Categories of Membership

  • There are four categories of membership: Ordinary, concessional, overseas and honorary.
  • A member who is financially disadvantaged, is a fulltime student, or is not in fulltime employment may apply to become a concessional member. Those seeking the concessional rate should contact the AARE office and provide evidence as to why they warrant concessional status. Students should provide proof of student status (e.g. a letter from the university).
