A vote by the Executive Board once each year, normally the first board meeting after the Change Of Watch (COW). Is usually awarded to a surviving spouse who is not a member, but who has been active in the Squadron. The Honorary Membership is usually only done for one or two years after the death of a spouse. This does not require any expense to PBSPS other than the cost of the LOG each month. This membership does not hold any regular membership or voting rights.
The Commander needs to notify the USPS Ensign for the 'Last Horizon.' Information and address can be found in the Ensign. The squadron makes a $100.00 donation to the Squadron's Legacy Fund in memory of the member as well as providing an opportunity for members to make donations at a subsequent dinner meeting. See the Legacy Fund remembrance procedure for the processes used regarding Squadron memorial donations.
The COW is the responsibility of the incoming Commander. The location, menu, and entertainment are at their discretion and the committee appointed to help with the event. Arrangements for the location should be made well in advance.
See our Charitable Contributions Policy for the necessary Executive Board approval for all charitable gifts given in the name of Poverty Bay.
