To support our members during the unusual and difficult time of the COVID-19 pandemic, membership fees have been restructured for the period 1 April 2020 – 31 March 2021.
 
Previously, our membership fee structure was as follows
$45.00 – Standard Membership – For all families
$30.00 – School Aged Multiples – Families whose multiples are of school age
 
For this coming year, all new and renewing members will be welcome to “Choose your own membership.” This allows all families to access a discounted membership regardless of if, or how, you have been impacted by the economic changes triggered by COVID-19.
 
Our new membership options:
$30.00 – 2020/21 Discounted Membership – For all families
$15.00 – 2020/21 Hardship Membership – Families experiencing hardship. This covers our overheads and affiliation contribution to our national organisation – Australian Multiple Birth Association (AMBA).
