Membership Years

A membership year for BCCI Membership commences on the date you join BCCI and ends on the 12-month anniversary of joining.

BCCI Membership will continue until a written resignation of membership is received by BCCI.

Membership Fees

You agree to pay BCCI the annual membership fee as detailed in your membership application form or as determined by BCCI from time to time.

The Annual Membership Fees are GST exclusive unless provided otherwise.

BCCI offers two options for payment of the Annual Membership Fees:

  • one-off total payment in full; or
  • 12-monthly instalment payments by direct debit to be given upon request.

One-off payment:

  • The one-off payment of the Annual Membership Fees will be payable in full upfront upon applying for membership (or seeking renewal or reinstatement of membership for subsequent Membership Years (as the case may be)).
  • If your membership is resigned during a Membership Year, the one-off payment of the Annual Membership Fees for that Membership Year will not be refunded.

12-monthly instalment payments:

  • Members may choose to take up the 12-monthly instalment plan for payment of the Annual Membership Fees. This option is only available if payments are received via direct debit and upfront on the start date of the membership period. The first monthly instalment is payable upfront upon applying for membership (or seeking renewal or reinstatement of membership for subsequent Membership Years (as the case may be)) and the remaining balance of the Annual Membership Fee is split equally by the remaining 11 months in the Membership Year. For the remaining 11 months, the direct debit will occur each month on the same day that the first debit order occurred.
  • Members who have chosen to pay the Annual Membership Fees by 12-monthly instalments must ensure that all payments are completed and that the total Annual Membership Fees have been paid by the end of the Membership Year.
  • If a Member chooses to resign their membership prior to the end of the Membership Year, the balance of their Annual Membership Fee (being, all remaining monthly instalments) is due and payable immediately upon resignation.
