The 2016 annual fees for Society membership, registration with the Engineering Council and Society Publications are provided here.
Subscription fees are pro-rated throughout the year and as we are currently in the 3rd quarter of the year, the annual fee is currently set to 50% of the standard rate. Subscription dues for individuals joining the Society for the first time and members upgrading their existing memberships will reflect the quarterly rate for the period in which their application was considered by the Society's Membership Grading Committee (e.g. the 3rd quarter rate would apply for applications considered by the Committee in September).
Please note a non-refundable Administration Fee is charged for all new member applications and membership upgrade applications and collected on receipt of application. This fee is waived if applicants are employed by a company participating in our Corporate Partner Scheme.
Each year Council agrees the annual increase to Membership Subscriptions and Administration Fees, which for 2016 will reflect the Consumer Price Index rate from 2015 of 0.5% (please note that the membership subscriptions are rounded up to the nearest £).
Members who have or will be reaching the Normal Retirement Age (NRA) are entitled to pay subscriptions at the Baseline Rate from that year.
Alternatively, all retired Members, Fellows and Companions can apply for a Retired Members Concession Rate of 20% which will be deducted annually from their full Headline Rate subscription (note — if the 20% discount takes the subscription below the Baseline Rate then the Baseline Rate will apply).
Regardless of which rate members apply for, they will still continue to receive full benefits of membership applicable to their grade. Members who wish to make a change to their subscription rate will be able to do so on receipt of their membership subscription notice.
Paying by Direct Debit
Members have the option to pay their subscriptions by Direct Debit either in one sum at the start of the subscription year in January or in ten equal monthly instalments from January to October. Members may either apply for this facility on receipt of their annual membership renewal notice or can download the form here (please complete and return the form to the Subscriptions Team, as per the address provided).
Members who are UK tax payers and who pay their own subscriptions are encouraged to complete and return the Gift Aid proforma that they will receive with their membership renewal notice each year. More information, and a copy of the form, is available here.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org quoting your membership number if you are a member.
