Membership at the TGCA
Community associations have the unique ability to mobilize, support, and interact with their residents to improve neighbourhood life in Calgary. Every day, they make significant contributions to the health, well-being, and quality of life in your community.
The TGCA is pleased to offer use of its facilities and amenities to the general public, but members of our association take priority in many cases.
Registered in 1956, the Thorncliffe Greenview Community Association celebrated its 60th Anniversary in September 2016.
Over the years, the membership has worked hard to build one of the largest community centres of its kind in Calgary. Today, the centre is primarily used by the membership for recreational, cultural and social activities, such as weddings, seminars, religious celebrations, children’s programs, seasonal community events and more.
The TGCA is pleased to keep our members informed on issues and topics that affect you and your neighbours, through your monthly community newsletter, our website, social media, and weekly membership emails. The board of the TGCA is active throughout the community in civic and infrastructure matters that affect residents directly.

It is an annual membership that begins the day you join or renew, and you will receive a secure profile and membership number on www.tgcacalgary.com which allows you to:
- Renew your membership
- Register for programs
- Buy tickets to TGCA events, and receive membership ticket prices
- Book meeting spaces, event venues, bowling lanes, and racquetball courts at member prices

Our membership fees are structured to enable Calgarians of all stripes to enjoy the facilities and benefits of becoming a member at the TGCA, but those who live in the Thorncliffe Greenview area receive priority pricing in accordance with our mandate as a community association.
We have a 1-year and a 3-year-membership (a 50% savings) for those who live in the community. To those outside of our bounds we offer a 1-year membership only, and, in the spirit of encouraging community spirit and participation, we also offer a discounted rate for those that hold a current membership to their own community association. However, please note that if you would like to take advantage of this feature, you will need to provide proof of current membership in our admin office when purchasing your non-voting membership.
