Changes to Academic & Student Membership

From 1 January 2019 only students who are enrolled at institutions that are current Academic Members of the Concrete Institute of Australia will be eligible for Free Student Membership.

Students not enrolled with a current Academic Member can still take out Student Membership however an annual membership fee of $35.00 (Incl. GST) applies.

In either case students applicants must apply directly to the Concrete Institute and show that they meet the membership requirements.  That is they must be:

  • An Australian resident.
  • Enrolled full time in a course of study related to concrete technology and practice as applied in the design, construction, supply, provision of materials and maintenance of concrete structures.

Current Student Members renewing after 1 January 2019 will also need to meet these requirements.

If an Academic Member is cancelled for any reason future student applicants enrolled at the institution will not be eligible for Free Student Membership however they would be able to take out Paid Student Membership assuming they meet the other eligibility criteria.

Free Student Members at the time of the Academic Membership cancellation will remain valid until the Student Membership falls due for renewal, at which time the Student Member would need to convert to Paid Student Membership (assuming they meet the other eligibility criteria) to remain a Student Member.

If the institution at which a Paid Student Member is enrolled becomes an Academic Member the student will continue to be considered a Paid Student Member and has no entitlement to a refund of the membership fee.  They will be eligible to convert to Free Student Membership when their next renewal falls due.

All Student Member renewals will continue to fall due on 31 March of each year and no pro rata fee will apply to Paid Student Members.

A list of current Academic Members can be found below.
