Prospective members shall apply using the prescribed Application Form and may only be elected by a majority vote of members present. New members should be proposed and seconded by a current member and, by way of introduction, we hope that you would all be at your election meeting. Election is only completed on payment of subscriptions. Click here to download the Association's prescribed Membership Application form (updated March 2016). The form is an Adobe PDF file (78Kb). You can then print it (A4 size) before submission. The completed Membership Application Form should be submitted to the District Secretary by no later than the start of the business meeting in which the membership proposal is to be heard. Prospective members are asked to verify they are eligible for membership by confirming they have read the Rules of the Association.
Ringing Members and Non-Resident Life Members may be provisionally elected (via "Belfry Election") prior to a peal attempt by two Ringing Members of the Association and ratified at the next business meeting, the proposers being responsible for payment of a single-subscription (currently £8) and for ensuring the prescribed Application Form is completed.
