Southern Cross Alpine Lodge, an incorporated Non-Profit Company which does not have share capital, introduced a membership scheme in the 1980s. Approved applicants may become company members and then pay an initial company membership fee (currently $740) and subsequently an annual company membership fee ($125 for 2024 if paid by 29 February). Members are not entitled to any return if the company were ever wound up – any proceeds would be reinvested in a similar venture.
Company members are encouraged to be actively involved in the ministry of Southern Cross and are eligible to stand for the Board of Directors – 4 directors are elected by members and 3 are appointed by Sydney Anglican Youthworks.
Southern Cross company members are eligible to join the Southern Cross Preferential Booking System (PBS) by paying one-off lump sum fee(s) to purchase PBS participation(s) in terms of the PBS Rules.
Southern Cross PBS participants receive Preferential Booking Priority and PBS member accommodation rates subject to the PBS Rules and Directors' Policy.
