Membership fees for one financial year are as follows:
Student/Retiree Membership: $25
Standard Membership: $150
Precious Stone Tiered Membership:
Diamond - Any nominated amount over $500
Precious Stone tiered Membership structure allows you total financial contribution to ALMA to be entirely tax deductible as it is a membership fee. This is in response to members' suggestion and agreement at the 2012 AGM.
For any member, including students/retirees, with personal circumstances that make payment of the above fees difficult, ALMA will accept a membership fee of any amount $5 and over at the member's own discretion.
On payment of your membership fee you will be asked to select a confidentiality level as below.
Level 1: Details can be made available only to the ALMA committee and shall be used only so that ALMA can forward information (i.e. not "out" to other ALMA members)
Level 2: Details can be made available to any member of ALMA (i.e. "out" to ALMAs only)
Level 3: Details can be made available to anyone at the discretion of the Committee (i.e. "out" to public)
Members nominating Level 3 accept that their name and image may be used in publicly available documents such as ALMA website materials and press releases.
