If there are no changes to be made to your subscription category or member details and you pay by direct debit you do not need to contact us and your existing subscription will remain in place.

If you have not received your renewal by the end of February, please email subscriptions [at] archaeologists.net or telephone 0118 3786446 and we can send you another.
Subscription bands are based on your grade of membership. This structure allows accredited members (PCIfA, ACIfA and MCIfA) on lower incomes to apply for a reduced subscription rate and to ensure a fair subscription for those who earn less than the recommended minimum salary for their grade of membership.
If you are an accredited member (PCIfA, ACIfA and MCIfA) and your income is below the recommended minima salary for your grade of membership you can apply for a concessionary rate. For example, you may be an Associate (ACIfA) member of the Institute and expected to pay an annual fee of £168. But if you are employed in a post that has PCIfA-level responsibility and pay, you would then be able to apply for a reduction in your subscription fee to the rate paid by a PCIfA member (£122). If you are earning less than the PCIfA recommended minimum salary then you can apply for a further reduction to the PCIfA concessionary rate of £76. If you work part-time you would also be eligible for a concessionary rate if your income does not meet the relevant recommended scale - as outlined above you would need to provide details of your income. The subscription rate for those who are not currently in employment or earn less than £10,000 will be £25.
