JOINING THE CLUB – NEW MEMBERS
Any person who has a bona-fide interest in radio or electronics can apply to join the club.
To be eligible for full membership you must hold a current valid Amateur Radio Licence.
For Australian residents, this will be a licence issued by ACMA. All grades of licence are eligible.
If you don’t have a licence, you can join as an Associate Member.
Membership applications should be made on the tear-off section of the form downloadable here – membership + information 2017
Applications may be posted to the secretary, or submitted in person to a committee member.
The committee will then vote on your application at their next meeting. The easiest way to join,
is to attend a monthly committee meeting, introduce yourself and complete the paperwork.
If you are voted in, then the appropriate subscription must be paid within one month.
Subscriptions (fees) become due on January 1. If you haven’t renewed by February 1,
your membership ceases until you renew.
