Membership of EERN is at the discretion of the Management Committee, but basically it is open to any recognised welfare providing agency. Normally this would be a not for profit welfare providing body or church organisation.
From a practical viewpoint, there is a limit to the number of members that can be effectively handled whilst still providing a reasonable service to members and their clients. Accordingly, since 2001 new members have been restricted to those organisations which are domiciled in and servicing one of the areas from which the donated goods predominately come, namely City of Whitehorse and abutting municipalities (Knox, Manningham, Maroondah, Monash & Boroondara).
Annual membership subscription rate is $120.00 inclusive of GST. This amount may increase depending on the number of times an agency uses the resource in any given financial year.
For further information in regard to membership application procedure refer to the Secretary. You can find this information on the Contact page.
