Subscription Fees

The following table sets out the main IMCA subscription fees for 2019.

There are two elements to IMCA subscriptions: the ‘basic’ fee plus a divisional fee (each member must join one or more divisions relevant to its own activities; Corresponding membership covers all divisions).

Please note that all new membership applications are subject to a £1,100 joining fee.

New applicants joining more than one region and applicants who are affiliates of an existing Member will not be charged the ‘basic’ fee for the additional region(s) and will only pay the divisional fees.

Annual subscriptions should be paid promptly in accordance with our Bye-laws.

Any member exceeding the credit limit detailed in our Bye-laws will be listed in the Lapsed Member category on our website. Access to our documents will then cease and membership withdrawn. Re-admission will then not be possible for two years, whereupon the admission process would start afresh.
