Must a CIO keep a register of members and what information must the register contain?

Yes. The General Regulations require all CIOs to keep a register of members. The register must contain the following information for each member

  • the name of the member
  • the service address of the member (this is the address where correspondence can be sent to the member and can be the principal office of the CIO)
  • the date on which the person became a member
  • if the CIO has more than one class of member, a statement of which class the member belongs to
  • if relevant, the date on which the person ceased to be a member

If a CIO has only got one member, the register of members must include a statement that the CIO only has one member. If the number of members increases to two or more members, the register of members must show the date on which the number of members increased.
