CircusWA is a not for profit (NFP) organisation working to develop circus arts in WA and ensuring access for all. The state government recently required all Not for Profit Organisations to update their constitutions and adopt new model rules. One of the required changes was to formalise our membership base. To implement this we now require all of our students 18 years or older, parents of students under 17 years of age, as well as trainers and board members,  to formally sign up as an annual member.
All Membership fees will go towards maintaining our scholarship programs and ensuring young people have no barrier to joining us.
We have kept our membership fee very low with some additional perks. At only $10 for a whole year you will receive the following benefits:
  • Receive quarterly email newsletters
  • Receive performance/event special offers
  • Get 10% off birthdays
  • Be eligible for election to the board of directors
  • Vote at the Annual General Meeting
ALL students or parents must sign up to be a member to book into classes.
