The media lunch club strives to be a very friendly and informal organisation with very few rules and regulations:
The media lunch club is governed by Committee made up of the CEO and ten paid up Members.
The Committee is elected Bi-annually by the Membership on the number of votes cast for those Members wishing to stand as candidates for the Committee.
The Committee Meetings are Chaired by a Committee Member on a revolving basis elected at the commencement of each meeting.
Membership is open to all those engaged in the Creative, Commercial and Professional Communities in any area of The Media Industries, encompassing Film, Television, Music, Theatre, Publishing, New Technology (as applied to the Media)
The Membership Year is from 1st January to 31st December
The Annual Membership Fee (currently £25.00). Is due by December 31st for renewal of the following Membership Year.
The Annual Membership Fee is pro rated during the Membership Year for those becoming Members during a current Membership Year.
Funding Surplus: it is always the intention to use any surplus funds for the benefit of Members only. This takes the form of free or subsidised lunches / events and, in the past, tickets to a Gala Dinner, held bi annually.
At their absolute discretion, the committee reserves the right to reject a membership application or cancel any existing membership that it feels is in its view and after due consideration detrimental to the club or any member of it . Any such rejection or cancellation will be minuted at the committee meeting following such decision and the person in question shall be notified in writing by the chairman. In such circumstances, an existing member whose membership is cancelled shall be refunded an amount of their subscription proportionate to the remainder of the then current subscription year.
