Welcome to the Ronin Wheelers of New England membership request page. Please take a moment to thoroughly read through this section to ensure that you provide the correct information on your membership application as well as choose the level of membership that best suits your needs.
As our home page states, we are a family based association that promotes full family participation in all association event, functions and activities and whereas we are a Co-Op style of management, all Full Members of the Association have an equal standing in what transpires with all Association business. Although we have no formal hierarchy, there are elected Coordinators and Joint Coordinators to help oversee the day to day operations of the Association.

To qualify for the discounted rate a member must pay a minimum of one year in advance.
Membership dues for new members will be deemed in effect for the current quarter of their membership if their effective membership date falls within the first half of the current quarter. If their membership date falls within the second half of the current quarter they will not be required to pay membership dues until the beginning of the next quarter.
Upon request, the Association is authorized to maintain membership privileges at a reduced rate of 50% for the duration of a memberís Active Military status, including but not limited to, active Reserve Military duty and/or a memberís continued enrollment in higher education, including but not limited to part time enrollment in night and weekend classes.

Apprentice members will only be required to pay 50% of the membership fee and quarterly dues until such time that they achieve full membership. Apprentice members will not receive a club decal until they achieve full membership and pay the remaining 50% of the full membership fee.
