Membership Information

Join Us

Membership in Zonta International and the Zonta Club of the Conejo Valley Area is by invitation only. We are an international women’s service organization dedicated to advancing the status of women locally and globally through service and advocacy. Membership is a responsibility that requires time, resources, and financial commitments.

Membership Eligibility and Classification

Membership is open to executives or professionals in recognized business, institution, or professional occupation. They must be working at least 50 percent of a normal week and willing to support the objectives of Zonta. Member classification is based on occupations and the Zonta classification system consists of 38 categories based on the International Standard Classification of Occupations.

Our Open Invitation

We invite you to attend and participate in our monthly dinner meetings, fund raisers, and special activities. This will allow you to get to know our dynamic members and assess your interest and eligibility in Zonta. The better you get to know us (and we get to know you) the better you can assess if Zonta is a best fit for you.

Member Responsibilities

As a member, you are responsible for regularly attending club and relevant committee meetings. You must pay all dues, fees, and assessments promptly. You will be called upon to serve in leadership roles and give your time, talent, and enthusiasm to the organization. You are also responsible for identifying and recommending prospective new members. As time and resources allow, you are encouraged to also attend area, district, and international meetings, workshops, conferences, and conventions. We are an active service organization in the Conejo Valley Area of Southern California and are committed to making a difference in the status of women in our community.

Membership Process

The membership process is very straightforward.

First, the membership committee reviews your application and determines if you meet the eligibility requirements (both you and your sponsor need to complete the application). These requirements include you must be an executive or professional in a decision-making position in a recognized business or profession working at least 50 percent of the normal work week.

Second, the committee forwards the application for review and approval at the next monthly board meeting.

Third, the summary of your application information is posted in the club newsletter, and your nomination is considered by club members for 10 days. If no member protests or questions your eligibility, you will be mailed a letter inviting you to join our club.

Membership Application

The membership form is specific to our club. Please complete Section I and ensure your sponsor completes Section II.
Once this is done, please return the form to our Membership Chair.

If you have any questions about Zonta, please feel free to contact your Sponsor, the Membership Chair, or any of the contacts listed on this Web site www.zontacv.org. We are dedicated to ensuring your membership in Zonta is a mutually rewarding experience both now and in the future.
