WI Subscription Rates for 2023-24

We have just received notice from NFWI with details of the WI subscription for 2023-24.

Honorary Treasurer Jeryl Stone writes:

Based on the various economic challenges all our charities are facing, and the less-than inflationary increases to membership fees in recent years (including a freeze last year), I am afraid that we are unsurprisingly in a position where we must increase membership fees for the coming membership year. However, we have worked hard to ensure that this increase is well below inflation.

The total subscription will increase by £2, making the full subscription £46. The breakdown among the three levels of the WI is as follows:

New members joining the WI from April 2023 for the first time, or who have not been members of any WI in the past year, will pay a pro-rata subscription depending on the quarter in which they join. The rate per quarter and the distribution are shown in the following table:

1 April-30 June£46.00£22.60£10.80£12.60
1 July-30 September£34.50£16.95£8.10£9.45
1 October-31 December£23.00£11.30£5.40£6.30
1 January-31 March£11.50£5.65£2.70£3.15

Subscription Flexibility
Don’t forget that individual WIs can apply the flexibility policy to their 2023/24 subscription. This means you can charge the full amount of the WI portion of the subscription, reduce your portion of the subscription or waive the WI portion of the subscription entirely. 

Dual Membership
Dual members will pay the WI portion only to their second WI. If the WI is not utilising the flexibility policy, this will be £22.60. There is no pro-rata rate for dual membership, and the set fee will remain payable at any time during the year.

If you or your WI Treasurer have any questions about the subscription for the coming year or how to apply the pro-rata subscriptions, please don’t hesitate to ask. You can contact your WI Adviser or the Federation Office.
