MEMBERSHIP REQUIREMENTS

Three components are required for a member to achieve active status:

  • 8 Membership Points.  Active members must accumulate 8 membership points each academic semester.  These points can be acquired by attending socials and fundraisers, donations, physician recruitment, etc. 

  • 5 GMB Meetings and 3 GB Meetings per semester. (10 GMB and 6 GB for the year)

  • 2 BJC Events for ACTIVE STATUS and 4 BJC Events if TRAVELING. Our organization is responsible for purchasing medications for our clinics.  To afford these, our organization holds a fundraising contract with the Bryce Jordan Center, for which we work concessions in exchange for a percentage of the profit they stand makes.  In order to fulfill our obligations and maintain this contract, we require all of our active members to work concessions.

  • $10 Club Dues.  Active members are also required to pay dues to both Global Brigades and Global Medical Brigades at Penn State.  GB dues are $15 (for a total of $25) and you a get a T-shirt with each!

 

 

*One may apply for a brigade without being an active member, however active status must be obtained before his/her departure date.
