Membership application, cancellation and termination
Anyone interested in becoming a member is required to fill in a membership application form and pay the requisite membership fee. (Allied School membership and Group membership applications must be approved by the Board of Executives.)
After receiving the completed form and the fee, the Association will issue a new member with their membership card, give them an official receipt and activate their membership.
If you wish to cancel your membership, you will need to inform the Association in writing. Upon receiving your cancellation notification, the Association will then issue you with an official notice which includes the date on which your membership will officially become inactive.
Neither full nor prorated refunds will be given to those who cancel their memberships.
If you wish to restart your membership after it has been cancelled, you are required to submit a new membership application and pay the requisite membership fee in full.
The Association reserves the right to terminate a membership if a member is found to be acting inappropriately or acts in violation of the core values of the Association.
Neither full nor prorated refunds will be given to those whose memberships are terminated.
Use of the membership card
Each member will receive a membership card.
If a member is in possession of more than one membership card, their membership will expire on the expiry date listed on the most recently obtained membership card. No requests to extend the length of a membership’s validity by aggregating the terms of the various membership cards will be entertained.
Members must present a valid membership card in order to take part in activities organised by the Association or to use the Association’s facilities.
Apart from those holding Life or Supporting memberships, all members must apply for an additional membership card and pay a surcharge if the original card is lost or destroyed. Their existing membership term and expiry date will remain unchanged.
Apart from Group memberships, a membership card is only valid when it is held by that member. The card itself cannot be transferred or assigned to any other person.
The Association reserves the right to request that members present their membership cards for verification by the Association staff whenever it is deemed to be necessary or appropriate.
