Membership

Why join Das Zentrum?

There are many benefits of being a member of Das Zentrum.  Members are entitled to borrow books, DVDs and other items from the library, join our language and conversation classes (additional tuition fees apply), you will receive emails and our informative newsletter with details of upcoming events, and a member discount when attending most of our events.  You can meet people from various backgrounds but all with an interest in the German speaking regions of Europe.

Membership costs $50 for one year or $30 for concessional membership (concession rate available for full-time students to age 26, age/disability/health care and pension card holders - please present concession card or provide copy if sending application by mail).  You can join at any time throughout the year and renewal is due on 31 March each year thereafter. (In the second membership year, a credit adjustment will be given for any remaining unused membership period.)

Das Zentrum is run entirely by a team of volunteers with the majority of funding coming from membership fees.  The remainder comes from fundraising activities and some sponsorship and grants.  Please support us by joining today and helping to ensure Das Zentrum can continue providing our services to the community.
