Member’s 2022 Christmas Party

Our final event for 2022 will be our Annual Member’s Christmas Party.  The cost of holding our Christmas party will be heavily subsidised by the club as a big ‘Thank You’ to all our members for their loyalty and support throughout what has been another difficult and challenging year for our Club.  This will be a fun event and an opportunity to see out the year out by celebrating with fellow members – don’t miss this awesome party as numbers are limited. 

All members whose membership is ‘Current’ will be eligible to attend the Christmas Party.  Members can  check their Membership Status by Clicking the Blue Link In The Box Below.

Membership Update.

In keeping with past practices, membership durations have been extended by one month for every show that we have had to cancel because of COVID, and more recently, major flooding events.  Our Club has 318 members comprised of 88 Single Memberships and 230 Couple Memberships.  Despite the challenges our Club has been confronted with over the past 2 years, our membership remains at all time high levels. 

Membership Status

As our Club membership cards have been designed to remain in an operational condition over many years, all reference to the period of membership currency has been removed from membership cards.  Similarly, our membership periods are not constrained by calendar or financial years, but are dynamic and operate for a period of 1 year from the date membership fees are received.  Whilst this approach has enabled cost efficiencies to be achieved, it has a downside in that members have no visibility of when their memberships are due for renewal.  In order to resolve this issue, the following Gold Coast Jazz & Blues Club Membership Status list will be updated monthly and published on this page on our website.  This will provide members with the ability at any time to check their membership currency and expiry date status.  Just Click on the Blue link below and when the list displays, scroll down until you find your membership number(s) and your membership currency and expiry date.
