Membership fees


All new applicants are charged their Membership Fee and an application fee of $50. This is a one-time fee charged when applying for your new membership. After this, your renewal will be due by your anniversary date, and providing your membership fee is paid within the grace period (14 days).


All renewals must be paid by your anniversary date. All renewals after the grace period (14 days) will be treated as a new application and will therefore be required to pay the application fee.
