The conditions of membership
There are very few conditions of membership. You need to be 40 or over, and no longer in full-time employment. It doesn’t matter whether you are retired or semi-retired. Nor do you need to be of pensionable age. Your “Third Age” begins when you say it begins.
And the only qualification you need is that you want to enjoy and make something of this period of your life!
- Come to one of our general meetings (see below) or coffee mornings,
- collect and fill in an application form, and
- pay your first subscription.
To save time, you can skip step 2 if you print off our printable application form (a PDF), and fill it in before you come to the meeting. We will then take the completed form from you, with your first sub.
General meetings and coffee mornings.
The general meetings are held in January, June, and September and are one of the main ways in which you can find out what is going on, ask questions, and make your personal opinions known.
The general meetings for February, March, April, May, and October are replaced by coffee mornings.
The AGM will be held in November.
Meetings and coffee mornings are held on the third Thursday of every month and take place at the LAFMA Club, Edificio Santa Marta, Avenida Rosa de los Vientos 15, Calpe, at 10:30AM. Tables will be available for admin, travel and membership.
The subscription fee is €10 per person and will run from the day you join until 31 December of that year. Those who join for the first time between 1st January and 31st August will pay €10. Those who join for the first time between 1st September and 31st December will pay €5 for the remainder of the year.
From 1st January 2022, subscriptions will be renewed on 1st January each year. There will be a re-joining fee of €5 for any renewals not paid by the end of March.
All group leaders shall have membership renewal forms and are asked to ensure that all in their group have up to date membership.
