Membership of voting members is currently fully subscribed, however occasionally full voting memberships become available. There is a waiting list to join the Club. Information about becoming a voting or non-voting member can be obtained from the Secretary. The voting members of the Club forms the 'core' of the club's viability and success. People who may be friends or family of voting members are termed 'associate members' and they are encouraged to stay at the lodge and be involved in its maintenance and operation. Associate members form the main group of candidates for becoming new voting members of the Club.
Occasionally social events and work parties are held. In particular, the Work Parties are an economical means for the Club to maintain the lodge at Perisher Valley and so keep costs under control. Members who attend these Work Parties do so voluntarily but contribute enormously to the cost of running the Club by the supply of their labour.
