In order to qualify as a Heritage Member of SAMVOZA, prospective members need to have had a parent or grandparent who served South Africa in a military capacity and who has since passed on. They will need to prove this relationship and connection, be 16 years or older and their application will be considered on the basis that they will be the sole representative of that person on SAMVOZA. Heritage Membership applications will be proposed at Club level and ratified by the Regional Executive. On acceptance, these Veterans will enjoy normal membership and they will be entitled to vote and hold office. Their continued membership will be assured by their dedication to the ideals of SAMVOZA and their good standing as a member of their Club.

Selective Skills Membership:
Selective Skills Membership may be conferred on individuals who do not qualify for Ordinary or Heritage membership, but have special skills deemed to be important enough for SAMVOZA to acquire in order to improve the image and performance of the Organisation. In this instance, membership will need to be promoted at Regional Executive level and ratified at National Executive level. On acceptance, these Veterans will enjoy normal membership and they will be entitled to vote and hold office.

They will need to prove this association and to produce their Force Number, as issued by their respective Defence Force, and show evidence that they completed at least the Basic Training element of their country’s Military Service. Associate Membership applications will need to be ratified by the Regional Executive and, on acceptance, these Veterans will enjoy normal membership, except that they will not be entitled to vote and hold office.

Their continued membership will be assured by their dedication to the ideals of SAMVOZA and their good standing as a member of their club.
