MHDS Membership Information

Definition of a Member:

1.A member shall be any person who completes an "Application for Membership Form" of the MHDS and which application shall be deemed to have been accepted unless otherwise advised within thirty days (30) of the date of application.
2.A member shall be entitled to vote at an AGM or Special General Meeting provided that the member has complied with the following conditions :

c.The failure by the member to sign the attendance register will be to the prejudice of that member.


There is no prescribed membership fee; however, all members will be required to fill out an "Application for Membership" form for administrative purposes. Members are urged to rather make a voluntary donation in lieu of membership fees, and to get fully involved in the activities of the MHDS.


The Executive Committee shall jointly decide whether membership of a member(s) should be terminated, depending on the type and seriousness of the circumstance. Circumstances for termination of membership may include, amongst others, theft, fraud, bringing the MHDS into disrepute, creating conflict between members of the MHDS and / or the community at large.

The member whose membership has been terminated has the right to appeal against this decision, in writing to the Chairperson, within seven (7) days of the termination of membership.

The Chairperson will convene a Special General Meeting to resolve the issue on hand, and a decision will be taken with a two-thirds majority vote of members present.
