(B) by adding two (2) subsections to include:
(I)Subsection “1. Resident Membership” which shall contain the same qualifications for membership as currently listed and read:
(i)”All legal and qualified voters under the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia who reside in Albemarle County, who are in accord with the principles of the Republican Party, and who express in open meeting, either orally or in writing as may be required, their intent to support all of its nominees for public office in the ensuing election may participate as members of the Republican Party of Albemarle in its mass meetings, party canvasses, or conventions and are eligible for membership on the County Committee.”
(II)Subsection “2. Associate Membership” which shall contain the following qualifications and read:
(i)  “Non-residents of Albemarle County who are in accord with the principles of the Republican Party, and who express, in writing or in open meeting, if required, their intent to support all of the Republican nominees for public office, are eligible for Associate Membership on the County Committee. The County Committee shall require each potential Associate Member to submit a membership application form to the Secretary along with an annual dues payment. The County Committee must approve each Associate Membership by a majority vote. Because this Membership applies to non-residents, an Associate Member shall not have any voting authority, nor serve as any Officer, nor Chair any Committee. Associate Members are subject to the same grounds for removal as Resident Members, as listed in Article IV, Section G, excluding the grounds for removal listed in IV.G.1.1 (Attendance Requirement).”
(2)in “Section F: Dues”,
(A) by replacing the words “Each member” with “Each Resident member and Associate member.”
