BECOMING A MEMBER OF BLAZEAID INC
BlazeAid is managed by a small Committee consisting of members with a diverse range of life experiences. Most members of the Committee have been BlazeAid volunteers for many years. We welcome people with considerable BlazeAid experience to apply to become a member and help steer the organisation into the future.
The organisation has two levels of membership, Associate Members and Members. Members have full voting rights at General Meetings. Associate Members do not have a right to vote but once they gain more experience in the workings of BlazeAid, whether volunteering at additional basecamps, co-ordinating a camp or attending meetings, they can apply to be moved from Associate Member to Member and possibly onto the Committee.
BlazeAid is governed by its Constitution which is a legal document, approved and registered with Consumer Affairs Victoria. Anyone wishing to become a member must submit an application which is then considered by the Committee. Membership is not granted automatically on the payment of the subscription.
From time to time, misleading information is circulated pertaining to membership by people intent on destabilizing BlazeAid. Becoming a member is a personal choice and we have never had ‘membership drives’.
An Application for Membership form can be download here and returned to BlazeAid. Each application will be dealt with by the Committee on their own merits. People with BlazeAid experience are especially welcome to apply for membership but it will be at the sole discretion of the Committee to approve either Associate Member or Member. If you think you have something to offer BlazeAid, please apply for membership or at least enquire with a Committee member whose contact details are listed under the tab ‘Contact us”. We welcome your inquiry.
