The New Milford Rifle and Pistol Club has a set membership application process All new members join as an Associate Member. Associate Members have key/code access to the outside club grounds and ranges. After 1 year an Associate Member can petition for full membership. All regular members have key/code access to the building facilities and ranges at all times. A member must maintain at least a yearly membership with the NRA and full understanding of the clubs by-laws and Policy/Procedure Manual is also required. There is a minimal work requirement of 12 hours per member, per calendar year. This is not only to simply "do work" but we feel that an actively involved membership helps develop and steer the future of NMRPC. We run several monthly events during the year along with general maintenance of the facilities and ask full participation of our members. This is most important to the success not only of the events but of the club as a whole.
The membership application is a 2 month process. To become a member you have to attend one of our regular meetings and have with you a completed application (you can fill one out there), proof of NRA membership (you can join at that time for a discounted rate), completed PA Criminal History Background Check (PATCH) and your dues payment in full. This meeting will consist of a "meet and greet" style introduction. You must be sponsored by a current member in good standing and you may be interviewed by another member. At the next regular monthly meeting the application will be read again and voted on and you will be contacted with the results of that vote.

General Meetings - 7pm, 2nd Thursday each month
The Monthly Regular Meetings of the New Milford Rifle and Pistol Club are held on the 2nd Thursday of each month and begin at 7pm. All meetings are held at the club house. These meetings are usually brief and give the members a chance to ask questions, express an opinion or get to know the club better. At this time we also handle the business of the organization as each member has a say in how the club functions. We entertain reports from various commitees such as Rifle, Pistol and Trap. At times there will be special reports from seasonal commitees such as By-Laws, Father's Day Chicken BBQ, Nominating and Trustees. There is also a full report from our Delegate to the Susquehanna County Federation of Sportsmen's Clubs where we discuss the activities of that organization and weigh in on issues that affect us as Hunters, Anglers and Trappers as well as various conservation concerns.
