The Non-Refundable Joining Fee has not been increased for many years. We are now in a situation where there is more demand for new memberships than members wishing to sell debentures. Accordingly the committee has decided to increase the NRJF to $3000 + GST. The debenture cost remains at $4000.
The instalment amounts for juniors/intermediates have been reviewed accordingly. Existing junior and intermediate members will not be affected by the increase. The increase in the initial fee for new juniors is modest, with the bulk of the increase being applied at the intermediate stage.
The threshold age for intermediate memberships will increase from 17 to 18. This will also be matched by adult accommodation rates beginning at 18 years of age.
