Application for membership

New applicants for membership must complete the appropriate "Consent to be a Member" form. There are separate forms for individual and library membership that can be printed from this website and submitted as an application for membership.

Submission of the completed form signals the applicant's acceptance of the Association's constitution and, in the case of library membership, nominates a particular
person to represent the library.

Upon receipt of the appropriate consent form and membership fee, the Secretary will record the new member's details in the Association's "Register of Members".

Completed consent forms and a cheque in Australian $ (payable to "ANZTLA Ltd") for the membership fee should be sent to the ANZTLA Secretary (see Contacts page for details).
