There are four categories of Membership available within the RCA Association. Please refer to our Join Us page for information on becoming a member of the RCAA.
All serving Artillery members of The Royal Regiment of Canadian Artillery.
Retired or former serving Artillery members of the Canadian Armed Forces who have paid the annual individual membership fee.
The fee for Ordinary Membership shall be at a rate that may from time to time be determined at an Annual General Meeting.
Serving or retired members of other Canadian Forces occupational classifications or other Artillery Officers of NATO or other Commonwealth forces acceptable to the Association and who have paid the annual individual membership fee.
Civilian persons who have a special interest in the affairs of The Royal Canadian Artillery Association, who have paid the annual individual membership fee, and who are acceptable to the Association.
The fee for Associate Membership shall be at a rate that may from time to time be determined at an Annual General Meeting.
While there are no specific criteria for Life Membership in the RCAA, such membership will normally be granted to those members who have made a career of service to The Royal Regiment of Canadian Artillery.
Any serving or retired member of The Royal Regiment of Canadian Artillery may make application to become a Life Member of the RCAA. An Ordinary Member may propose any serving or retired member for life membership in the RCAA.
Such application or proposal shall be submitted to the Secretary accompanied by the Life Membership Fee and a service history of the applicant or nominee.
Such properly constituted application shall be examined by the Executive Committee who may grant the application/nomination for Life Membership and so inform the member in writing.
The fee for Life Membership shall be at a rate that may from time to time be determined at an Annual General Meeting.
Elected Honorary Life Members
Any person who is deemed to have rendered outstanding service to the Artillery may be elected an Honorary Life Member of the Association at an Annual General Meeting. His/her record of service in The Royal Regiment of Canadian Artillery will normally be the dominant factor in selection.
Nominations should be submitted to the Secretary 30 days before an Annual General Meeting accompanied by reasons, and where applicable, by a service history. Such nominations will be examined by the Executive Committee who may submit their recommendations to the Annual General Meeting.
Voting will be by all eligible voters present on each name submitted.
Rights of Membership
At the Annual General Meeting all members who have paid their dues will have the privilege of full participation in the proceedings to include voting.
All Members may propose a resolution to an Annual General Meeting providing that another Member seconds it.
