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 2022-2023 year will be due from members on 1 April 2022.

The membership subscription for 2022-2023 is £44.00.

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.

The distribution of the 2022-2023 subscription is as follows:
