How long is the Sydney Heritage Fleet
Membership Year?
The memberships at Sydney Heritage Fleet run from May 1st – April 30th.
Can I volunteer if I am not a Member? No. For insurance and safety reasons you must be a financial member in order to volunteer for Fleet
activities.
What are the benefits of being a Sydney Heritage Fleet member? There are many benefits to a Fleet membership including: Fleet Ticket Discounts, Member only Events, Members can volunteer, support maritime history, enjoy free admission to James Craig
alongside and the weekly Fleet Forum email.
What member discounts do I receive? You enjoy a 10% discount on most ticketed events. There are also several events throughout the membership year that are free or heavily discounted for members.
Do I need to know my new Membership
Number?
Yes. Your membership number is to be quoted when you book member priced tickets as this ensures that member benefits are kept for members. We suggest that you save your membership number in your phone, or another easily accessible place, when you receive it.

 Will I receive a Membership Card? In order to reduce both costs and our carbon footprint, we will not send a laminated membership card as standard. You will however be sent your membership number via email. If you would like to request a laminated membership card please do so on your renewal form or if you are renewing  online, call or email the membership department. You do not need a membership card. We do, however, accept that some members like to have one.
Why should I renew online?  By managing membership renewals online the Fleet was able to redirect around $2000 back into volunteer projects. By saving printing, postage and hours of work, membership renewals were completed in record time last year and at a reduced cost.
 Do I need to register an email address? Due to timing and/or resource constraints, some member communications can only be sent via email. These include invitations to some member only events and the weekly Fleet Forum email with up-to-date information and photos on the progress of vessel and volunteer projects. Don’t miss out….. Register your email address with us!
