We have a progressive structure for membership fees, based on individual annual income*. Note that this page is only used to apply for free individual membership for those with individual income under $30,000 a year.

If your income is above this you must use the individual membership page instead, unless you are unable to pay by credit or debit card and require an invoice for direct bank transfer. In this case, complete the form below and email for generation of an invoice, noting your annual income and any donation amount. Your membership application will not be complete until payment is received. We prefer members applying and donating online on the form below wherever possible to reduce administration and accounting.

Membership applications are subject to our terms and conditions and require a declaration of any conflicts of interest on the forms below. Our full conflicts of interest policy for members is online here.
