We’re excited to announce that the process for becoming a New Melbourne Browncoats Member just got easier. New Memberships can now be purchased via our Online Store!

NMB Dog Tags on woodNMB Membership makes a great Christmas gift for the Firefly fans in your life. Members not only get some shiny swag and exclusive member benefits, but every membership helps our organisation!

There are a number of costs associated with running our organisation. These include annual lodgement fees, banking fees, web hosting, domain registration, public liability insurance and other administration costs. As much as possible, we try to keep our costs down, often relying on donations of goods or services. There are also costs associated with running events, and while we do our best to ensure that these are covered by ticket charges, merchandise sales, and so on, sometimes we need to cover these costs before the activity generates any income (such as hiring venues, paying for convention tables or purchasing stock to sell). Having an income from membership fees helps with these running costs, and any surplus is invested back into the club or donated to charity.

Member Benefits

  • Exclusive Member Dogtags: One of the coolest things about becoming a member is that all members will receive a set of exclusive New Melbourne Browncoats dogtags. One bears the logo of the New Melbourne Browncoats, and the other is stamped with the year of membership.
  • Monthly Prize Draw: Every month (from October 2014) we draw out the name of a random member to receive a prize! You will need to keep your contact information up to date, as prizes will be sent to out the address on our Members Register.
