Registration Forms

Our Activity Officers do a great job and are always mindful of the welfare of members when attending outings and longer trips. It is necessary for all members and guests who participate in a trip organised by Probus to complete a Registration Form.  This ensures that in the event of an emergency your contact details are readily available if required.  At the moment many of our members have NOT completed this form.  It would be appreciated if all members going on the Broken Hill Trip who have not completed a form please collect one this morning from Jan or John Archer, complete it and hand it in before leaving at the conclusion of today’s meeting.


Policy regarding use of Photos and Other Media

Photos, videos and other media of club activities and which are held, donated or otherwise acquired by the Probus Combined District Probus Club (“the Club’) may be utilised for club purposes, including for display in club meetings, inclusion in the member’s Bulletin, being made available to members of the Club for their private use through the club’s archive facility, and for external publicity.

PSPL Insurance

PSPL will continue to offer the current policy which provides coverage for pre-existing conditions which is now known as Probus Travel Insurance Plan A and in response to feedback from Probus club members, PSPL has negotiated a second policy, known as Plan B.

This second policy offers higher levels of coverage in most areas and covers some pre-existing conditions, subject to the terms and conditions of each plan.

advantage of having an option of two policies is to provide a level of cover to meet the needs of those with pre-existing conditions and those who wish to have an alternate level of cover with higher coverage limits in some areas.

a further benefit, members can apply for Probus Travel Insurance up to 270 days (9 months) in advance of their travel date, even if they are travelling after the renewal date of 30 November 2015.

In addition, our Rotary friends will also be able to access either of these two plans in recognition of our long standing relationship and partnership with Rotary.

to either of these policies will be available to all financial members of accredited Probus clubs or Rotary clubs along with one guest.

Please note that this information is available on the Probus South Pacific website.
