Who can become a partner member?
Any active volunteer registered with The YMCAs of Québec or any donor not employed by the YMCA who has made a minimum $100 donation in two of the last three years can become a partner member. Partner members have an interest in the Y and wish to participate in a constructive manner, support its mission, and have been approved in accordance with the criteria set by the Board of Directors. As a partner member, you play an active role within our organization by helping us fulfill our mission as a charitable organization that contributes to the development of spirit, mind, and body, and to the well-being of individuals, families, and communities.
Your rights as a partner member
The right to vote: You have the right to vote during The YMCAs of Québec’s Annual General Meeting to which you will be invited.
The right to be informed: You will be kept informed of the worked carried out throughout the year by those nominated to represent you.
The right to give your opinion: By sitting on various committees or councils, you may give your opinion, make suggestions, share your thoughts, and question the evolution of the organization.
Responsibilities of a partner member
