An ordinary member is anyone over the age of 18 years. Ordinary members must sign an application form, which must also bear the signatures of two current voting members of the club (a proposer and a seconder). Once you have registered online, you will be emailed the application form. Once the completed application form has been returned, it will be submitted to the Committee for a decision, which you can expect within 2-4 weeks.
Ordinary members are entitled to full membership benefits, which can be found here: Member Benefits. The cost is $40 a year, with renewals due every year from the last date paid.
Country members must reside more than 50km from the Dowerin Post Office and shall not be entitled to attend or vote at general meetings of the Club, nor shall they be eligible for election as officer bearers or members of the Committee. They will receive all other membership benefits, which can be found here: Member Benefits. The cost is $20, with renewals due every year from the last date paid.
Country members are not required to sign an application form and do not require a proposer or seconder. Your membership will be approved by the Club Manager and you can expect a response within a week.
