More than two of you?

If at least three people from the same organisation join at the same time we will waive the £55 joining fee, saving at least £165. Send the applications in together and make sure each is clearly marked with the code 'CIPR3'. Membership is still awarded on a individual basis. This offer applies to new members only.

More than 10 of you? If you are joining or renewing at least 10 individuals from the same organisation, please email membership@cipr.co.uk to discuss our bespoke memberships scheme.

Payment breaks and discounts

We aim to support our members throughout their careers and across career breaks. We offer a range of membership payment plans designed to help existing members keep up their membership and accreditations during maternity, paternity or adoption leave, part-time working, unemployment and retirement. If you are an existing member, please contact the membership team to discuss your membership options.

No tax or VAT

Your membership subscription is tax deductible if you pay it yourself. Include your membership subscription in your annual tax return or write to your tax office with details of your subscription so that your tax code can be adjusted.

And there's no VAT on your membership fee either.
