The Anfi UK Members’ Club is an independent self-funded association for timeshare owners at Anfi Del Mar and Anfi Tauro with an active committee and vibrant members’ forum. We welcome members from the UK, Europe and further afield.

The Club was initially conceived in 1997 by a few UK owners at Anfi Beach Club. A formal constitution and Committee was set up and the Club officially came into being on 30th January 1998.

The Club has since expanded to include all Anfi resort owners, whether from the UK or elsewhere, and now has owners from Club Puerto Anfi, Club Monte Anfi, Club Gran Anfi and Anfi Emerald Club among its members. The Club has become the key information centre and social club of Anfi del Mar and Anfi Tauro owners.

The Club has remained independent of the Anfi resort developers and management company, though we do have contact with both through the management or liaison committees of Anfi Beach Club, Club Puerto Anfi, Club Monte Anfi and Club Gran Anfi (details available to Members on the relevant pages of ‘Resort Info‘).

Tens of thousands of UK and non-UK families own timeshare weeks or points at Anfi resorts. Between them they have a massive base of knowledge to share with each other.
The ethos of the Club is mutual support and its members are people who wish to help, advise, co-operate with or meet with each other, either at Anfi or at home, and generally enhance their enjoyment of the Anfi resorts and the island Gran Canaria.

The Club complements the limited information given by the Anfi resorts themselves by sharing exclusive information gathered by Club members on holiday at the resorts 52 weeks of the year and regularly updated on the website. by the members.

It’s the collective knowledge of members that is so important to the Club.

1.3.2 HONORARY MEMBER: Former owners who remain interested in Anfi resorts may apply to the Committee on an annual basis for Honorary Membership. Honorary membership may be granted at an annual subscription rate to be determined by the Committee but confers no voting, General Meeting or Committee rights. Any ex-owner taking up this offer will be announced to the members via the website.

1.3.3 AFFILIATE MEMBER: When a Full Member sells or otherwise disposes of their Anfi timeshare, but a portion of their membership period has not expired, they may apply to the Committee for affiliate membership for the remainder of their paid up membership period. Affiliate members shall have no voting, General Meeting or Committee rights but may otherwise participate fully in the Club.

1.3.4 The Members’ Charter is attached to this Constitution (Appendix A) and forms part of the Constitution.

1.3.5 Membership may be withdrawn by the Committee from any member whom the Committee determines to have contravened the Members’ Charter (Appendix A). Any member may raise concerns about another member in writing to the Committee, at which time an investigation shall be instigated by the Chair. If a breach of the Members’ Charter is found then, except in the case of serious abuse, the Committee shall issue a warning to the offending member in writing. If the member continues to breach the Members’ Charter then the Committee may withdraw membership. In cases of serious abuse the Committee may withdraw membership immediately and without warning.

1.4 INDEPENDENCE

The Club shall be and remain independent of the Anfi del Mar and Anfi Tauro developers and resort managers. Nevertheless the Club shall co-operate with the managers of the Anfi resorts in furtherance of the Club’s stated aims (see “Purpose” paragraph 1.2 above)

1.5 ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATION

The Club shall communicate with the members by electronic means, e.g. by email and via the Club’s website, wherever possible.

However where a member is without email or internet access and notifies the Club of this, the Club shall make reasonable efforts to use other methods of communication, e.g. by telephone or post, so as to ensure all members receive all notifications relating to the Club’s activities.

  1. ADMINISTRATION

2.1 ADDRESS

The official address of the Club will be as published on the Club’s website from time to time.

2.2 COMMITTEE

2.2.1 The Club will be managed by a Committee which should include the following Honorary Officers:

  • Chair
  • Vice Chair
  • Treasurer

2.2.2 The minimum size of the Committee shall be three, comprising the Honorary Officers, and the maximum shall be the number of Honorary Officers plus one member for each role specified in Appendix B.

Members will be elected to the Committee at a General Meeting, the term of each person’s appointment being for three years or, if a General Meeting is not held at the end of their third year in office, for four years.

Committee responsibilities are attached to this Constitution (Appendix B) and form part of it.

Committee members’ roles within the Committee will be decided by the Committee from amongst the Committee members at the first Committee meeting after an election.

2.2.3 At each Ordinary General Meeting at least one third of the Committee members will stand down and an election held to fill the vacancies. The retiring members will be eligible for re-election.

2.2.6 At all Committee meetings including remotely convened meetings there shall be a quorum of at least two-thirds of voting Committee members. If there is no quorum, then the Committee meeting shall be postponed and reconvened at another date. At the discretion of the Committee a purely informal meeting may be held at the originally arranged time, but no decisions requiring expenditure shall be made.

2.4.7 Where the EGM has been called by members without the support of a voting Committee member, the Chair of the EGM must be chosen by a vote at the beginning of the meeting, and this must be minuted.

2.4.8 Where an EGM is called by a resolution of the Committee, the EGM shall normally be chaired by the Chair or, in their absence, the Vice Chair. Failing that the Committee members present may appoint another Committee member to chair the meeting.

2.5.6 The quorum for any General Meeting will be twelve paid up members in attendance including Committee members. If there is no quorum at the start time, the start will be delayed for one hour. If there is no quorum after one hour, the meeting can take place, but no formal business decided upon or votes taken. The meeting will be re-convened 28 days later (unless that takes it to a Bank Holiday weekend, when the meeting will be convened on the first weekend after 28 days which does not include a Bank Holiday). All reports must be made available online to all members with access and by post to those without within one week of the original meeting. At the postponed General Meeting, those actually attending will form the quorum. Postal and mail votes and proxies sent for both meetings will be counted, with later votes overriding earlier. The answers to questions about the reports will be published online and by post as above. The postponed meeting may be electronic.
