Who can apply for membership?
Anyone who can demonstrate that their job or business has a direct relationship to the resources industry can apply for membership.
Do you have corporate memberships?
No, the Mining Club only offers individual memberships in order to keep a direct relationship with its members. More than one person from the same company can apply for membership.
How is membership structured?
Membership is the same price for all members – we do not distinguish between different corporate entities. In order to maintain balance across the WA Mining Club membership, member numbers are monitored across a range of industry categories.
How much does membership cost?
An annual fee is due in January of each year. For members who join after June 30, a pro rata fee is calculated and members pay for the balance of the year they are joining, plus the following calendar year. An initial nomination fee is paid on acceptance of new members. The fee for members who join now is $261.25 (including GST), which covers the member until December 2013.
Do I have to be referred by a current member?
Yes, our constitution calls for all members to be referred via a member, but if you don’t know a member, we can arrange for one of our committee members to act as your referee.
How do I apply for membership?
Cassandra will forward you the online application for you to complete and return. It then goes to the membership committee for review. You’ll be notified if your membership application has been successful. This process can take up to four weeks.
Can I attend events as a member as soon as my application is approved?
Unfortunately, until your membership is approved and the invoice is paid, you will still have to attend our events as a guest and pay the non member price.
What happens if my membership is not successful?
We are more than happy for you to remain on our database to receive invitations to our events as a non member. As we are working to maintain a balance across all industry sectors, your membership might not be successful for a period of time. We regularly review our database and if we find we have vacancies in a particular sector, you will be contacted again to see if you’re still interested in membership.
Benefits of membership include:
- Discounts on Club events such as lunches, Golf Day, Gala Ball and St Barbara’s Day
- Access to member-only events
- Ability to promote corporate services in Club publications
- Priority reservation and ability to pre-book whole tables for events
- Notification of events prior to general promotion (often sell-out)
