6.2 Membership Committee: The Membership Committee shall be composed of the Commodore, who shall be the Chairman, the other Flag Officers, the Immediate Past Commodore and not less than eight other members (who shall have been members in good standing for at least five years immediately before nomination for election).
The Membership Committee shall have responsibility for the election and removal of members. Six members shall constitute a quorum.
6.2.1 “Every candidate for Full, Young Adult or Nonresident Membership must be proposed and seconded by two Members who have been Members for one year and must have been known to the proposer and seconder for a period of one year. The proposal shall be on a form approved by the Committee of Management and shall be forwarded to the Secretary. A candidate may only have one Flag Officer or member of the Membership Committee as a proposer, or seconder or writer of a letter of recommendation. If a member of the Membership Committee is a proposer or seconder or the writer of a letter of recommendation for an application coming before a meeting of the Committee then the Chairman may require the member to recuse themselves from the meeting during any discussions or voting concerning the candidate”.
6.2.2 Upon completion of the Provisional Period, if any, the name of a candidate for election, together with those of his proposer and seconder, must be posted in the Club for fourteen days, after which period the candidate shall be considered by the Membership Committee at a meeting called for the purpose, and, if at such meeting the majority of not less than two thirds of the Members present shall be in favour of the candidate, he shall be deemed to be duly elected. Should a candidate not be elected in manner aforesaid, the Secretary shall, in writing, notify the proposer and seconder of the candidate to that effect; and, if the proposer and seconder (or one of them, if the other shall then be out of these Islands), within two weeks after the sending of such notice, shall notify the Secretary that an election by ballot is requested, an election shall be held in such manner and at such time as the Flag Officers shall direct. At an election by ballot one adverse vote in seven shall reject a candidate.
