Seacliff Probus Club established 27th February 2020

Our first meeting was held on 27th February 2020 to see if there was support to establish a Probus Club. It was evident that a Combined Club was needed and it was decided to called the Seacliff Probus Club.  People in the meeting offered to be Officer Bearers and were elected to the Inaugrial Management Committee.  All people who joined at the meeting are Foundation Members.

We are a club of women and men who share the Probus objectives of Fun, Friendship and Fellowship.  we are now in our second year with about 50 members and average age of 71. All Members must be retired, or at least semi-retired.

If you are considering Probus, then try us.  

We offer fun, friendship and fellowship through the following:

 * Monthly Organised Outings & Activities happen on 1st Thursday of each month (for the program, see our Monthly Organised Outings & Activities page)

* General Meetings on 4th Thursday of each month (for past meetings, see our General Meeting Minutes page)

* Interest Groups have been established and meet when those in the group wish (for information about these groups see our Interest Groups page & the individual group sub-pages)

* Our monthly Newsletter (our past Newsletters are in our Newsletter page)

* Probus Certificate, badge, booklet and other benefits (see PSPL website)

* Our Committee meets on the 3rd Thursday of each month (our Committee details are in Committee Members page).

We would like to invite you to be a part of the Seacliff Probus Club’s journey. If you are looking for new friends and experiences, then why not join us – the Probus Club of Seacliff. We meet to develop friendships with fellow retirees. We meet each month to mix with each other and hear stimulating speakers. We go on well organised and varied outings each month and several interest groups. We would like you to be a part of this journey. Come along as a guest and experience an enjoyable morning.

General Meeting Arrangements

We meet upstairs at the Seacliff Brighton Yacht Club. Our General Meetings are held on the fourth Thursday of the month.  Meetings start at 10am with most arriving 10-15 minutes before.

When people arrive at a General Meeting our Membership Officer (Lorraine) will be at a table near the entrance and she will take your details (name, phone & email - these are mandatory requirements for insurance and if we need to contact you) and make a name badge before asking someone to introduce you to Members as we mingle before the meeting starts.

All Members, Visitors and Guests wear name badges so its easy to learn and remember names.

The General Meeting is 2 hours long with about 40 minutes of Agenda items, then 20 minute morning tea, then a guest speaker for 1 hour. At the General Meeting we invite Members, Visitors and Guests to lunch at the Seacliff Surf Life Saving Club next door. If you decide to come to lunch you pay at the SSLSC as you order. Lunch can take up to 2 hours. 

What Happens if You Can't Decide About Us

If you need more than one meeting to decide to join us, you are welcome to come along with up to 3 visits at no cost as a Guest.  You can become a Member sooner as this does not affect the amount you will pay or when your next annual subscription will be due (March 30th each year).

After 3 visits Probus South Pacific Limited (PSPL) require you to decide whether to join, or not.  In 2021 the cost of being a Member is a once off Membership Administration Fee of $30 and a $60 Annual Fee (ie at joining $90). The General Meetings are free with Outings & Activities charged at cost. 

The 3 visits (should you need that many to decide) includes any Outings & Activities, but you will still need to pay the individual event cost as Members do and subject to the particular event demand.

The Newsletter, Meeting Schedule and Minutes have a lot more about us so take a look at those pages.

We are certain you will find some likeminded Members and enjoy being with us.

Thinking of Coming Along
