Membership Costs

*FTE – Full Time Employees
HIC – High Income Countries | LMIC – Low and Middle Income Countries – as defined by World Bank  
FP - For profit | NFP Not for-profit

The invoicing period matches the calendar year. If members join later than the first quarter of the calendar year, the invoice will be based on the pro-rated amount for the quarter in which they sign the organisational membership agreement (i.e. submit the on-line application form). The annual fee will be invoiced, as per all organisational members, in January of the following calendar year.

Organisational members can specify in which currency the invoice should be issued from the list appearing below. Ideally organisations will pay according to the following matrix (to avoid excessive exchange rate and bank commission fees):

Membership Location Invoice Currency Bank Account for payment VAT
United Kingdom GBP Natwest GBP Yes
(unless expressly stated VAT exempt)
Europe EUR Natwest EUR No
US, Canada and rest of the world USD Natwest USD/Paypal USD No


Membership Fees in different currencies:

Membership fee invoices to be issued in GBP or EUR will be calculated according to the X-Rates Exchange Rate[1] on the day of receipt of membership application and rounded up to the closest decimal. Pro-rated invoices will be calculated based on the reference exchange rate of the 1st day of the corresponding Quarter.
