AUS Membership Renewals

Sign up or renew your AUS membership now and save 20%!

AUS membership runs from 1st July to 30th June each year. If you haven't attended an AUS or affiliate event since 1st July, you probably haven't renewed your AUS membership yet for 2006/2007.

Membership renewal is only $20 for the whole year, which is a 20% discount on the new members price, but this discounted price is normally only available for renewals completed within 3 months of the end of the previous membership (i.e. for renewals before 30th September).

The AUS is pleased to announce it has extended the offer of membership at the renewal price to anyone who has previously been an AUS member (in any year) until the end of October 2006!

Details on membership renewals, pricing and the application form are on the AUS website – see
