Carinya Society has had a strong membership base since its inception and is privileged to have a number of Honorary Life Members.

The purpose of the membership base is to guide Carinya, by electing the Board of Directors. The Board must report to the Membership (base) annually, both in financial and organisational terms. This meeting usually takes place at an Annual General Meeting of members, held annually in September.

There are two classes of Members:

  • Voting members, consisting of the Directors, Honorary Life Members, Guardians, Parents and Carers and representatives from the Community.
  • Non-voting members, consisting of Donors, Volunteers and other patrons.

Why become a member

There are many reasons you may wish to become a member of Carinya Society. Certainly, it provides an effective way to help shape the future of Carinya Society.
