There are two forms of memberships to the RMBL. All members of the RMBL agree to support the mission of the organization and make an annual donation. “Friends of RMBL” are any individuals, organizations or businesses that are interested in supporting the RMBL but not in voting for trustees or on other RMBL matters. “Voting Members” are individuals interested in voting on RMBL issues, and who meet one of the criteria listed below. All applications to become a “Voting Member” are voted on by RMBL Members. Those requesting Voting Member status will automatically be accepted as “Friends of RMBL” until voted into membership. To remain an active RMBL Voting Member, you must maintain a donation, in any amount within the period of the last 24 months.
