Membership. At or over sixty years of age, each owner or part owner of a residential lot of Academy Village becomes a member of the ASA. Additionally, each non-owner at or over sixty who resides in or occupies a residential lot is also a member of the ASA.
The lot owner(s) are responsible to pay or to arrange payment of a monthly fee of $75.00 for each ASA member who resides in or occupies the owners’ lot during that month.
Note that the fee is required for each member who is a legal resident, regardless of whether he or she is physically present or not.
Note that the fee is required for each member who is a renter, regardless of whether they are physically present or not.
Note that no fee is required for visitors.
Residents of the Arizona Service Corporation’s (ASC’s) Villas will have all privileges of attendance and participation in ASA activities offered to either the Village or the surrounding community. Dues and fees for Villa residents will be negotiated between the ASA and ASC.
Member requests for waivers in paying ASA dues or fees will be submitted to the ASA President. The President will review the request, prepare an anonymous package that does not include the identity of the person(s) making the request, and present the package it to the ASA finance committee for approval. The packages will be approved or denied by the ASA Finance Committee. If no Finance Committee is formed, the request can be approved or denied by the Executive Committee or the entire Board.

Individual requests for this disability waiver shall be provided in writing addressed to the ASA President together with appropriate evidence from a health-care professional.
