How to Join
There are two ways that you can become a member:
if you are not part of a Road Association, apply directly to the MLA;
if you are part of a Road Association:
apply directly to the MLA if your RA does not collect MLA membership dues from you; or
apply through your RA if it does collect your dues and sends it to MLA on your behalf. See below to avoid being registered (and paying) twice, if the RA is collecting memberships on your behalf.
For a Road Association that wishes to become an MLA Member as an organization, apply directly to the MLA using the Membership Form, and identify the individual who will be your representative and will exercise your voting privileges at Members' meetings.
Please consult the full text of the Membership Policy for further details and guidance.
Directly to the MLA
This applies to individuals or organizations. Please print and use this one the the following Forms to apply:
Membership Form for a one applicant
Membership Form for multiple applicants
Submit the application Form directly to the MLA by mail, email attachment, or even by hand to any of the Directors. We will provide a receipt for any cash payments. For organizations, the name to be used on the aplication form is the name of your authorized representative, which is usually your President but it could be any member of your RA.
E-mail payments are most welcome and should be sent to: email@example.com
We need your name and address as a minimum, to register you as a member. Although your email address is not required for membership, we would greatly appreciate also receiving this information to assist us in keeping you apprised of MLA activities.
Via your Road Association
If your Road Association has decided to submit annual dues to the MLA on your behalf, you will be registered as a member provided that the MLA knows who you are! Please ensure that your Road Association Representative submits your name and address along with the fee payment.
Although your email address is not required for membership, we would greatly appreciate also receiving this information to assist us in keeping you apprised of Association activities.
Attention Road Association Representatives:
If you are the Representative of your Road Association, the MLA thanks you immensely for the work you are doing on our behalf. We encourage Road Associations to continue supporting the MLA to give all our residents a stronger voice in the community.
Discount for Road Associations
At the 2016 AGM, a Resolution was passed to recognize the good work that Road Associations could perform on behalf of the MLA in generating memberships. The Resolution reads as follows:
IN CONSIDERATION: of the benefit provided to the MLA by Road Associations who undertake to register members and collect membership fees on behalf of the MLA, BE IT RESOLVED THAT: the MLA is prepared to recognize this effort provided that a Road Association achieves 100% participation in MLA membership from its members, AND if this condition is achieved, a Road Association may invoice the MLA for such services rendered, to a maximum amount of 25% of the total membership funds collected, whereupon the MLA will issue payment for the declared services rendered in support of MLA membership registration.
Note: for the purposes of this Resolution, "Road Association" includes: Road Association; Shore Association; Community Association; Property Owners Association, Rate Payers Association; or any similarly named organization.
For further detais, contact the MLA Treasurer.
