Members selecting this option are electing to pay a hold fee to suspend their membership account for one (1) season. This will preserve the membership to be reactivated in future seasons, without the need to re-apply and pay a new initiation fee. A Seasonal Hold anticipates and expects the account member(s) will have no use of the club or club facilities during the season, including as a guest. Memberships may not be suspended for more than two (2) years.
From the IH Club Rules of Conduct: Board may grant a temporary leave of absence. In order to be eligible for suspended membership status, a member must have no outstanding balance with respect to dues, assessments, initiation fees and house charges. While on leave, the right to use the Club facilities and the right to vote shall be temporarily relinquished.
