    Membership in Probus Perth is open to retired men and women who reside in this area. The club has removed the cap on membership, formerly sitting at 150 members, so the  Management Committee now welcomes all interested applicants. Normally new members are sponsored by an existing club member.

    When an individual joins the Club, there is an initiation fee of $10.00 and an annual membership fee. The annual membership fee is set by the Management Committee at the beginning of each fiscal year, with any changes to the fee being voted on by the membership at the Annual General Meeting. Currently the annual membership fee is set at $25. Depending on when a member joins, the membership fee shall be prorated as follows: September 1 to January 31 - full fee: February 1 to March 31 - half fee. After April 1 - full fiscal year's fees shall be due for the following year's fees from September 1 to August 31.

    If you are new to the community and/ or recently retired, Probus Perth may well be of interest to you. Please feel free to contact the club about membership or about coming out to one of their meetings to see if Probus is for you.

    Probus clubs are organizations for men and women who have retired from their profession or business and who want to maintain a social network with others who have similar interests. Probus clubs usually meet once a month for fellowship and to hear guest speakers. They are not service organizations and are non-sectarian and non-political, although members are often active volunteers in many community organizations. Today, there are over 300,000 members in approximately 4,000 Probus clubs worldwide. In Canada alone, there are 170 clubs from St. John's Newfoundland to Victoria British Columbia, with a membership of over 22,000.

    Probus Perth is a particularly active club with more than 170 members. It meets at 10am on the first Wednesday of each month, September through June, at the Perth Legion, 26 Beckwith Street East. The highlights of the meeting are usually provided by the guest speakers who present on an eclectic range of very interesting subjects. But in addition, it turns out that many members of Probus Perth have done the most amazing things during their lives and they share their experiences with the others in an optional short “self-introduction” during each meeting. There are also a number of special activities spread throughout the year for the enjoyment of club members and their guests. These special activities typically include local dinner and theatre events, fall trips by bus to attend interesting events, tours of local establishments, annual visits to the 1000 Island Playhouse, etc. So, interesting events, fascinating talks and fellowship, without participatory commitments, are what Probus Perth is all about.
