Become a Member

SALTS is a registered charity federally and a non-profit Society in the province of BC. Memberships in our Society are available to individuals, families, and companies who are deeply supportive of and passionate about our mission: to develop the spiritual, relational, and physical potential of young people through sail training, shipboard life, and associated activities in a Christian environment.

Members may receive invitations to special events and discounts on activities such as day sails, but the only reason to become a member of SALTS is to support the mission of SALTS. You do NOT need to be a SALTS member to participate in a day sail, so please do not take out or renew a membership for that purpose. For more day sail information click the day sails link on the home page or under the Tall Ships tab in the top menu bar.

Members are able to vote at our annual general meeting on important matters, including the election of members of our Board of Directors. They play an essential part by forming the legal entity that holds the Board and Executive Director accountable for good stewardship and the fulfillment of our mission.
 

Memberships Types:

Membership dues are paid each year for the calendar year and are tax-deductible, less the value of any membership benefit received (e.g. a member's discount on a day sail will be deducted from the tax receipt). Tax receipts are issued in January or February after the term of membership expires, so that we can calculate and subtract the value of membership benefits received (if any). For example, a membership fee payment in January 2016 for membership year 2016 will be receipted for tax purposes in early 2017. New membership fees paid before Sept. 15 in a given year will result in a membership expiry date of Dec. 31 that same year. New membership fees paid after Sept. 15 will result in a membership expiry date of Dec. 31 the following year.

Membership Details Rate
Single Single vote. $50 per calendar year
