How are fees payable?

Affiliate members – when you join as an Affiliate Member online you will be asked to pay as part of the process.

Student membership – you can join online free of charge.

All other grades of membership – you will need to apply for any professional grade of membership and will be invoiced when your application has been approved

Please note: Direct Debit is CIWM's preferred payment method and you can receive a discount of up to 10% if you pay in this way. Click here to download a mandate form.

What if I join part way through the year?

When you first join CIWM, you will pay fees on a pro rata basis until the end of the December. So, if you join in April, you will pay a fee equivalent to the fees for the remaining 8 months of the year.

Fees then become due in January of the following year, and each year after that.

What methods can I use to pay my fees?:

Direct Debit – This is the easiest way to pay and we’ll send you a notice each year of when your fees will be taken. If you pay annually, you’ll receive a 10% discount, if you pay quarterly, you’ll receive a 5% discount. You can also pay monthly over 10 months, January to October.

Online account – log into your online account, and if your fees are due, you can pay by credit or debit card

BACS – this is payment directly to our bank account from your bank account – please ensure you quote your Membership ID number as your reference so that we know who the payment is for!
