It’s time to renew your membership for 2018-2019
Wellington Batucada relies on membership fees to cover many of our ongoing costs such as instrument purchases and rehearsal hall hire costs – your annual membership fee is what keeps us going (well, that and the bowls of chips at the Southern Cross every Sunday!).
Following the 2018 AGM, band members voted to update the membership fee structure, as follows:
Standard membership: $45
Unwaged/student membership: $35
Voluntary additional donation: however much you like, if you wish
Wellington Batucada is a charity, and your donation (not your membership fee) is tax-deductible. Please make sure you tick the “Yes” box in the form if you would like a receipt for your donation, which you will need for your tax return.
Please complete the form and and pay your fees as soon as you can.
Membership benefits include:
- The use of the Wellington Batucada practice venue
- The use of Wellington Batucada owned instruments
- Receiving the weekly Wellington Batucada BATMAIL
- Getting your hands on the Batucada patterns PDF so you can practice at home
- Ongoing access to the members-only section of the website
And, you need to be a member of Wellington Batucada to:
- Attend Batucada band practice
- Perform at gigs once you’ve been signed-off
- Attend the AGM
- Vote on Wellington Batucada matters and for the committee
Please note that there are two check boxes on the form to indicate whether or not you want to be part of the performance group for the coming year. If you’re a beginner, you’re definitely not ready to tick these yet – but sometime next year, you most definitely could be!
Band members tick the performance checkboxes once they are completely confident in their ability to perform, as indicated – and have been signed-off by either Tim or Darryn.
Your membership fees cover the year 1st September 2018 – 31st August 2019.
Beginners get a month extra for their first year’s membership, as you were invited to join in August.

PS Quick note from AliG: I shall be investigating setting up a proper integrated payment system for our membership fees and donations. It will take a bit of time, so apologies for the delay – and watch this space 🙂
