Associate Member fees

Associate Members renew their membership on the anniversary of their joining date, so pay the same fee no matter which month they join. the fees, including those of Younger Associate Members, are in the schedule below:

Annual Returns

Annual Returns are sent to AACM Clubs on 1 February each year and to UK/RoI Clubs on 1 April.

Please can you ensure that your Membership is as up to date as possible before the Returns are sent out, as this will make the process easier both for Clubs, as the Returns will not need updating and can be sent straight back with the payment, and for SIGBI HQ.

You can either send any Membership forms to SIGBI HQ by email or post (to arrive by end March for UK/RoI Clubs) and we will make the updates before sending the annual returns out, or you can make your Membership Changes online before 31 March.  The user guide below explains how you can do this.  Thank you for your cooperation.:

Below, you can download the documents which accompany the annual returns.  All documents are in WORD format unless otherwise stated:

Paying Annual Returns by Standing Order (UK Clubs & Clubs with UK Bank Accounts only)

UK Clubs and Clubs not in the UK that have a UK bank account can pay their SIGBI Membership Fees in instalments by Standing Order. We know that Clubs outside the UK will not be able to benefit from this because of the high bank charges that would be involved, but if any overseas Club has access to a UK bank account and would like to take advantage of this facility they are very welcome to do so.

Please note that instalments can only be paid by CLUBS for all their Members, not by individual Members who should pay via their Club. We hope that this will enable Clubs to pass on the offer for their Members to pay the Club fees in instalments.

If you wish to pay in this way, please contact
