Current members were approached asking if their children would be interested in joining the lodge. We have now twenty eight new members, including eight transfers from parents to children.
Membership now stands at 50, plus 1 Summer member. (Total 51 ).
The maximum membership is currently set at 50 members and to increase the membership further will require a submission to an extraordinary general meeting.
Explanatory Notes for Membership Applications:
1. New Members
To apply for membership of Trissana, an applicant must complete the 'Application for Membership of Trissana Ski Lodge Incorporated' form, (available as a download - see right hand panel: Membership Documents), and be nominated and seconded by two existing members of Trissana Ski Lodge.
The form must then be emailed/mailed to the Membership Officer (Anthony Graham - email: firstname.lastname@example.org).
The application will then be considered by the Committee (after an interview with the nominee) and if agreed, the following payment must be made.
A Special Resolution was passed at the 14th AGM held 6 June 2017, to increase the non-refundable joining fee from $1650 to $2650. The membership fee for Trissana Ski Lodge is therefore a Club non-interest bearing debenture to the value of $2350 (repayable on resignation) plus a non-refundable joining fee of $2650 making a total of $5000. The membership will also be subject to an annual subscription, currently set at $400.
If the Committee determines to approve the nomination for membership, the nominee must pay (within the period of 28 days after receipt by the nominee of the notification) the sum payable by a member as entrance fee and annual subscription. If payment (the full amount is payable) is not made within the prescribed time, the offer will lapse.
All applications will be considered by the Committee of Trissana Ski Lodge Incorporated and an application does not guarantee that you will be accepted as a member of Trissana Ski Lodge. As with any application to join a club, the decision of the Committee is confidential and no discussions will be entered into.
A full member may transfer their debenture to another member of their family with the approval of the Committee. The new member then becomes liable for the $2650 non-refundable joining fee (full amount to be paid on approval) and for any other monies owed.
3. New Member of a full Member's Family
A member of a full Member's family may join the Club (If vacancies exist) by payment of $5000 in full or payment by instalments. If paying by instalments, a deposit of $1250 is paid and the remaining balance of $3750 payable over three years at the minimum rate $1250 a year, giving them a Club non-interest bearing debenture to the value of $2350, and be subject to annual fees or levies applying to the category of membership being joined. See side panel regarding instalment payments for a member of a full member's family who wish to join the Club.
A member of a full member's family who joins by paying instalments shall be entitled to use the Club facilities but shall not be entitled to voting rights until the full $5000 has been paid.
