From the Membership Secretary

Membership currently stands at 1,072 with the vast majority being Wellington residents but over 250 coming from the Hutt Valley, Porirua, the Kapiti Coast and even a few from farther afield.

We welcome the following new members who have joined since October 2017: Lyn Crutchley, Maria Goncalves-Rorke, Jenny Jones, Alan Knowles, Judy Malone, Lesley Molloy, Antoinette Myers, David Probert, Patricia Swan, Paula Tarrant, Robert and Marjorie Thomson, John and Libby van Aalst, Basil and Patricia Wakelin, Owen Watson, Kristin Wickens, Bruce Congalton, Marilyn Davies, Brian and Linda Dawkins, Michael Lynch, David Mason, Trevor Mitchell, Kel Nairn, Vivien Rickard and Carol Couchman.

We are still holding a number of cards for previous members who did not renew their membership for 2017-18. If you know any previous member who would like to renew their membership for the rest of the current financial year, please remind them to visit the membership section of our website.

The new system of scanning barcodes on the plastic green membership cards has been working well since initial technical problems were addressed. All members are required to scan their card at the front desk in the Embassy foyer before attending the lecture. If you arrive at a lecture without your green card or evidence of your current membership you will be required to pay a visitor fee.

Volunteers will still be on duty in the foyer to welcome members, show them how to scan their cards, collect money from visitors and sort out any problems.

If you have any membership queries, please feel free to contact me by phone at 382 8296 or by email at
