Membership is a part of the National Association, but for administrative and participation purposes, members are aligned to a state or territory in Australia. There are two overseas branches – Europe or North America. Members may also be aligned to a regional group in those states that have them. Members who live in one state may choose to ‘align’ with another regional group, particularly where a neighbouring regional group exists. However, only one state alignment is possible.

Members may elect to be admitted as an annual member, three-year member or life member either by one, two or four instalments
