How do I pay for my membership fees?


New members

If you are a new member, please complete the relevant application form for the membership package you would like to take up, and you'll be prompted to pay as part of this process.

Renewing a membership

When renewing a membership, please ensure you quote your name and your membership reference (or the name and membership reference of the organisation you are making payment for) at the time of making payment.

We ask that you include this information so that we know who the payment is for and so we can renew your membership - if you don't quote these details, we may not be able to match the payment to your account, and so your membership may not be renewed.

Direct Debit: £GBP only

If you would like to pay for your membership fees annually and automatically by Direct Debit, please download and complete the Direct Debit mandate form, and return the form to:
