What are my obligations and responsibilities once elected to membership?
As a member, you are expected to keep your account current and honor any payment arrangements entered into upon acceptance of membership at Longue Vue. We would ask that you familiarize yourself with club policies and by-laws. Above all, we want you to enjoy the value of membership at Longue Vue.
What happens if I move away from the area and cannot use the club?
If you find that your career or other circumstances dictate that you move out of the area, you may transfer your membership to Non –resident status. Longue Vue has members living in other states and countries who enjoy the many privileges of membership when they return to Pittsburgh for business or pleasure. If you were to resume residence in the Pittsburgh area in the future, your membership status could be transferred back to Charter or Social, as your needs require.
May I come out to “try“ the club?
