Benefits of Membership
The TGCA membership has benefits for you, your family and the community
A strong community association is built on the foundation of its members, and the TGCA strives to bring ours more reasons to take advantage of what our association has to offer. Though we offer access to our facilities and amenities to all Calgarians, community associations are designed to operate with their members and the community as a first priority, as well as advocating for residents at City Hall in matters of local development and planning.
In voting at the TGCA Annual General Meeting-if you are a voting member-you are looking out for your neighbours, actively increasing quality of life in Thorncliffe Greenview, as well as contributing to the ability of the residents to have a voice in the development of the community. These decisions and processes may seem trivial but in fact have a vital role to play in things like property values and where monies are allotted from the City.
Along with the societal benefits, we offer our members-voting and non-voting-an array of others.
