NEW MEMBERSHIP FEES

New members will pay $100 which is made up of a Joining Fee of $50 plus the annual Membership Fee of $50. Payment can be by cash, cheque or bank transfer as outlined on the Membership Application Form. Membership is for a financial year which expires on June 30 each year. New members joining in May to June will be given full membership for the next financial year.

New members are entitled to club regalia (PMEA polo from the Regalia Officer and name badge from the Treasurer) as part of their Joining Fee after three months, subject to active participation during that period.

MEMBERSHIP RENEWALS

The financial year is from July 1 to June 30. Renewal notices are communicated to members via meetings, email, Club Magazine and/or post. Annual Renewal Fee is $50 payable by cash, cheque or bank transfer.

It is anticipated that members will participate in Club meetings and events. The Club reserves the right to decline renewal for members who, in the opinion of the committee, fail to engage sufficiently in Club activities without good reason.

A person becomes an unfinancial member of PMEA and loses all voting rights if they fail to renew before the due date of June 30.

A consequence of not renewing by June 30 means that you are no longer a financial member of a Roads and Maritime Services registered car club. After this date, if you have Historic Vehicle Registration it will be illegal to drive as your registration and insurances will be invalid, not to mention potential associated fines.

Membership will lapse unless the Renewal Fee is paid by September 30. Late renewal may incur a re-joining fee of $100.

AGE

All persons aged 16 years and above will be considered for membership to PMEA.
