Nomination Procedure

Every candidate for Membership must be proposed and seconded by 2 voting Members of at least 5 years adult Membership.  Unless the candidate is a candidate for Junior Membership, the nomination paper must be supported by 3 other voting Members acting as referees.

Nominations are tabled at a Membership Sub-Committee meeting prior to them being tabled at a Committee meeting.  Following this meeting, the candidate’s name will be circulated to all voting Members for comment.  The candidate and their proposer (or seconder) will then be invited to meet with two Members of the Sub-Committee to discuss their application and ask any questions they might have.  They will then be eligible for election as a Member.

Membership Nomination papers can be collected by an existing Member from the Club office, sent out by mail, or online forms can be requested by emailing the Club on The forms are valid for 3 months from time of collection.

*In the case of juniors, or recent arrivals from overseas, or other special circumstances where the period of membership, or association with the candidate, is less than five years, the Committee may still consider the proposal.
