The membership of the Association is mainly individual people. Membership is also open to legally incorporated bodies, such as companies, registered charitable trusts, incorporated societies, and the like. (The Incorporated Societies Act does not allow unincorporated organisations, such as informal groups to be members of incorporated societies.)
The basic subscription is $137, but this is discounted to $96 in those cases where it is not a business expense. That is, if you put the invoice through a business accounting system, and deduct the subscription from the gross income when calculating the net income before tax, the subscription is $137. If you do not deduct the subscription as a business expense, it is discounted to $96.
This is optional. If the Association’s staff can see anything in this section that they can respond to directly, they will do so when they process your application.
If you’d rather pay on-line via credit card or bank to bank, please go to the shop once you have submitted your membership application. Alternatively we’ll send you an invoice with details on how to pay direct to our bank account.
We need your permission to pass your name on. Without that, we cannot put it on lists given to local groups for local field days and events, or give it to people asking if there are others of like mind in their area. Please make sure you indicate whether you give this permission. You can put a message in one of the slots below if you wish.
Please ensure that you supply your name, address and phone number so we can contact you with any queries. Membership is open to individuals and incorporated organisations. NZ Post says that for delivering the mail “… street, suburb and town or city names may be different from those you normally use.” It will help us if you can put in the postal address as used by the postal service, including the postcode.
Individuals wanting a business name to go on invoices etc. – please make it part of your address.
