club Associate Membership Scheme

At times when there are no shares available for purchase, associate membership enables a 'prospective owner' to be involved with the Wolverley Owners Club as a legitimate user (on a ‘try before buy basis), prior to owning a share. Full members who wish to sell share(s) are required to offer them, in the first instance, to all other members so associate members will be well placed to purchase 'resale' shares as they become available and before they can be offered to non members.

An associate member has full entitlement to book time on board once the full members allocations have been made. Naturally, this will normally be winter weeks but see ‘Cancellations section below. An associate member will be bound by the various conditions as detailed in the constitution, code of practice etc. and will need to meet the same criteria for membership and sign the Associate Membership agreement.

Associate members pay a reduced and capped subscription, being £25 pcm, capped at £150 until the associate member has a holiday, when subscription would recommence. Subsequent subscription caps will be on a pro-rata basis. If an associate member declines to buy a 'resale' share that is available, he will be deemed to have given up his/her associate membership, without recompense, and to have relinquished any further entitlements.

Associate members can take part in any meetings of or consultation between members (in a non-voting capacity) and can be involved in work parties and boat movements that are not part of anyones allocated time. Naturally, they can also be invited to join members on board as crew. Cancellations: From time to time, members will find themselves unable to take a holiday week they booked during the previous autumn and if they are unable to trade it for a more suitable week then it will become a cancellation. Associate members will get first refusal on cancellations until such time as they have 4 weeks holiday booked during the calendar year.

Please see also the ‘Trading and Cancellations document.
