I. Prime Time
Prime Time is a club of skiers who enjoy skiing with other members. A regular schedule of skiing includes a plan to
meet regularly at Sunday River. Additionally, active outdoor events and other social activities take place throughout
the year as a result of member interest and leadership.
Membership in Prime Time stipulates that:
A. At least one member/partner must be over the age of 50; the younger partner is considered a full member with the
same privileges. Each member has one vote. Guests (of any age) of members are welcome, but the member must inform
his/her guests of the provisions of Section II D.
B. The payment of nominal annual membership dues – the amount of which may be adjusted from time to time, but is
designed to be inexpensive – is due for the forthcoming season by September 15th or the Fall Annual Meeting, whichever comes later, after which a late fee will be assessed.
C. Members in good standing, aged 80 or more as of the Prime Time Ski Club annual meeting, are eligible for free membership. This free membership request must be made to the membership chair.
D. Members take part in club activities with the understanding each member and guest accepts full personal responsibility for his/her actions and that Prime Time will not be held liable for any misfortunes. To that end, the applicant must sign a Waiver and Release-of-Liability in the form approved by the Executive Board.
Officers of the club include a President, Vice President, Recording Secretary, Membership Secretary and Treasurer. These officers comprise the Executive Governing Board.
A. The President presides over all meetings of the club and executive committee, appoints chairpersons of various club
activities, coordinates all club activities, and arranges to communicate information about them to all members.
B. The Vice President assumes the duties of the President when she/he is unable to perform them, and assists the President
in carrying out her/his duties.
C. The Treasurer collects membership dues, accounts to the membership for club funds, and maintains the necessary banking relations. A joint “Prime Time” bank account is to be established so that the signature of either the Treasurer or the President allows access to money in the account. Single line item expenditures may not exceed $100 (one hundred dollars) without the approval of the majority of the Executive Board. Additional monies, which are not part of the club treasury, may be collected to support club activities. These monies are not the responsibility of the Treasurer.
