Every year we pay our subscription fees to remain official members of the WI. Your subscrition fees go towards a number of things: our meeting room hire, refreshments, a payment towards the main WI and also NYEFWI.
The 2019 fees are: £42.00
New members joining the WI for the first time, i.e. who have not previously been a member of any WI in the past 10 years, will pay a pro-rata subscription depending on the quarter in which they join. The rate per quarter is shown in the following table:
Date of joining and total Subscription due:
1 Jan-31 Mar £42.00
1 Apr-30 Jun £31.50
1 Jul-30 Sep £21.00
1 Oct-31 Dec £10.50
WI members can belong to more than one WI, by paying the full membership fee to the first WI, and a further £20 to any additional WIs at any time of the year. There is no pro-rata rate for dual membership.
Your membership entitles you to eight copies a year of the WI membership magazine, WI Life, as well as regular newsletters and mailings to keep you up-to-date with all the news and events from your federation (a small charge may apply) and the NFWI.
We’ll be collecting these at the January meeting so please bring either cash or your cheque book to pay your subscription, then you can sit back and enjoy the rest of the WI year!
