Applications for Membership

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 thereafter be lodged with the General Manager. The Petitioner shall then be interviewed by the Membership Committee and Council who thereafter may authorise the entry of the Petitioner’s name on the Waiting List on payment of the Registration Fee determined by Council (currently £300).

If you are new to the area and do not know any current members of the Society, please advise the General Manager who shall arrange an introductory meeting with our Membership Committee who will be pleased to assist in finding the requisite number of proposers and supporters.

The Waiting List is presently one to two years long.

All other categories of Membership have immediate entry available (including Juniors) and application forms can be downloaded from this website.

Royal Burgess welcomes Corporate Memberships and packages are tailored to suit individual requirements with discounts offered depending on the usage of the Society’s facilities – an application form can be downloaded from this website.
