  1. The joining fee is $100 maximum for the whole family**.   For example,
    if a father joins ($100), and later his 19-year-old son joins, there is no additional joining fee for the son.
  2. A Junior is under 18.  He is classed as a junior for the whole year (1 July to 30 June) in which he turns 18, even if that was as early as 1st July.
  3. An ex-HMAC Member who is re-applying for membership does not have to pay another joining fee.


** Family members must reside in the same household to qualify for the $100 maximum joining fee
