Who can become a member?
Heart of Ohio Santas welcomes any naturally bearded Santa (exceptions are made for those with medically related issues) or Mrs. Claus who is a current member in good standing of IBRBS.
Both Santas and Mrs. Clauses are full members and receive all the same rights and privileges. Mrs. Clauses who wish to be included in the members directory or to vote in elections for participate in surveys need to pay a separate set of dues and complete their own application.
