Joining the Frontiersmen

If you are interested in becoming a Frontiersman, there are 4 ways you can join:

  1. Joining an existing Troop
  2. Joining a Troop as an affiliate member
  3. Forming a new Troop

Joining an Existing Troop

All Troops in the Frontiersmen are autonomous – they make all decisions that affect their group amongst themselves. Therefore, units may accept or deny membership to whom they choose, based on their own criteria. If someone asks to join, the unit must decide if the person is a motivated, dependable, trustworthy, and a positive addition to the group. All requests will be reviewed by the leadership of that unit and then a final decision will be made regarding acceptance as a full member, affiliate member status, or denial. In no case are units required to accept people with whom they are not comfortable with.

Affiliate Membership

Affiliate membership refers to the state of working closely with an existing unit, but not as a full-fledged member of that unit. You will not be issued Troop patches nor have access to information or activities the unit deems private, but you will be invited to attend outings, training, classes, and be connected with their alert system.

Affiliate membership does not grant any right to be supported and/or defended by the unit as a full member; however it does allow you some familiarity with the unit if there is a situation where we all need to come together. Affiliate membership requires the permission of the Troop (as above).

Forming a New Troop

If joining an existing unit is not an option, you still have the option of creating a new one with your friends/family. New units may be created by any current member or by non-members wishing to become Frontiersmen.

When creating a new Troop, the candidate simply submits a contact form through this website and the Membership Committee will follow up on the best date to hold an online interview. After the interview, a decision as to the candidate's acceptance or denial shall be made. Details on how to organize a new unit are found in The Official Charter.
