|Information about Joining|
|How can I join?|
|If you are interested in becoming a
member of Round Table then you must meet certain criteria: You must be
male and between the age of 18 and 45, you must have a legitimate
occupation and you must be able to attend at least 60 percent of your
host Table meetings.
If you meet this criteria then contact any of these members(hyperlink) who will be happy to give you more information and arrange for you to come along to one of our meetings. If you are still interested then you will be invited to further meetings and eventually, if your commitment is sincere, you will invited to become a Guest of Table. After several meetings as a Guest then you will be invited to become a full member of Round Table and at an agreed meeting will be formally inducted into table. It is only at this stage that you will be eligible to apply for any of the posts and to vote on community issues at meetings.
|What does it cost?|
|As with any organisation there is always a cost. Burgess
Hill, Haywards Heath & District Round Table currently agree on a
monthly charge of £30:00. This fee pays for capitation, insurances,
meals at meetings, social meeting costs, annual social events and international liaison. The
charge is reviewed annually and is agreed by all members of Table before
implementation. If you cannot attend a meeting then you must inform the
club secretary two days before the meeting. In these circumstances your
monthly dues towards your meal are held in account. Failure to notify
non-attendance will result in forfeiting the cost of the meal (your
mates will use the money for beer!) and you may also be fined £1.00
which goes to charity.
It's not a bad deal. At the start of the evening there is usually a drinks float of around £5.00 per head. A night out with some mates, food and beer provided for as little as £15:00 and doing something worthwhile for the community is something you cannot get into trouble with your partner for!
|Can my wife or girlfriend join?|
|No!. Round Table is a strictly Male only club. However, there is Ladies Circle which is the sister organisation to Round Table. Two clubs are closely linked and may often join forces when fundraising in the community.|
