How Do I Join?

If you would like to join your local sub-Branch, download and complete a membership application forma and take it with a copy of your Record of Service or Discharge Certificate to the sub-Branch.

If you do not wish to join a local sub-Branch, you may join the Unattached List at ANZAC House. This means that you would be a member of The League but take no active participation in sub-Branch matters.

Annual membership is $35.

For further information on becoming a member please contact the RSL Membership Department (02) 9264 8188.
