 You don’t have to be a member, but it helps. 
  
 The WaikatoLinuxUsersGroup page gives an overview of the group and its aims, and explains how to join the WlugMailingList. 
  
-Membership allows you access to the WlugLibrary, gives you a shell account on the WlugServer, and contributes to the running costs of all sorts of things that the [LUG] offer. Also, you must be a member of WlugIncorporated to stand for executive committee positions and to vote at General Meetings.

 Membership is currently set at $20 per year for an individual. Membership currently lasts from the time of payment until the next Annual General Meeting. Pro rata subscriptions are not offered. We don’t offer a family membership per se as meetings are free and everyone is encouraged to attend, but you are welcome to make a suggested donation of $35 per year for a family.
