Excerpt from Journal of the Royal Colonial Institute, Session 1904-1905, Vol. 36: December, 1904; Part I
There are two classes of Fellows (who must be British subjects), Resident and non-resident, both elected by the Council on the nomination of two Fellows, one of whom at least must Sign on personal knowledge. The former pay an entrance fee of 3, and an annual subscription of 2; the latter an entrance fee of 1 and an annual subscription of 1 18. (which is increased to 2 when in the United Kingdom for three months). Resident Fellows can compound for the annual subscription by the payment of 20, or, after five years' annual subscription of 2, on payment of 15 and non-resident Fellows can compound for the non-resident annual subscription on payment of 10.
The privileges of Fellows whose subscriptions are not in arrear include the use of the Institute building, which comprises Reading, Writing, and Smoking Rooms, Library, Newspaper Room, 650. Books may be borrowed - subject to the Library Regulations - and the Correspondence of Fellows may be addressed to the care of the Institute. All Fellows, whether residing in England or the Colonies, have the Journal and the annual volume of Proceedings forwarded to them. Fellows are entitled to be present at the Evening Meetings, and to introduce one visitor; to be present at the Annual Conversazione, and to introduce a lady. The Institute is open on weekdays from 10 a.h. To 8 p.m., except during August and September, when it closes at 6 pm.
