This kind of situation is entirely dependent upon the household in 
question.  Some households are very informal and anyone who shows up to 
drink beer at the meetings is considered a member, while others are much 
more exclusive and do have more ceremony involved with inducting new 
members.  Households are not official SCA branches, and are essentially 
self-governing groups of people who share certain bonds of friendship, 
interests, loyalty, and so on.
