8.9 As a Member of the Club, the Member agrees to conduct themselves in a professional and business-like manner, treating other members with respect at all times. If the Club should receive a complaint about any Member’s behaviour, it reserves the right to suspend membership. Such complaints would constitute a breach of these terms.
