Conduct of Members

After tabulating and analyzing the results of a membership survey regarding fraudulent transactions, the Garand Collectors Association Board of Directors developed the following policy. This policy is now in effect, and the Board encourages all members to read it carefully.

Conduct of Members

Section I.

Actions and performance of members that are not in the best interest of the Association and its membership shall be grounds for termination of a membership. Termination of membership shall mean permanent barring from any GCA function and elimination from the membership roll and shall be by action of the Board of Directors. Grounds for termination of a membership could include and are not limited to the following: nonpayment of dues, dishonest, fraudulent misrepresentation, malfeasance of office, conviction of a felony, issuance of insufficient funds check, dishonor or disgrace of the Association.

Section II.

  1. Any member in good standing may file with any member of the Board of Directors of the Garand Collectors Association any complaint regarding transactions, dealings or relationships with any other GCA members. All complaints must be in writing, email, or email attachment, and complete details must be included. No verbal complaints will be considered under any circumstances.
  1. The Board of Directors will investigate all complaints and insure that all parties involved have a chance to explain their positions. The Board of Directors may take such action as it deems necessary to resolve complaints that reach the Board of Directors. The action of the Board of Directors is final. The decision of the Board of Directors on any matter of complaint shall be considered in the best interest of the membership of the Garand Collectors Association and shall not subject the Board of Directors or any member thereof to personal liability
