How do I join?

Complete a Membership Application form (you can print out the Membership Application form from the Branch website) and take the form to the sub-Branch you wish to join together with a copy of your Record of Service or Discharge Certificate. The annual membership fee is $35.00.

  • If you do not wish to be a member of a sub-Branch, you may join the Unattached List at ANZAC House. This means that you would be a member of The League but take no active participation in sub-Branch matters.
