What is the amount of SIHS P&C Financial Membership?

The annual subscription (membership fee) of $1 is per member per person. The new member will be able to have voting rights in the following meeting.

Is this the same as a Voluntary Contribution payment?

No. A ‘financial member’ of a non for profit organisation (eg. SIHS P&C) is someone who has satisfied the requirements of formal membership of the organisation (ie. payment of membership fee of $1 based on SIHS P&C constitution). A financial member must ‘consent’ to become a member of the organisation and as such earn the rights and obligations as a financial member under the law that regulates our P&C (ie. Federation of P&C Association NSW) and our own SIHS P&C Constitution.

NB. SIHS P&C ASSOC INC is a member of and follows the guidelines set by Federation of Parents and Citizens Association NSW. Our constitution and by-laws are prescribed by Federation of P&C Assoc NSW. For more info please click to Federation of P&C Assoc NSW page.
