The Applications Process
All applicants over the age of 18 will need to request a Full Member application form from the Membership Office, either by emailing email@example.com with the candidate’s name and postal address, or by calling 01372 229600.
Each applicant must be proposed and seconded by two existing Full Members, with each of these holding membership of at least one year. A recent passport-sized portrait photograph must be included and a registration fee of £100.00 paid upon submission of your completed application form. The registration fee is waived for the sons or daughters of existing members under the age of 30, and for the spouse or civil partner of any existing member.
The Membership Office will write to acknowledge receipt of your fully completed application form. The application will then be placed onto the waiting list. Please note that, on average, applications take 12 months or more to be processed. While you will not hear further from us during this time, please be assured that we will contact you once your application has been reviewed. Please be aware that sons, daughters and spouses or civil partners of existing members receive priority on the waiting list.
Applications not fully completed on receipt will not be placed onto the waiting list until all the information has been provided.
Once your application reaches the top of the waiting list, it will be reviewed by the Elections Committee, who may wish to meet with you to discuss your application at this point. Any applicant may be asked to attend an interview with the Elections Committee at the Pall Mall clubhouse.
The Elections Committee meet once a month throughout the year (except in August) to review applications and undertake interviews. After each meeting, the Elections Committee will make its recommendations to the Board of the Club. Applicants will be notified of a successful outcome in due course. In the event of an unsuccessful application, please be aware that the Club informs both the applicant and the proposer.
