Becoming a Member

Applying to become a new member

Membership of the Broken Hill Historical Society is open to everyone.

The Society currently has members who live locally, and quite a few who have had their origins in, or previously lived in Broken Hill and have now gone elsewhere in Australia.

To become a member of the Society you will need to apply for membership by writing to the Society Secretary, and asking for a form. Write to the Secretary, Broken Hill Historical Society, PO Box 212, Broken Hill, 2880.

Note that the membership fees for 2023 are: Members: $25.00. Pensioners $20.00. Additional family members $10.00.

Or  download this PDF of the form, Application for new Membership and print out, fill in, and either make a digital copy and email to current Secretary Helen Daly email:   Or send a filled-in printed copy to Secretary Helen Daly at the above postal address.

The form currently asks that you have it signed by two current members.

If you live locally, and you don’t know any current members, you can complete the form, bring it to a General Meeting and two members will arrange your nominations. If you can’t attend, as meetings have been very impacted by the pandemic, download the PDF of the form, print out and send to the Secretary asking for two nominations.

If you live ‘away’, send the completed form to the Society and ask for the required nominations to be arranged for you.

Renewing a previous membership

Renewal forms are sent out to existing members at the end of a year or the beginning of a new one.

Members will receive a copy of the renewal form in the mail.  You need to fill it in and sign, complete it and send it back to the Society  at PO Box 212, Broken Hill. You can also email a photocopy to the current Secretary, Helen Daly email:
