  • Privacy and confidentiality concerning records, documentation and any other communication containing a member’s personal information, unless consent is otherwise provided.
  • Be informed and actively involved in all club events and offerings.

Members must:

  • Treat other members, guests, staff of venues and other patrons (where a social club function is being held) fairly, equally and with respect and courtesy.
  • Behave responsibly and ensure they conduct themselves in a manner which will not injure the reputation of the Association, ASC Pty Ltd, its events, organisers, participants or sponsors.
