Understanding SHARED membership type: Not officially a type of membership within BCHC, this term is used by the Membership staff to refer to a growing portion of our group. Many of our FAMILY memberships involve persons with DIFFERING LAST NAMES residing at the same address. In order for each of TWO voting (adult) persons to be listed on membership rosters under their own last names, we must handle their records a little differently. (Note: BCHC must insist that both parties reside at the same address to qualify for the FAMILY membership.)
