Have your Circumstances Changed?

Thursday, 06 Aug 2015

Have you recently retired, become unemployed or your circumstances changed?  If so you may be entitled to concessional membership.

ACS has special membership rates for students, recent graduates, retired and unemployed members. If you are an existing member and fall into one of these categories, your membership grade doesn’t change.

Membership Concession Fees

A member who falls into any of the following categories is eligible for a concession on the annual membership subscription fee.
 
Retired: You are a retired member if you have been a financial full fee paying member of the ACS continuously for 10 years and have retired from all regular employment. This is a permanent concession. Should you return to paid work you must notify the ACS in writing so that your retired membership status can be changed. Normal benefits and services apply. 

Not Currently in Employment: You are a Not Currently in Employment member if you have been a financial full fee paying member of the ACS continuously for at least two years and are unable to work due to circumstances such as unemployment, disability, ill health or parental obligation. Normal benefits and services apply. 

Continuing: You are a Continuing member if you have been a financial full fee paying member of the ACS continuously for at least two years and expect to be out of Australia for a period of greater than 12 months. No benefits or services will be available; this is effectively placing your membership on hold. 

Post Graduate Student: You are a Post Graduate Student if you have been a financial full fee paying member of the ACS continuously for at least two years and are undertaking full time post graduate studies at an Australian institution, such studies to be directly related to the ICT industry. Written evidence from the Institution confirming full time status is required (e.g. a copy of enrolment confirmation). Student benefits and services apply.
