ADVANCE NOTICE – ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP RENEWALS

The Board of Directors of the AIR has approved fee increases for the various fee-paying AIR membership categories, for the forthcoming membership renewal year: July 2016 to June 2017. For example, the full ordinary membership fee will increase from $495.00 (inc. GST) to $530.00 (inc GST). This increase reflects the impact of rising operating costs across a number of areas during the previous membership years.

The full ordinary early bird member renewal fee will be $515.00 (inc. GST) for those who opt to renew early.  Emails and further information regarding this process will follow in late March/early April.

We have previously indicated possible future changes in relation to the payroll deduction payment method. Whilst these changes remain in the planning phase, please note that for the forthcoming membership renewal year (July 2016 - June 2017) there will be NO CHANGES to the current arrangements.

It should further be noted that whichever method of payment is employed (direct/upfront payment or payroll deduction/incremental payment), professional membership fees paid to the Australian Institute of Radiography are tax deductible.

All members recorded as direct/upfront fee payers with a valid email address recorded with the Institute will receive an email renewal notice (with easy, quick-pay code) in early April 2016.

Existing payroll deduction/incremental fee payers wishing to take advantage of this discount/offer are encouraged to contact the Institute’s membership department (membership@air.asn.au) and their payroll office in order that their outstanding payroll payments can be finalised for the current membership year and their status switched to an upfront payer. 

We encourage all members to renew this year via upfront payment and utilising the Institute’s secure and simple online payment facility (available from early April 2016, via the AIR homepage membership renewal banner).
