Proposal for Change to Individual Membership Subscription Renewal Dates

At the meeting of the Council of The Textile Institute on Thursday 31 January 2019, it was agreed to put forward ideas for improving the efficiency of the way in which Individual Members’ subscription payments are made.

Currently, the Individual Membership anniversary date for subscription payment is set by the month in which the member originally joined. A more streamlined and efficient way of collecting fees would be to move to bi-annual collection dates.

Payments made by annual Direct Debit for UK members, and those paying in advance of their due date, will still secure a 5% discount.

Members are asked to vote on the proposal that:

From 2020, The Textile Institute moves to having two anniversary dates for subscription renewals from Individual Members: January 1st and July 1st.

Council Members believe that this change to the Individual Membership subscription model represents a fair and necessary change and trust it will meet with members’ approval.
