Membership Fees

Membership runs on the calendar year. That means that the annual fee provides membership for the current year until 31 December. Rates are as follows (correct as at May 2022):

  • Individual Membership: €75
  • Students/Unwaged members: €45

When you register as a member your membership is for one calendar year. There are no automated reminders to renew membership after this time. This means you need to register again for the next calendar year. In the registration form you will be asked for affiliation. If you have no affiliation to an organisation please just write ‘other’ in the box. As soon as you have made the payment a mail will be sent to your email. You can also access your membership payment at any time by clicking on the manage my membership button.
