Additional Information

The ASORC ® Membership financial year runs from 1 July to 30 June each year.

Membership fees are renewable at the beginning of each financial year.

Members have until 31 July in which to pay their annual membership fee before being considered in breach of the Constitution and therefore lapsed members.

Conditions of readmittance for Lapsed Members:

  1. Reassessment against current ASORC ® membership criteria
  2. Late Payment fee
  3. No pro-rata of membership fees if rejoining partway through membership year.

Payment of application fee is required before processing online applications (excepting student applications). The application fee is not refundable should your application be unsuccessful. Payment of membership fees does not constitute approval of your membership application. You will be advised regarding the outcome of your application.

Annual membership fees at a reduced rate are available in the following situations:

  • Maternity leave - where a minimum of six months leave per year is taken (maximum of two concurrent years);
  • Paternity leave - where a minimum of six months leave is taken;
  • Retired members;
  • Demonstrated hardship.

Supporting documentation may be required in these circumstances. Further details are available on application to ASORC ® National Office.
