Annual Membership Meeting

Bickerdike’s membership is the centerpiece that connects individuals in the communities we serve to our work.


Members come together once a year at the Annual Membership Meeting, where they…

  • Are apprised of activities
  • Vote to elect members to our Board from among their peers
  • Vote on resolutions regarding the organizational direction
  • Celebrate the accomplishments of another successful year



Membership Meeting details are typically available in October of each year. Learn more here.
