Then arrange to attend any of our 50+ activities! Or you can come to one of our monthly luncheons and start meeting new friends! If you are coming to us through the Internet, we are assuming that you do not know any of our Branch 8 members who would host and guide you. Do not worry, we have a process in place to take care of that – just contact our Membership team at firstname.lastname@example.org, please be sure to include your full name and phone number. One of the team will contact you within 3 days.
We will contact you to get an idea of your interests, then assign a volunteer host who will call to introduce himself and invite you to an activity or to our next luncheon. We meet for lunch on the second Monday of the month (except June and December) at Boundary Oak Golf Club. Together, you will set a time and a place to meet, your volunteer host will also make a luncheon reservation for you (choice of meat or fish dish). At the luncheon, he will take you to the Welcome Desk for a name badge and Branch information then on to the Lunch Ticket Table where you will be the guest of the Branch for lunch.
Your host will also introduce you to other members who either lead or participate in those activities you would like to consider joining and/or who had similar work experience. You will then join him at one of the luncheon tables for the meal and the monthly program. At the conclusion of the luncheon, we will ask you to stay for a few minutes to fill out a comment form. This feedback on your SIR visit experience helps us to improve our branch procedures.
After sampling our activities, or by the end of the luncheon, you may already know that you want to join. If so, you can ask your host to be your sponsor, complete the application and return it to your sponsor.
If you are ready to join now you can Click here to display the Application form. Fill it out and submit it and Membership will contact you to review and discuss next steps.
You may also participate in any of our fifty or more activities as a guest. Once the BEC has accepted your nomination, you will be welcomed as a member. The entire process can be as fast as one month, depending on scheduling times. Your sponsor will continue to assist and guide you as long as you both are members.
What does Sir Branch 8 offer you?
We are very confident that you will find Branch 8 is part of a GREAT organization, one which can fill your social and friendship needs beyond your, and partner’s, expectations. We encourage Activity participation, and we will gladly mentor and guide you in the establishment of a New Activity if your favorite activity is not available.
What does Branch 8 expect of its members?
We have just four expectations of our members:
• Volunteer when asked –give it a shot
• Be a friendly, sociable guy
• Participate in our activities, luncheons, and events
• Bring guests and introduce them to SIR so we can perpetuate the organization.
Branch 8 has long recognized the absolute importance of membership volunteers, we see them as the lifeblood of our branch; we simply would not be as strong, nor as vital as we are today, without our valued volunteers! We welcome and encourage all new members, to “JOIN US & JOIN IN” by volunteering for any activity or position that suits your vision! We feel Branch 8 is the BEST because of the support from our Branch 8 Volunteers!
Join us and enjoy an active and socially fulfilling life.
