Concessionary rates

The Association, at its discretion, makes concessionary rates of membership available from time to time.

Those rates currently available are summarised here along with the eligibility criteria for each rate.

Concessions

Assessment of eligibility for concessionary rates is based solely on the criteria published below and the Association’s decision in this matter is final. We reserve the right to request documentary evidence if necessary in order to make this assessment.

Eligibility for a concession in one membership year does not necessarily imply continuing eligibility for future membership years.
