As of March 2012, the value of an Equity Membership share is $1,900. Owning a share guarantees your swimming privileges every year and confers voting rights on major decisions which affect the pool. You will pay annual summer dues, which are set by the Board of Directors at a discounted rate.
The 2017 Equity Membership season dues are $300 for the first adult swimmer and $80 for each of the next three additional swimmers in the household. There is no charge for additional family members beyond the first four, or children under the age of 2. The Nanny/Caregiver fee for Equity Members is $80.
The fee to maintain your membership but be inactive for the summer is $100. Equity Members who are away for a season may transfer their swim privileges to renters.
Equity Summer Membership dues must be paid by May 1, 2017. Dues not received by May 1 are subject to a $50 per month late fee.
When and if a member wishes to redeem their share, there is a procedure outlined in the bylaws. Please note that an MPRA Equity Membership is an asset separate from one’s home. However, transferring a share to buyers upon the sale of your home is permitted and can make your home more attractive.
