The MCC Committee determines the number of candidates it can offer Full, Restricted and Provisional membership in June/July of each year.Due to numerous variable factors that are taken into consideration when determining new member intakes each year, it is not possible to estimate exactly how long a candidate on the waiting list will have to wait before they are offered membership.
However, we do know the nomination date of the latest candidates proposed to be elected to membership in our intake for the 2016/17 season.
Proposed 2016/17 membership intakeAll Restricted members who were nominated on the waiting list from September 1, 1990 to November 30, 1990 inclusive will be offered Full membership.
Existing Provisional members nominated from December 1, 1996 to May 31, 1997 inclusive will be offered Restricted membership.
Waiting list candidates nominated from November 1, 1997 to January 31, 1999 inclusive will be offered Provisional membership.
The waiting list, therefore, will consist of candidates nominated from February 1, 1999 to today.
As is the case with this year's intake, the number of new Provisional members for 2016/17 is not expected to be higher than 10,000.
