Club Policies

To ensure a safe and harmonious environment for all, and in order to ensure all members understand their conduct obligations, the following Club policies apply to all members (click on each policy to read):

Monthly Dinner Meetings

Geelong Business Club Monthly Dinner Meetings are for Club Members (and their Guests who are welcome to attend up to TWO Dinner meetings per financial year, at a cost of $85 per head).

Each dinner meeting includes pre dinner drinks and networking, a gourmet two course dinner with matching wines, and a presentation by a guest speaker who is an expert/leader in their field, be it in business, government, sport or community.

Invitations to dinner meetings are extended to members via email, and via posts on the Club’s Facebook and LinkedIn  accounts – with a link to register and pay online.  Dinner fees are payable in advance through the online booking system, or on arrival at the event, by card, cash, or cheque payable to Geelong Business Club Inc.  To avoid lengthy queues, it is strongly advised to pay online at the time of registering attendance.


If you would like to attend as a Visitor, but do not believe you are connected to a Club Member who can introduce you please email the Executive Officer:

Please note, our Dinner Meetings are very popular, so we do limit the number of guest tickets, with priority given to guests registered by members.  We will do our best to accommodate you, but appreciate your understanding that your request may be subject to a waiting list.


If you register and you or your guest(s) are unable to attend the Dinner, you must let the Executive Officer know ASAP, to avoid incurring full catering costs.

If you have not prepaid and withdraw after the RSVP date, the Club reserves the right to invoice you the actual prepaid catering costs, currently set at $85 per head.

‘No shows’ or ‘late withdrawals’ within  24 hours of the event*, will incur the full cost of $85.00 per head (both members and guests).

What does that mean for you?

  • If you prepaid online and failed to attend without adequate notice, the original $75 (members)/$85 (guests) paid cannot be refunded.
  • If you registered to ‘pay at the door’ and failed to attend without adequate notice, you will be invoiced $85.

Covid Circumstances only

* We realise that Covid-19 and its associated close contact and isolation requirement has wreaked havoc on our day to day activity as we know it, and for this reason the Committee recently carried a circular motion, as follows –

COVID-19 Consideration- Should members test positive, or a household contact test positive, The Geelong Business Club will carry forward payment (or will not fine members if not paid) provided notice is given by 2pm on the day of the dinner.  Any apologies after 2pm will neither be refunded nor avoid a fine as above (if unpaid).

Thank you for your support of Geelong Business Club.
