Membership - Join Us / renew.

If you are interested in anything to do with wood, then we extend to you our invitation to visit us.   You can arrive as a visitor up to three times, ANYTIME the club is open.  You cannot use equipment (other than the coffee machine!) until you become a financial member, but you can get a feel for the activities, facilities and meet other like-minded Woodies.  And, subject to COVID19, you can also join our club members on the 1st Wednesday of the month (7:15PM, closed Jan) at the monthly Member's Meeting night..

 

No experience with woodworking is needed, although a passion and interest is expected.

(Please note the club does not offer formal tuition, members simply informally share their knowledge.)

Our Club members will be only too happy to share their general woodworking experiences and hospitality with you, but remember, they too have their projects to do as well!  However if you desire to participate in a particular wood speciality, join a project group and become involved in some of  the activities we regularly enjoy.

 

From carving, wood-turning, furniture building, modelling, rocking horse making,  to just talking about wood related matters.
Explore the Club facilities offered by KDWC. Membership costs are modest, so come along to meet us. 

You are under no obligation to join when you visit, so come and learn more about the fascinating and rewarding world of WOOD!

How membership applications are processed at KDWC

Following  is the procedure  for managing the Member Ties MEMBERSHIP system

Membership handling:

  1. All applications for new membership come to Secretary: secretary@knoxwoodies.org.au by email (as a bi-product of firstly going to the Treasurer)  so that they are known to the Committee from the outset

  2. Monies may arrive, but the signed Safety Awareness Agreement must be signed and filed
    before being active.

  3. Treasurer ENTERS NEW MEMBERS details  along with obtaining (from Member Ties),
    a RECEIPT for the specific YEAR BOOK
    and uses that receipt number as a cross reference when processing monies in the Accounting System.

  4. Treasurer and Secretary to liaise on the money and safety form being completed to their satisfaction.

  5. Secretary can then print off an updated  REPORT:  “Members Directory with ID (4x)”

  6. Secretary can print off a BADGE for the new member (using Member Ties) 
    -   report:  "Membership CARD for latest joining"   (extracts those joining in last 4-8 weeks)

  7. RARE:  When an existing member advises CHANGES by email to secretary@knoxwoodies.org.au 
    then things like changed email, phone, address or emergency contact info,  is edited into the system by Secretary

  8. In August each year, Treasurer can prepare final reports of full membership
    and set the next YEAR book for receipting

  9. From September,  any renewals for membership would be processed by Treasurer for the next year
    (anyone paying beforehand,  will be treated as an early payer for the following year)

  10. Just prior to the GRACE PERIOD ending (say late November) Treasurer to prepare a report of UNFINANCIAL members to chase up,   and to find out the reason for not renewing.

  11. After GRACE PERIOD, (say early December) Treasurer to prepare a list of ALUMNI for prior year,  being those that  allowed their membership to lapse.

  12. At ANY TIME, the newsletter team can obtain Birthday information straight from the system,
    as well as a list of the latest joining members last month,  for adding their email addresses to the Newsletter Circulation.

  13. New batch of membership cards (Badges) for Regular as well as Special Member Status
    to be produced at end of GRACE period for use for the rest of the financial year (plus next grace period). 
    (Because everyone is a potential renewed member till finally lapsing at the end of the next Grace Period.)
