§ 29–1115. Admission, suspension, dismissal, or expulsion of member.

(a) A person shall become a member and may be suspended, dismissed, or expelled in accordance with the association’s governing principles. If there are no applicable governing principles, a person shall become a member or be suspended, dismissed, or expelled from an association only by a vote of its members. A person shall not be admitted as a member without the person’s consent.

(b) Unless the governing principles provide otherwise, the suspension, dismissal, or expulsion of a member shall not relieve the member from any unpaid capital contribution, dues, assessments, fees, or other obligation incurred, or commitment made, by the member before the suspension, dismissal, or expulsion.
