Member support

Sometimes members need support during challenging times in their careers. If you're out of work for a while or decide to leave the sector, our support schemes help you continue your membership at reduced rates.

We offer three schemes, available to anyone who has been a member continuously for at least one year from the date of application.

Retired membership scheme

For those who have fully retired from active business life in the sector. This scheme aims to encourage long term continued involvement of our retired members by offering membership at a reduced annual fee of just £40. And, in recognition of long service, for those with 20 years or more continuous membership*, an annual fee of just £20. Under the scheme you retain all the benefits of membership. This fee is payable at your normal renewal date.

Continued membership scheme

If you've left the sector, you can continue your membership and maintain your relationship with us through the continued membership scheme. This scheme offers a reduced annual membership fee of just £40. And, in recognition of long service, for those with 20 years or more continuous membership*, an annual fee of just £20. Under the scheme you retain all the benefits of membership. This fee is payable at your normal renewal date.

Membership support scheme

For those who are temporarily out-of-work through redundancy or unemployment, taking a career-break or on maternity/shared parental leave, who are not working through ill-health, working part-time or other special circumstances that may cause hardship in paying the full member fee. Enables you to continue your relationship with us with a 50% reduction in your subscription fee. You retain all the benefits of membership. Fee is payable at your normal renewal date.

*Continuous membership also accrues within all three schemes.
