Message to Present and past Members of APOA:

Season Opener Social:
The Season Opening Social originally planned for Saturday, Dec 8th. is now set for the following Saturday Dec 15th., The Place: Apex Mountain Inn, Time: 5 – 9 PM. Drinks: $6, Complimentary Appies. In addition to us being able to renew acquaintances, there will be an opportunity to hear the latest news from our APOA Forestry Committee, from the management of Apex Mountain Resort, and the RDOS.

Annual Membership Fees Due:
The APOA fiscal year begins Jan 1st, so it is time to renew your annual membership. Membership remains just $30 for the entire year. Current APOA members can renew their membership by mailing a cheque for $30 to APOA, PO Box 23016, Penticton, B.C. V2A8L7. Or you can pay by cheque or cash at the Season Opener Social on Dec 15th. For anyone joining APOA for the first time, please visit our website at, print and fill out the membership form, and mail it and your $30 cheque to the above address. Or just come to the social and fill everything out there!

Termination of the APOA Strata Membership Option:
For the past 3 years the APOA ran a trial of having 2 types of membership: individual property owner, and strata unit owner. The goal was to make it simple for strata property owners by giving their strata council the option to submit a single APOA membership fee for all owners of the strata. The APOA board reviewed the results and concluded that having the two types of membership was actually causing considerable confusion for property owners, many of whom were unsure whether or not their strata had actually signed up. More importantly, the APOA still had to get explicit permission from each of the strata unit owners before we could email them information. To be compliant with the Canada Privacy Act, strata councils cannot just provide their owner’s emails to the APOA. So it turns out the strata membership option was not actually simplifying things for either the APOA or strata property owners. Therefore, the board voted to terminate the strata membership option.
