Process to Join CEASA

Associations wishing to join CEASA are required to forward a completed application form which is put before the next CEASA Management Committee (which meets twice a term) following receipt of the application.
The association must be an incorporated body - a copy of the constitution needs to be forwarded to CEASA with the application form.
The Management Committee will then make a recommendation to the CEASA Council (which meets once each term) and the CEASA Council votes on the acceptance of the application.
