- Get to know the members. and the committee. In order to apply for full membership, you will need to have 2 proposers, who can be anyone who has been a member of SWCC for at least 2 years. They can introduce you to other club members, and help you to get involved in club activities. It is advisable, though it should not be considered essential, that you get to be known by a few of the current committee members.
- Become a full member. After at least six months, and before the anniversary of your provisional membership, you can apply for full membership. Your name, and those of your 2 proposers, should be displayed on the notice board for at least 6 weeks prior to the committee meeting at which your application will be decided (see Calendar for dates). Send a completed full membership application form (available at SWCC HQ or [Open Office, PDF]), along with a letter of proposal from each of your proposers, and the requisite fee, to the Membership Sec in good time for the meeting.
Subscription and insurance rates have been held from last year.
*British Caving Association subs: This includes 3rd party liability insurance at a level appropriate to your caving activity and all members must choose which category they fit into. These subs are collected via SWCC but are separate from the SWCC membership subs. If you have already joined the BCA via another route there is no additional fee (e.g. Individual BCA member, via another BCA caving club or cave divers group), but your BCA Insurance Card Number must be provided. Please note that this insurance does not cover injury to yourself.
