Subscription Rates (effective from 1 Jan 2016 to 31 Dec 2016)
Members are encouraged to establish a Direct Debit (DD) for payments to ensure uninterrupted continuity of membership benefits in the future. When paying via DD you will receive a £5 discount. (Only available for UK sterling bank accounts).
Otherwise a sterling cheque drawn on a UK bank must accompany the application.
Ordinary members paying by DD may elect to pay in two equal installments (January & July).
Individuals joining October to December in 2015, and paying by DD, will not pay their dues until January 2016 but will receive journals and all other benefits immediately. Membership will then extend to December 2016.
Members are welcome to pay by Credit or Debit card however if you are based within the UK then this will incur an additional 5% surcharge.
