What is required to become a member at TCC?
Along with the membership subscription & application form, you will need to provide us with two personal references and the name of a proposer and seconder (existing TCC members) to support your application. If you do not know any existing members at the club please reach out to a Club Relationship Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will help arrange introductory meetings for you. We will contact your proposer/seconder to confirm their support for your application.
What is the difference between the subscription and monthly dues?
The subscription is a one-time payment whereas dues are charged monthly for the entire length of membership. No tax is applied on subscription.
What payment method is preferred for subscription and my monthly dues? Is there tax?
The subscription must be paid by cheque, however monthly/ annual dues may be setup as a pre-authorized payment through your credit or debit card or you can pay by cheque. There is no tax charged on the subscription but tax does apply on monthly & annual dues.
How is one elected to membership?
Every candidate must be nominated by a proposer and seconder. Balloting for the election of candidates for membership will take place monthly. Each candidate must receive at least 25 votes in favor. The process to become a member takes approximately two-three weeks, from the final day applications may be submitted (mid-month) to the official start date of your membership (first/second week of the following month).
My friend and her husband are current members. Can they act as my Proposer and Seconder?
Yes, of course. As long as they each hold an individual membership at the club we will happily accept them as your Proposer and Seconder.
With a corporate membership, how many individuals can I name as representatives of the membership (elected nominees)?
A corporate membership allows a company to own the membership and elect one employee to represent the membership. Only one employee can represent one corporate membership at any time. The advantage for the company is that they can “transfer”, for a fee, the membership to a different employee should the current representative leave the company/retire/switch roles/etc. A great recruitment tool! A company can hold as many memberships as they would like, however each representative will be required to pay the full subscription and monthly dues. Email us at email@example.com for more information on our corporate group rates!
The Non-Resident membership requires an annual fee versus monthly dues. Can I change to monthly payments versus annual?
Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate monthly payments for this type of membership. The fee must be paid on an annual basis, which is processed December 31st of each year.
Upon my death, or if I become unable to use my membership due to health or other personal reasons, am I able to transfer my membership to someone else?
Upon a members’ death, his/her membership could be assigned to a personal membership for the surviving spouse or son/daughter for $1, provided that the individual meets all requirements for balloting. If the member is considering relinquishing their membership due to health or personal reasons, they may gift their membership to a son, daughter or grandchild for a fee of $500.
I am a resident/corporate member. Can I bring guests to the club?
Yes, you can! You are welcome to bring guests with you to enjoy the club as often as you like. There is no limit on the number of guests you can bring, however reservations in the dining facilities are always advised. A guest fee does apply should your guest wish to use our Fitness Centre.
What forms of payment do you accept at the club other than charging directly to my account?
Only credit (Visa, MasterCard & Amex). We do not accept cash or debit.
My account is setup with my personal credit card; however I have a business lunch that I would like to charge on my corporate card. Can I do this?
Of course! If you would like to make a payment for a meal, room booking, etc. with an alternative credit card please just let our staff know and they will be happy to process that transaction separately, not to your account.
Is there a cost for guests or affiliate club members to use the Fitness Centre?
Yes, guests and affiliate club members are required to pay a drop-in fee for the fitness facilities of $20.48 (+ GST). However, there is no fee for immediate family during the weekends or holidays.
I thought Terminal City Club used to have a hotel?
We did. However, recently we have separated the Club and hotel. The hotel is now called the Auberge Vancouver Hotel. Members still receive discounts on room rates and guests of the hotel are welcome to use the Terminal City Club’s fitness facilities free of charge.
Who do I contact for information regarding Auberge Hotel Vancouver & the residential building?
Is there an advantage to prepaying all my dues upfront for the year?
You will receive a 2.1% discount for paying monthly dues in one lump sum at the start of the year.
I have a corporate membership and I would like to name a new representative as the primary member. How do I do this and is there a charge?
Please contact a Club Relationship Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org to make this request. The new individual will need to submit a new application form with a named proposer and seconder and will be balloted by our membership base. A new Membership Agreement is not required. The original agreement is still valid as the membership subsides with the entity. Once successfully balloted, the current representative’s membership will become inactive and the new individual will be the primary representative for your corporate membership. A transfer fee is charged in order to fulfill this request.
I am a member of TCC and would like my 18 year old son to attend the club regularly. Do you have a membership for this age group?
Available exclusively to the children of Terminal City Club members, the Intermediate Membership designation is designed for the 19 to 24 age group and requires no subscription. With monthly dues set at 50% of regular membership, this is a great opportunity for your youngsters to test out the club experience while enjoying all of the regular benefits of membership, including full use of the fitness facilities, access to the club’s restaurants and billiards room, and all of the networking opportunities that come along with membership in Vancouver’s premier club. The best part? On turning 25, the Intermediate Member has the option of becoming a full member for a $1 subscription and assumption of regular dues.
Does the club raise money for charitable purposes?
TCC grants an annual scholarship named the TCC Memorial Scholarship to be awarded to a student at the University of British Columbia. The award is currently $1,500 and awarded to a successor of an existing or alumni TCC member.
