Membership in Civic Clubs
PURPOSE The purpose of this policy is to encourage CALS senior staff to participate in local civic clubs to build better relationships with the community leadership of the CALS service area.
ELIGIBILITY All senior staff members who report to the Director, branch heads, department heads, and those staff members who, in the Director’s opinion, perform duties of high public visibility shall be eligible for financial support for civic club memberships.

The status of any civic club shall be determined by the Director.
LIMITS OF FINANCIAL SUPPORT On approval by the Director, eligible staff members shall be entitled to reimbursement for any annual membership fee not to exceed $100.
