BCL Membership Application
This application is intended as a way for current co-op members to get to know prospective members. The current members will review applications prior to membership meetings.
Please bear in mind, there are no correct answers to any of the following questions. Try to answer as honestly as possible and know that we are not looking for specific qualities in applicants beyond "cooperative."

Through January 2019, we will be accepting new members on a rolling basis. Starting February we will be collecting applications for two rounds of admission, filling half our open rooms with each round. The first deadline for application is March 1st, with decisions by March 20th. The second deadline for application is May 1st, with decisions by May 20th. Those who do not secure a spot in the first round may be encouraged to reapply in the second.
