A quote from the October/November 2019 issue of Active Retirees new PSPL Chairman Margaret Drake when asked "What makes Probus so special?"

Probus is a social club without a lot of the constraints of other associations, which means each Club can mould itself to the needs of its members. This means that no matter what Club you're a member of, you can have direct input into the activities in which those members can choose to participate. 

This also means that every Club has a great range of activities that everyone enjoys, no matter how active or inactive they choose to be. Probus is non-political, non-religious and does not fund raise, attributes that appeal to many retirees.
