How can I become a member?

  2. Check your email inbox for an email acknowledging your application and further instructions.
  3. Pay your membership fee shown on the emailed invoice online, by EFT, cheque or cash.
  4. As soon as receipt of your payment is confirmed and eligibility confirmed, your membership will be activated.

What do I have to do to renew my membership?

Annually, a few weeks before renewal is due, we will send you an email and an invoice for your membership fee. You can then check your details and pay your dues online by EFT, cheque or by cash.

Upon receipt of your payment your membership will be renewed.

I did not receive a renewal notice and invoice. What should I do?

We may not have your correct details in our system. Please contact the Secretary to get your details updated.

What are the rules if I am part of a household?

Any member over the age of 18 within your household can become a member of SIRA. Each household member who wants to be a SIRA member should apply for membership and pay the membership fee annually.

You can only order Emergency Non-potable Water from SIRA if you are a SIRA member and have signed the Agreement for Sale of Non-potable Water.

Individuals who are not SIRA members, even if another household member has joined SIRA, have no voting rights, or be able to buy water on behalf of their household.

Can I buy Emergency Non-potable Water?

SIRA will sell you Emergency Non-potable Water only if you are a paid-up SIRA member.
