Queensland Maritime Museum Membership

Persons interested in joining the QMM as a member or in renewing their membership are encouraged to familiarise themselves with the organisation’s Values Statement – 2021.

Queensland Maritime Museum’s constitution includes membership to the organisation which is broken down into the categories of General, Family, Corporate, and Life. All of these categories allow for only one vote by a nominated ‘Delegate’.  Members are people who wish to help guide our organisation and are, therefore, given voting rights and the opportunity to be appointed to the Board of Directors. 

From our Constitution

  1. Applications for Membership are welcome and should be completed using [this] proforma approved by the Board.  The Board may in its absolute discretion admit or refuse admission of any applicant for Membership.  (Clause 4.3)
  2. Each person applying for General Membership, Family Membership or Corporate Membership shall in conjunction with the application for Membership, pay to the Secretary the applicable annual subscription.  If the Membership applied for is not granted then all money so paid by the applicant shall be refunded to [the applicant] by the Company.  (Clause 4.5)
  3. Membership of the Company is not transferable, the rights, privileges or benefits of Membership of the Company being personal to the Member.  (Clause 4.7)
  4. If the full amount of the annual subscription fee for a Member is not received by the Secretary within 28 days after the due date for payment, the Membership of the Member shall without any further action lapse.  (Clause 4.14)
