Full members are entitled to one vote at general meetings and have access to the facilities leased from the Orford Town Trust at Orford Quay. Associate Membership is available for anyone who wishes to show their support for the association, it offers no voting rights, nor the use of the quay facilities but Associate Members may attend any annual general meetings.

The Executive has the power to refuse membership to any applicant, where it is considered such membership would be detrimental to the aims of the Association.
