Yes, you can make a request to bridge a membership for out-of-state travel/residence. Other circumstances are subject to the approval of EHFC Management. Requests must be in writing and are to include the member’s membership card.
A bridge will be granted for a minimum of two months and a maximum of six months. Extensions after the original return date will be considered only if accompanied by a written request from the member. Failure to make a request will result in the member account being billed in accordance with the original bridge request.
Requests for a bridge that is retroactive will not be considered.
One-half the monthly dues will continue to be charged during the bridged period.
Memberships may not be down-graded (i.e. individual to midday) at the time of a bridge.
Upon completion of a bridge, the member will be responsible for picking up the membership card in the Member Services office.
All membership privileges are suspended during a bridge.
Members who pay EHFC dues annually will not be eligible.
