Membership to the ESLA is open and invitations extended to all licensed venues within the Waverley Municipality area. The licensee has the designated authority to make application for membership on behalf of their respective venue to the ESLA.

Membership is per calendar year. An annual membership subscription fee applies.

The following is the applicable subscription fee schedule:

$800 - Hotels / Large Bars

$400 - Bottle Shops, Small bars, Restaurants with PSA

$200 - Restaurants / Surf Clubs

$500 (NT) - Associate members / Sponsorship

Pay for Membership Online

Upon receipt of a completed application form and membership subscription fee a coaster size window decal will be available for collection or forwarded to the licensed venue. The display of the decal identifies the venue as a current member of the ESLA and affords all member benefits. You will also be issued with a login to the 'members only' section of our website. 

Three annual member meetings are held principally on the second Tuesday of March, July and November. Membership entitles the licensee and any other nominated person attached to the venue (for instance management team) access to these meetings. Similarly, the licensee and any other nominated person attached to the venue may be placed onto the ESLA email distribution list to receive timely and pertinent information from a variety of sources.

Membership renewal closes on the 31 st of December each year and does not re-open until the 1 st of February in the following year. On the 1 st of January each calendar year a full list of current members will be provided to the Licensing Police, Eastern Suburbs Local Area Command.
