How to pass a member function to a template class?

class widget
{
public:
 bool SomeFunc(void);
};

template<class T>
class MyTemplateClass
{
public:
 MyTemplateClass(????? MemberFunction);
 ??????? m_MemberFunction;
};

If I want to pass widget::SomeFunct to the MyTemplateClass, what syntax do I have to use.
Please provide working example.
