Southside Beekeepers Club Inc is adjusting it's annual membership renewal date to match the CALENDAR year - January to December.

Currently the membership follows the Financial year upto and including the AGM meeting in July 2018.

Membership renewal payments will be accepted from July 1st 2018. All Members are required to renew their membership by August 1st 2018 to be fully financial

To change over to the new Calendar Year Membership the club will be asking current members to renew membership for 18 Months instead of the standard 12 months. This will take their membership up to the end of the 2019 calendar year.

The Membership renewal will consist of the current annual membership renewal amount plus 1/2.  For example a single membership renewal of $40 (12 Months)  will now be $60 ($40 + $20) for 18 Months making the Membership valid for the complete 2019 Calendar year (to Dec 31 2019)

Any NEW members joining the club between July 1st 2018 and December 31st 2018 will be given the same once off 18 Month New membership option.  This will consists of the 1 & 1/2 of the 12 month fee plus the new membership admin fee.

If any current member is unable to make the increased payment for any reason they will be able to make a 1/2 year payment to bring their membership up to the end of the 2018 Calendar year. They can then renew their membership for  the standard 12 Months for 2019 January - December Year.

All new membership payments made from January 1st 2019 will be a 12 month Membership valid until December 31st 2019.

If you require further clarification on this please visit our contact page and send a message to our Membership Manager and they will be able to explain it further.

We thank all our members, new and renewing, for patience and understanding.  These changes will make the administration of the club easier and give clearer definition of your club membership status.


Thank you,


Treasurer,  Southside Beekeepers Club Inc
