> I have a question. If a family membership is not counted as a voting member, can an individual who holds a family membership hold an office since technically they do not receive the blackstar but it comes to their family's home.
> I maintain a sustaining membership, and am an officer, but if my partner who is just a family member wishes to hold an office, can he do so, or does he have to upgrade to a sustaining membership
I have not seen any requirement for a particular membership type with
regard to holding an office (or voting for that matter). My wife has a
family membership and is an officer. She has a blue card, and all
privileges associated with that type of membership. There are only two
disadvantages to her having that category of membership: a) she does not
count as a sustaining member for the shire in which we live, and b) if
she goes to an event and forgets her card, she cannot use a copy of the
Black Star to verify membership (the BS is delivered in my name).
