Here at the Association of Chairs we are keen to meet the needs of our members and potential members. Some of you told us you found the membership fee for larger organisations difficult to find or to ask your organisation to pay. We’ve listened and taken the decision to reduce our membership fees.

From October 2014 the rates for new members will be:

£100 for Chairs of organisations with income of £5m and over 
£50 for Chairs of organisations with income below £5 million

The same fees apply to Vice Chairs and former Chairs.

We believe this makes our membership accessible to all and will help ensure members have a wide and varied peer network. We already have a number of events planned for the coming months, and we will soon be launching a new guide for Chairs. Members will receive their own complementary print copy. We also plan to develop further the members only resources on our website.

If you haven’t joined yet – we hope you will now. And please tell others who may be eligible to join.

If you are a member who joined before the 1st October and have not received an email about how this change affects your current membership please contact us at
