There are currently 2 general members in addition to the Committee members.
Members have responsibilities in attending general meetings and AGM’s, and have voting rights to the businesses and directions of the organisation. Supporters of Cee4Life can apply to become members by submitting a written application to a committee member, and membership will be granted or rejected by decision at a Committee meeting. There is no joining fee to be a member.
Cee4Life also has Associate members, who are either members under 15 years of age or a sub-category as decided by the Committee. Currently we have Associate members to include our special friends overseas, but who are not required to attend meetings to fill a quorum.
