1.6 Continuing membership within the same membership category will not require committee approval if it is renewed within the time allowed by the Constitution or these Rules. Changes of membership category will however require committee approval.

Other Considerations
a) Membership fees are payable annually and may be payable in instalments, provided that annual membership fees are paid in full by end November in each year.
b) The Executive Committee has the authority to grant discounts to persons requiring it - If finances are a problem just let us know - we would rather have members paying reduced fees than not participating at all.
