How to become member
Joining the Krewe is easy. An application with a $25 dollar application fee are required. After three months in prospective status, the Krewe votes on admitting members to full membership. Once you are admitted to full membership, you must pay the full annual dues for the year in which you join. Dues are currently $250. You will be notified at the time you submit your membership application of any increases and decreases. You''ll be allowed to pay your full dues in two installments. Paying your dues on time is important. If you don''t, you lose your voting privileges while you have a delinquency, and eventually you lose your membership.
What''s expected of our Krewe members?
The expectations placed on you as a member depend, to some degree, on what you want to get out of the Krewe. The bylaws require simply that you (1) pay your dues on time and (2) serve on at least one of the Krewe''s standing committees each year. We have some members, particularly members from out of state, who don''t or can''t do more than that. However, remember that the Krewe''s activities are supported by voluntary contributions and are carried out by its members. So if part of your expectations are to raise money for charity, to enjoy the Krewe float in the annual pride parade, or to have your guests in a position of honor at the annual Mardi Gras ball, you need to plan to do more than simply have weight and occupy space. You should plan to attend the major Krewe fundraisers; work sessions for the pride parade float, and work sessions and rehearsals for the Mardi Gras ball (including post ball cleanup). We recognize that not every person can attend every event, but you should try to attend a majority. The more the members contribute, the more we can donate and the better time we can have doing it.
