Membership Terms & Conditions
A prospective member may attend one meeting as a guest. Members then
decide whether the visitor should be invited to join. If invited to join, the
prospective member must complete a Membership Application Form and have
it signed by two current financial members of Toowoomba Backscratchers Inc.
This form should then be handed to the person who invited them so that the
nominator and seconder can complete their sections of the form.
The President announces new members at the next meeting.
Code of Ethics
Membership is not limited to one of each type of business. However, existing
members retain the right of veto, and are not required to explain their reasons.
Members are expected to attend breakfasts. If a member is unable to attend a
breakfast they should submit an apology in advance (the day before at the
latest) to the Secretary, or send a substitute.
If a member is unable to attend for a quarter but would like to continue their
membership they have two options open to them:
1) Have another person from their business attend in their stead; or
2) Request a ‘leave of absence’ for a maximum of six months – normal
membership fees will apply during this time and need to be paid within
the normal terms.
Should a member become un-financial or not attend (without requesting a
leave of absence) for a period of greater than one quarter (three months), the
relevant category/industry listing will be deemed open and a letter will be sent
to the member to advise that their membership has been finalised and
requesting payment of any outstanding invoices.
Membership will be $17.50 per week. Fees are payable in advance each quarter.
This fee covers the breakfasts, and Incorporation and administration costs.
Meetings will be held weekly on Tuesday mornings at Regents on the Lake, 87a Perth St, Toowoomba from 7am to 8am unless otherwise notified.
