OBHIC Membership Application Process
The OBHIC application is available in two formats, for your convenience.
Organization Membership Application Process:
- Download and complete the membership application. Include as appendices copies of the organization/program’s state licensing/certification and/or accreditation, an organizational chart, title page of liability insurance, program promotional material, copy of land use and other permits, and letters of recommendation from a program participant summarizing his/her experience, a parent and at least one from a professional referral source. Submit the completed application package to:
Andrea Burgess, Membership Chairperson
c/o Red Cliff Ascent
PO Box 1027
Enterprise, UT 84725
Or send a completed electronic copy in pdf format to Andrea at email@example.com
- The Membership Committee will review the application and follow up with any questions of clarification. Provided the application is complete and the applicant organization appears to meet the five membership criteria set out above, the applicant will be invited to attend the soonest OBHIC meeting, during which the applicant will have an opportunity to speak to the merits of their application. The member organizations shall each cast one vote on a motion to accept the applicant as a member, requiring a plurality of 50% plus one.
- Full member dues are payable upon acceptance to full membership. Our dues are determined annually by a majority vote of the membership and will fluctuate depending on the priorities for the coming year. For some perspective, 2010 dues were $1031 and 2011 dues were $750. There is a “Low Census Program Dues Reduction” equal to 50% reduction for programs with fewer than 2,500 service days, and a 25% reduction for programs with fewer than 5,000 service days.
