Common Questions about Membership

Common Questions about Membership

Do I have to be the only one in my profession or line of work to join?

No.  We believe that variety is the spice of life and that professionals in the same industry can have productive discussions without treading on each others toes.

Can I come as a guest before joining?

You can!
Book into an event and join us for breakfast to see how you like the group. If you like what you see then simply fill in the form, pay the invoice that will be sent to you and you’ll be a member!

Are there any member obligations?

To be a member, all you need to do is turn up to breakfast and keep up with your membership dues. Some members meet outside the meetings to collaborate or socialise, but this is entirely up to them.

Will I need to get up and speak in front of everyone?

You will be invited to introduce yourself at your first meeting and have the opportunity to share news about your business with the whole group at any meeting.  However, you may prefer to talk to people more one-on-one or just those at your table for breakfast.

What’s you policy on proxies or subs if a member can’t come to a meeting?

If you can’t attend, you can send a substitute, but there is no membership requirement to do so. Please let us know if you cannot attend so we can adjust catering numbers.

What is the joining process?

Fill in our form  and you will hear back from our membership coordinator.  All the members will be notified of your application. You will be sent an invoice for the joining fee and first quarter meeting fees and voila! You’re in!!

There is an initial joining fee of just $50! This includes a listing on our website. Plus quarterly fees of $200, applicable even if you are unable to attend.
