We Want You!
Our members help us do all the cool things we do and support all the great causes we support. The more members, the more events we can do and the more money we can raise. Do you have what it takes to be a Northeast Ohio Ghostbuster?
First, the rules:
- As a group we have chosen to focus on all Ghostbusters media (films/ cartoons/comics/videogames/etc...) that takes place in the original Ghostbusters universe.
- Before joining all potential members will be interviewed. This interview is so we can get to know you a little better, go over our conduct policy, and answer any questions you still have about the group.
- You must be at least 18 years old.
- All new members are required to pay a $10.00/year ($15 for you and your spouse if you both join) membership fee. This helps us go to events, rent booths, and buy all the great things we sell in order to raise donations.
- All new members are required to submit to a background check. The background check, the cost of which is non-refundable, is not part of your membership fee. The average cost of the background check is $18.00
- Members are required to come to no fewer than THREE events and THREE meetings over the course of the year. We know you have a real big person job, so do we.
- Members must be able to GET TO and RETURN HOME from events on their own without relying on other members for a ride.
- All new members undergo a probationary period. The length of this period can vary based on the number of upcoming events we have scheduled when you join, the results of your background check, and/or your ability to come to events.
- All new members are required to attend their first event in civilian clothes. This is so you can get a feel for how we operate. If, after this event you decide you don't want to join, your membership fee will be returned to you minus the cost of the background check, that fee is non-refundable.
- After you've completed your first event you are welcome and encouraged to wear your flight suit to every event. If you choose to wear your flight suit, you are required to get a custom name patch. We require this as a safety percaution for outselves and the public.
- Don't cross the streams.
- No, seriously, don't cross the streams. It's bad. Also, don't look into the trap.
- What are you still doing reading this, there are ghosts that need caught and great causes to support!
