Membership

Overview

The Membership Department is responsible for handling requests for new membership and updating the community profile with new information gathered from surveys and census data. The Membership Department is likewise tasked with keeping an updated voting list for the purposes of community votes and to facilitate the work of an Electoral Officer hired during votes for Chief & Deputy Chief. The Membership Department is managed by the Membership Clerk and reports to Chief & Council (i.e. the Board of the MoCreebec Eeyoud).

Applications for membership may be submitted to the Board in writing when the Board is convened at a meeting, or by delivering the application in any written form to the Chief, Deputy Chief or Secretary at any other time, in which case, the Chief, Deputy Chief or Secretary shall present the application to the Board at their next meeting. A Clan Council Representative may submit applications on behalf of waahkumaakich of his or her clan and individuals for whom such applications are submitted shall be notified by the Clan Council Representative, Chief, Deputy Chief or Secretary of this fact as soon as possible after the application has been submitted on their behalf and shall be informed of their right to withdraw their membership upon their request.
