The Island Newcomers Club is open to all new residents of St. Simons Island and Sea Island within 2 years after becoming full or part-time residents. We welcome men and women of all ages, couples and singles. Membership is available for 3 years from joining for new residents who join. The club year extends from July 1 – May 31 with most activities beginning in early September.

The general enrollment period of July 1st to December 31st is open to new residents and/or returning members. Members joining or renewing during this period are credited with a full year membership at the current membership rate. This will be recorded as the member’s 1st, 2nd, or 3rd year in the Island Newcomers Club. See MEMBER RENEWAL / SIGNUP for current rates.

New residents may join during the January 1st to February 28/29 period and will receive a partial year membership at the current membership rate. The partial year membership will not count as a year in INC. Members registering between January 1 and February 28/29 would begin their membership year 1 with the next general enrollment period beginning the next July 1.

Membership enrollment is closed from March 1 to the end of the Club year, May 31.

Visitors are welcome and may attend one meeting prior to joining. Visitors should contact MEMBERSHIP for event registration. Guest(s) of members are welcome to any Club function provided there is space available following the sign-up of all members who wish to participate. Members may not bring the same guest(s) to more than two events in a Club year.

Members who move their residence out of St. Simons Island or Sea Island may continue their membership throughout the end of the fiscal year for which they have paid. No refunds, however, will be issued on Membership dues.
