The annual subscription from 1 July 2018 will be $28.00 (Widow membership is $14.00) and is due on that date. For those Members paying by Automatic Deduction from the Police Bank or State Super the Annual Subscription will be $26.00 per Annum and Widows paying by that means will pay 50% of that amount i.e.$13.00. Your financial standing is endorsed on your RPA membership card. If you have not been issued with an RPA membership card, you are probably not financial. If in doubt, please contact the Secretary on 1300 581 713 or Email rpansw@bigpond.com

If you pay your dues annually (as opposed to having deductions automatically from your State Super superannuation or from your Police Bank Account) you have another option. You may electronically transfer your subscription directly to our account. Our account is held at the Police Bank, BSB No. 815 000, Account No. 70483. If you are transferring from your own Police Bank account, please add (the letter and number) S1 to our account number. Your surname and initial should be added as the reference.

The Secretary would sincerely appreciate members adopting either automatic deduction from Police Bank for the payment of subscriptions as it would significantly reduce the workload. Chasing up members for their subscriptions is a tiresome and costly task.

Mid-Year Luncheon

The annual mid-year luncheon will follow the AGM, where you can enjoy the company of old colleagues and friends and perhaps enjoy a beverage or two whilst consuming a delightful meal.

The luncheon will be held in the Restaurant on the 2nd Floor of the Club. It has been decided that attendees will order and pay for a meal of their choice from the comprehensive menu available. The Association intends to provide some beverages to accompany the meal.

State Secretary
