Membership - Costs
There are a number of categories of membership with associated costs; see the table below. (Prices correct as at Feb 2020 AGM).
All categories of membership (except Provisionals) have full rights and status to vote at AGM / EGM meetings. A more comprehensive description of the membership rules can be found in the Membership Annex of the Constitution.
The upcoming membership year will run 1st Oct 2020, for 12 months (renewing after 12 months). However, as this is a change to previous years, members will only have to pay 75% of the fee, as they will have already paid their existing fee until 31st Dec 2020.
Special offer to encourage renewals - pay your fee at the October 2020 renewal and receive 9 months membership (to 1st Oct 2021) for the price of 6 months ! See the linked 'Current rates' document.
Failure to renew on time may mean that membership is terminated and the relevant authorities informed.
All members (inc. Life) must complete an Annual renewal form, issued by the membership secretary in about August each year. Failure to renew Life membership after 7 years will mean termination of membership and benefits.
Fees can be paid by Cheque & Cash; we are also looking at the possibility of using Direct Debits.
Rates are determined by the Committee, and are calculated as a percentage of the 'Base rate' for that period. For the period up to Oct 2020, the base rate is £165.
