Membership in the Cherokees of Central Florida will be open to anyone whose behavior is not in direct conflict with the By-Laws and/or the interest of the Cherokees of Central Florida or the Cherokee Nation. However, membership in the Cherokees of Central Florida must be composed of no less then 60% Cherokee Nation Citizens. Membership will be defined as those that have paid their dues and not in direct conflict with the By-Laws. Annual dues will be set at $15 per individual, and $25 per household. All new members will be put on a probationary period of 6 months. Applications for non Cherokee Nation Citizens into the Cherokees of Central Florida may be put on hold in order to abide by the 60% requirement that Cherokee Nation Citizens compose a minimum of 60% percent of its members.
Membership in CCF is currently closed to non-citizens of the Cherokee Nation. For those non Cherokee Nation citizens that are interested in joining CCF, please email Bonnie Cappello at Cherokeesofcentralforida@gmail.com and request that your name will be put on a waiting list. You will be notified immediately when enrollment is open again. This is needed to be done in order for CCF to abide by our rules that a minimum of 60% of our current members be citizens of the Cherokee Nation. However, we encourage you to come to our meetings, regardless of CCF membership status. Thanks for your cooperation.
Cherokee Citizens, please provide copies of the front and back of your blue Cherokee Nation enrollment card.
