          b. Those individuals who were at one time members, according to the qualifications contained in Section 2.1, but who no longer possess those qualifications for the period of one year; or 

          c. Any interested individual who does not qualify under subparagraphs (a) and (b) above may apply for an associate membership. Applicants for associate membership must first be recommended to the membership by a majority vote of the Board of Directors, and then approved by a two-thirds (2/3) vote of the membership present and voting at any regular or other membership meeting. 

An individual who qualifies under any of the provisions set forth in this section shall be known as an associate member, and must re-qualify on an annual basis; provided, however, that an associate member who initially qualifies under subparagraph (c) above, and who has kept his or her associate membership current and continuous, need not be reapproved by a vote of the board or membership to re-qualify annually.
