iii) be proposed and seconded by two financial Members of the Club.

iv) Return the completed Application Form to the Secretary signed by a Proposer and Seconder, who are financial  Members of our Club together with the prescribed Joining Fee and Annual Subscription.  (Check with the Secretary as to the amount due as there is a pro-rata cost.)

Country/Interstate/Overseas Members:

Applicants for Country/Interstate/Overseas Membership are required to be "Known" before being considered by the Committee for admission:
