Membership fees

New members

In November 2019, CIOL moved from a fixed annual membership renewal to a rolling membership model. New members can join at any time of year and receive a full year of membership. Your membership will begin on the day it is confirmed and will be valid for a full calendar year.

Existing members

For members who joined before November 2019, your renewal date will remain the same, i.e. 1 September. We will remind you to renew at least 6 weeks before your renewal date.

1 September 2020 - 31 August 2021
