The admission of Ordinary Members is by Petition, signed by the Petitioner, Proposer, Seconder and two additional Supporters, all of whom know the Petitioner personally. The proposer and Seconder must be Ordinary or Honorary Life Members who have been Ordinary members for a minimum of two years. The additional Supporters must be Ordinary or Honorary Life Members.
The completed Petition and supporting letters from the Proposer and Seconder should then be lodged with the General Manager. The Petitioner is interviewed by the Membership Committee and Council who will then usually add the Petitioner’s name to the waiting list (currently one to two years long) , on payment of the Registration Fee (currently £300).
If you’re new to the area and don’t know any current members, that doesn’t have to be a problem. Just speak to our General Manager who will be delighted to arrange an informal, introductory meeting with our Membership Committee. The Committee is always happy to connect proposers and supporters with potential new members.
