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 2nd quarter of the year, the annual fee is currently set to 75% of the standard rate. Subscription dues for individuals joining the Society for the first time and existing members upgrading their membership grade will reflect the quarterly rate for the period in which their application was considered by the Society's Membership Grading Committee (e.g. the 2nd quarter rate would apply for applications considered by the Committee in May).
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, as of 2012, 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
From 2012 Members will be given the option to pay their subscriptions by Direct Debit either in one sum in January or in ten equal monthly instalments from January 2012. Members will be able to apply for this facility on receipt of their membership subscription notice or can download the form here.
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 email@example.com quoting your membership number if you are a member.
