Associate Membership

When members move, some wish to become involved in the nearest Sub Branch, but are loathe to break ties with the "old" Sub Branch.

Associate Membership of either the old or new Sub Branch can permit a person to be a member of both.

A member who becomes an Associate of another Sub Branch, is only permitted to vote, speak and hold office at one Sub Branch. For more information, contact your local Sub Branch or simply download, print and complete the Declaration of Associate form and take to your new branch.
