Annual membership subscriptions

Did you know that you don’t have to pay your annual membership subscription all at once? There’s an alternative way to pay your annual subscription on a monthly basis, either by credit card or automatic payment.  It’s about giving you greater flexibility to choose what best suits you.  

If spreading the cost of membership across the entire year in instalment payments rather than all at once is something you’re interested in then please get in contact with Dale Savage, Membership & CPD Manager to discuss your options.
