Boat Owner Members

A member who is the owner or part owner of a yacht or boat registered with the Club and shall be entitled to all the rights and privileges of the Club provided that upon such member ceasing to be the owner or part owner of such yacht or boat he or she will automatically become a social member.

Life Member

A member or former member, regardless of ownership or part ownership of a yacht or boat registered with the Club who, because of long standing contribution to the Club or the unincorporated association known as the Myall Lakes Yacht Club or Myall Boating Club, is considered by the Committee of Management to be eligible for the bestowal of Life Membership. Such membership shall be recommended to the Committee of Management and approval sought at an Annual General Meeting or Special General Meeting. Life Membership will be immediately granted upon consensus being indicated by the majority attending such Annual General Meeting or Special General Meeting. A Life Member shall enjoy all of the privileges of a Boat Owner Member or Social Member but shall be relieved of the obligation to pay annual subscriptions.
