Pro Musica
Constitution
Membership
1. There shall be four classifications of members and all
    members shall be elected to membership as
    described in paragraph 3 of the membership section.
    A. Active performing members who will assume
        all responsibilities of membership
    B. Inactive members who are unable to attend meetings
        but wish to remain affiliated with Pro Musica by
        paying annual dues
    C. Associate members who will attend meetings and
        assume all responsibilities of active membership
        except performing and
    D. Emeritus (honorary) members who will not pay dues.

2. Membership shall not be limited to any specific
    number, but may be increased as the need arises, in
    order that Pro Musica continue the progressive policy
    established at its beginning, thus preventing its
    becoming a static organization.

3. A prospective active performing member's name shall
    be presented by a letter of recommendation written
    by an active performing member, signed by the
    sponsoring member and two other active members
    of Pro Musica, and shall be submitted to the screening
    committee at least one week prior to the next regular
    meeting.

    All other categories of prospective members may be
    presented by any member of Pro Musica by a letter
    of recommendation written by and signed by the
    sponsoring member and two other members of Pro
    Musica and be submitted to the screening committee at
    least one week prior to the next regular meeting.

    The screening committee shall consist of all officers,
    plus any additions at the discretion of the Chairman.

    Upon acceptance by the screening committee, the letter
    of recommendation shall be read at the next meeting,
    and voting by ballot shall take place.  An affirmative
    vote by 4/5 majorities of those present will be necessary
    for the election of a new member.
