Each WI Member pays a subscription fee for her membership. Subscriptions rates are set by the NFWI Board of Trustees, after consulting the National Council (which is made up of representatives from each Federation).

Subscription payments for the 2023-2024 year will be due from members in April 2023.

The membership subscription for 2023-2024 is £46.00.

WIs now have the flexibility each year to decide whether to either waive their portion of the subscription fee, reduce it slightly, or keep it the same. If you need advice on this, please contact your WI Adviser whose details can be found in the Year Book. Or click here to find out more about the subscription flexibility initiative.

The distribution of the 2023-2024 subscription is as follows:
