Membership

Capricornia Potter’s Group Inc. is an association incorporated in Queensland.
Our club is governed according to adopted Rules of Association. Under these rules, the club has several types of membership available:

• Individual Membership – $40 per year (membership fee current as at 2017 AGM)
• Family Membership – $50 per year (membership fee current as at 2017 AGM)
• Associate Membership – $20 per year (membership fee current as at 2017 AGM)

The different types of membership involve different entitlement and responsibilities. For example, Individual Membership and Family Membership provide basically unlimited use of the club room and equipment (subject to relevant policies and practices) but do require members to volunteer a couple of hours, a few times a year, to open the gallery and shop on a roster basis.

Thinking… two opportunities which present, with the more members who join us:
1. Less volunteer hours required of each member
2. More public open hours for the gallery and shop.
We would be delighted if you would come with us on our playful clay-full adventure.

Members are responsible for purchasing their own supplies and consumables (such as clay, oxides, chemicals and personal tools), however members of the club do often collectively coordinate the ordering and delivery of supplies and consumables.
