===How To Contribute===
 +
Pincher Creek SAR is very appreciative of the ways you support
 +
the organization. We try to make it easy for you to contribute to
 +
the degree that you feel comfortable. This document is a summary of
 +
the ways you can be involved in Pincher SAR. The details are in the
 +
policies adopted by the organization. You can get a copy of those
 +
policies by asking any board member. To maintain your basic
 +
membership (associate membership), you must be involved in one
 +
activity of any nature, in support of Pincher SAR at least once a
 +
year. That could be a meeting, a search, a training exercise, a
 +
course, a task or anything else like that. General meetings are
 +
held the first Tuesday of every month at 19:00 (7:00 pm) for a few
 +
minutes before the training. To be able to vote at general
 +
meetings, you need to have attended two general meetings in the
 +
last 12 months. Voting membership is approved, usually
 +
automatically, by the board. Elections for the board are held in
 +
October. Any voting member can run and is highly encouraged. To be
 +
called for a search, you need to maintain your SAR Fundamentals
 +
certification. The certification course is held over 2 weekends
 +
once a year. You can also attend a course outside of Pincher Creek.
 +
To maintain your certification, you need to participate in two
 +
searches or mock searches every year. In order to be called about
 +
training activities or be called for a search you must keep your
 +
contact information up to date with the Membership Coordinator.
 +
Your contact, as well as other types of information, is in the
 +
Membership binder which is available at meetings. Always keep that
 +
info up to date. If you don't have an answering system, you may
 +
miss some messages. Regular monthly information is commonly
 +
circulated via email. Be sure to include that address if you have
 +
one. There are many things we do to keep the organization able to
 +
do its work in the field. If you feel interested in any of these
 +
areas, your help will be appreciated. Let any board member know,
 +
and they can help you get involved.
