There are two types of Members, normal membership is via the Corporate route. Alternatively an individual may join but only if their corporate structure prevents normal membership, and only with the permission of the Council.
Corporate Membership will be granted to any business or entity that is deemed, by the Council, to be a Qualified Corporate Member on application and once the Association has received the joining fee and appropriate annual subscription charge. The Council will not unreasonably withhold granting of membership.
Individual Membership is available to those individuals who in the opinion of the Council should be included within the Association but due to the nature of their circumstances are unable to have their corporate entity join.
