Who can be members?
Everyone who lives or works in the Glebe is eligible. We enroll members by household and all adults (18+) have voting privileges at the Annual GCA meeting in June.
A household is defined as all those living under one roof. This may be an extended family, a family with boarders or a group of adults living together.
Why does the GCA ask for adult members’ name, phone number and email address?
We need this information so that the GCA can contact you, should an urgent issue arise. We’ll only contact you if there is an important development in your immediate area, for example, a street closure or a controversial development proposal. If you’ve agreed, we’ll also email regular summaries on GCA issues.
The GCA needs to know about its demographic so that we can honestly claim to be representative of the community. If challenged, the association must be in a position to know who is a member and how many members we have.
Why does the GCA ask to know the number of children in member households?
This helps us represent the community when issues arise pertaining to our children, for example, when school boards discuss opening or closing schools in the Glebe.
How does the GCA protect my privacy?
Information collected is exclusively for the use of the GCA and is never provided to any other organization. However, if a member does not want some of this information to be recorded, we will respect their wishes.
What if I can’t buy online?
The Glebe Community Association’s May membership campaign involves numerous volunteers. You may not be home when our representative knocks on your door, however you can still join the GCA by completing the membership form in the brochure, downloadable below.
You can send the form in by mail or take it to the Glebe Community Centre.
The cost to join is minimal — an annual membership is only $10.00 per household.
