How long must I wait to be a member?The committee determines the number of candidates it can offer Full, Restricted and Provisional membership in June/July of each year.
Due to numerous variable factors that are taken into consideration when determining new member intakes each year, it is not possible to estimate exactly how long a candidate on the waiting list will have to wait before they are offered membership.However, we do know the nomination date of the latest candidates elected to membership in our intake for the 2021/22 season.
2021/22 membership intakeWaiting list candidates nominated from December 1, 2004 to August 31, 2006 inclusive will be offered Provisional membership.
The waiting list, therefore, will consist of candidates nominated from September 1, 2006 to today.
Those elected in the new intake will receive an offer of membership in mid-July 2021.
