Individual Membership Categories and Fees

The College offers four membership categories including active, student, associate and retired.

The membership calendar year is from January 1 to December 31. The renewal campaign begins in October for the following year’s membership.

Starting on October 1, 2017, we will introduce a graduated entry fee for all new active members. In addition, this new lower fee is also open to current active members who are in the first three years of College membership. Should you have any questions, please review our Graduated Entry Fee policy.
