Reduced Rates for Annual Subscriptions

Section 8.2 of the AACB by-laws provides for Council to approve a reduced fee provided that the applicant has an income of less than 60% of the salary of a first year Hospital Scientist employed under the Hospital Scientists (Public Hospital Scientists') State Award of NSW OR is residing overseas for at least one year OR has ceased either temporary or permanent employment OR is not ordinarily resident in Australia or New Zealand OR is entirely ceased to be engaged in either temporary or permanent employment. Overseas members will automatically attract a reduced rate, which will be applied to the subscription renewal. Australasian members earning less than $41,300 per annum will pay 60% of the full fee appropriate to their category of membership.
