Joining the Order

 

Thank you for considering membership in the Order of St. George.

Membership in the Order recognizes and celebrates achievements in the community, whether large or small. Membership is an honour that will only be awarded to people who deserve it; they should be people who have changed things for the better.

Accordingly, we welcome applications from worthy men and women worldwide.

WHICH GRAND PRIORY?

The United Kingdom Grand Priory  has responsibility for membership in the UK, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Oceania.

The Americas Grand Priory has responsibility for membership in north and south America and the Caribbean. Please consider applying directly to the Americas Grand Priory if you live in these regions.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

Unless invited otherwise, all new members join as ‘Officers of St. George’. The annual oblation (membership fee) for this is currently £50. There is also a one-off administration fee of £100. So, membership of the Order will only cost £150 for the first year.

Please note that you will not be asked for any payment until your membership application is accepted.

GAZETTING

Names of candidates are gazetted (published) on this page. This is in order for existing members to make any comments, which will be received in confidence, on the suitability of any candidate.

DO I NEED A PROPOSER?

No. A proposer (generally an existing member of the Order) is desirable but not essential.

CAN I NOMINATE SOMEONE ELSE FOR MEMBERSHIP?

Yes. Please see the Growing the Order page here.

THE APPLICATION PROCESS

The Order uses WebCollect to process applications and maintain subscriptions. This enables us to store and record information securely and in compliance with data protection legislation.

To apply to join the Order, you will first need to set up an account with WebCollect. (If you are a member of another charity that uses WebCollect, such as the Royal Society of St. George, you can use your existing WebCollect log-in.)

You will then be asked to set up your subscription options and complete a short membership form. (You will not be asked for payment until your membership application is accepted.)

Please also send us a CV/resume to petition@orderofstgeorge.co.uk

NEED HELP WITH THE APPLICATION?

There is a short step-by-step guide here which we recommend you download and keep to hand while applying.

Please contact us at membership@orderofstgeorge.co.uk if you have any other queries.
