How to Apply for Membership

Welcome to All Santas, Mrs. Claus and Other Christmas Performers

From our By–Laws:

Section 3  MEMBERSHIP 

3.1 Membership shall be open to all people of good will who embrace the ideals of Santa Claus and his service to children.

3.2 All applications for membership must be approved by a simple majority of members present.

3.3 All members are expected to participate together in harmony for the good of the entire organization.

Application

  • All new members and renewing members need to omplete the application process every year.
  • Memberships run from February 1, or from whenever they join, through January 30 of the following year.
  • For special services to the Society, a member's membership may be paid for a year. However, that member still needs to submit a new application, including a new background check and proof of insurance for that year.
  • Youths under the age of 18 must have parental permission to join and must have the background check and insurance as explained below.
  • Spouses of members are also invited to join.
  • Spouses who do NOT perform as a Christmas character and do NOT actively assist a member at an event may join for 50% of the regular membership. While not required for non-performing actively assisting spouses, all members are encouraged to have the additional protection of general liability insurance.
  • Spouses who DO perform as a Christmas character or DO actively assist a member at an event may join as a regular member at the full price with a background check and proof of insurance.

Annual Background Check Required

All membership applications must include a background check not more than 60 days old. This can come from your state Bureau of Investigation, FBI or other service accepted by another Santa organization such as International Brotherhood of Real Bearded Santas (IBRBS) https://www.ibrbsantas.org/bgc_clearstar.html or Nationwide Santas http://nationwidesantas.com/member1.html

Liability Insurance Required

All membership applications must include a copy of their performance liability insurance with a minimum coverage of three million dollars annual aggregate, three million dollars per incident including coverage for property damage, personal injury, medical expense, courier service/gift delivery and allegation of sexual misconduct.


This coverage must be in force from the date of application through the end of the same year.


Any insurance agent or company should be able to provide the coverage you need. However, we generally see a substantial savings in buying through a Santa organization. Here are two of them...
