5CLIR Member’s Home Program Policy
5CLIR programs and events may be held in a member’s private home.
5CLIR scheduled programs and events that are open to 5CLIR members are covered by this policy. These activities will be open to all 5CLIR members, following established registrationor sign-up processes open to all members.
Events that are open to the public may not be held in a member’s home.
5CLIR will publicize events held in member’s private homes in the same manner that all other 5CLIR programs and activities are communicated to the membership. 5CLIR member activities and events are communicated via the bi-annual program catalog, the monthly newsletter, and email reminders.
5CLIR makes every effort to provide handicap-accessible locations for its programs. To that end, member’s homes where a program is held should provide detailed information about accessibility, including descriptions of parking, entryways, lighting, toilet facility (floor level), and any other specific limitations about the location. The home must be in compliance with Massachusetts building safety codes, and be appropriately furnished for the intended activity.
Cancellation and inclement weather
Cancellation policy is the same for 5CLIR programs; however, the homeowner may choose to cancel their program, even if other programs are being held, due to inclement weather.
The homeowner is responsible for clearing snow and debris from drive and walkways, and for salting or sanding walkways.
Approval Application/ Agreement
The 5CLIR member in whose home a program or event is to be held must complete and return to the office the attached agreement prior to 5CLIR scheduling the program or event.
If the program is to be published in a bi-annual catalog, or published in any other advance listing, the form must be filed prior to the editor’s deadline. The agreement must be approved by the Office Manager, and will remain on file at the office
