Fees and Subscriptions
Current annual membership subscriptions are as follows:
US $ 3,300 for Company Members including access to Member's private website
US $ 100 for Associate Members including access to Member's private website
Subsidies for Meetings
The Council Treasury budgets a fixed amount to support Member Companies hosting meetings
Presently this is:
|for Annual General Meetings||US $ 45,000|
|for Section Meetings||US $ 10,000|
|for Regional Meetings and Members Dinner||US $ 5,000|
|for Working Luncheons||US $ 2,500|
At the 2013 Annual General meeting it was agreed to vary the support for the New York Regional meeting to include the luncheon within a total of US$10,000
The Member Companies hosting the meetings will need to fund the balance of the costs, with the exception of the Working Luncheons when the members and their guests will be charged directly.
It will be the decisions of the host members just how generous they wish to be and how lavish they wish to make the social programmes.
Members attending meetings are expected to pay their own air fares and other traveling expenses, hotel accommodation including any cancellation fees, and other individual expenses.
Associate Members will, in addition, be charged US $ 300 for attending AGMs and Section Meetings to assist in defraying costs.
