Proposing a New Member

You are able to propose potential new members once you have been a Full Member for at least a year – and you are encouraged to do so. Applicants should also be seconded by another member who has also been a Full Member for at least a year.

Please copy and send this link to any friends or family wishing to apply for membership. If you would prefer to use a paper form, please request an application pack from the Membership Team.

When they complete the online application form, they will be asked which members are proposing and seconding them.

If you know someone who would like to apply for membership but you have not been a member long enough to propose them, or they do not have a seconder, please contact the Membership Team who will be able to advise you on the alternative ways someone can apply for membership.

If you would like any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact the Membership Team at or on 01372 229600 (9.00am to 5.00pm, Monday to Friday).
