The Club will consider applications from Full Members on a first come, first served basis.

The MCC Committee reserves the right to cap the offer should it be necessary, to avoid the significant erosion of future annual subscription income.

Associate Members and Candidates

There are up to 350 new Full Membership places, on a Life Membership basis, available to Associate Members and Candidates nominated before 1 May 2020.

The cost of Life Membership is £35,000 for Associate Members is £45,000 for Candidates.

Applications will be assessed once the offer has closed on Wednesday 22 July 2020, with priority given to the election of those who have been on the waiting list for Full Membership for the longest time.

Members’ Family and Friends.

In the event that after the take-up by Associate Members and Candidates, there are any places remaining, Full and Senior Members were able to propose new Candidates, in line with the normal nomination process.

Should the 350 Life Memberships be filled at any stage, resulting in the newly-nominated Candidate’s application for Life Membership being unsuccessful, their name can remain in the Candidates’ Book for election in turn from the waiting list in the normal course, and they will be required to pay the usual Candidate’s Registration fee of £291.

In considering Life Membership applications from Candidates nominated between 1 May and 30 September 2020, priority will be given to those who meet the definition of “Family”, then from Members’ friends – in each case in order of receipt.

Out-Match Members

Out-Match Members were able to apply for Life Membership by graduating to Full Membership.

As a Full Member, the Life Membership offer was available to Out-Match Members as shown in the scale as set out under the Full Member offer. This cost includes the £517 Entrance Fee required when graduating to Full Membership.
