Members must pay an annual fee related to their category and size laid down in the membership fee regulation. Changes to this regulation can be proposed by the Board and require approval by the GA before coming into force. In exceptional circumstances, the Board can decide upon a member’s request to reduce that member’s membership fee.
Membership fees should be paid at the start of the financial year or in receipt of invoice with terms of payment. Failure to pay the membership fee inspite of repeated reminders will lead to revoking of the membership and will affect any future applications for membership.
To terminate your membership, application in writing should be received to the secretariat (email@example.com) with the following information: Name, Membership Type, Reasons for termination. The application should be received by September of the current year.
