CHC membership has been divided into the following five categories:
General Member: This membership category is open to holders of a Master or General level falconry license issued by the State of California. California residents holding a General membership may vote and hold office within the CHC.
Apprentice Member: This membership category is open to holders of an Apprentice level falconry license issued by the State of California. California residents holding an Apprentice membership may vote but may not hold office within the CHC.
Affiliate Member: This membership category is open to any organization or individual not qualifying as a General or Apprentice member. Affiliate members may not vote or hold office within the CHC.
Family Member: This membership category is open to immediate family members of a "sponsoring" General, Apprentice, Affiliate, or Honorary Lifetime member. Family members do not receive separate CHC mailings, but do receive the rights and privileges of any other membership category for which they otherwise qualify. Family membership terminates concurrent with membership termination of the sponsoring General, Apprentice, Affiliate, or Honorary Lifetime member.
Honorary Lifetime Member: This membership category is reserved for individuals designated by the CHC's Board of Directors for extraordinary and unique contributions to the CHC and the art and practice of falconry.
Members renewing General or Apprentice membership must reside in California, must possess current federal and California state falconry permits. Non-licensed members and members residing outside of California receive Affiliate membership. Affiliate members are unable to vote on matters under consideration by the CHC, but in all other respects receive the same rights and privileges as General and Apprentice category members. Family members seeking the rights and privileges of a General or Apprentice member must demonstrate that they meet the General or Apprentice member licensing and residency requirements.
