Want to join or need to renew your existing membership?

In order to streamline the processing of memberships, we have done away with paper application forms. It will ensure your membership price is commensurate with the number of months your membership runs for.

Membership runs 1st July to 30 June of each financial year. The online application prices changes quarterly.  In other words, whatever time of the year you renew or join, the prices reflects the remaining part of the membership year.  Note: if you join in April, May or June of a financial year, your membership includes the remaining months plus the 12 months of the next financial year (ie:  rolls over to the end of June the following year).  The price reflects this.  Please see below table:
