Once your application and its appendices have been received, The Secretary General and/or the Director will be in touch to agree a date for a meeting with you. These are the people who, once they have met each applicant, are responsible for reporting to the Voting Committee on membership applications.

Once they have heard the report made by the person you will meet, the Voting Committee, which meets on a regular basis (normally once a month), will rule on your membership application.

The Cercle Secretariat will notify you of the Voting Committee’s decision within 10 days of the meeting at which your membership application is considered.

During the weeks following your admission to the Cercle de Lorraine, you will be invited to one of the informal dinners that are held here at regular intervals to bring new members together with the Secretary General and the Chair of the Voting Committee.
