Wildlife and Countryside Link has two types of membership - full and associate. This page gives information on Full Membership.
The cost of membership comprises a fixed fee (subject to an annual inflationary increase) and a variable fee element based on annual turnover of the applicant organisation. Payment is due in January, but monthly direct debit payments can be arranged on request.
Subscription rates for Full Membership in 2014:
Fixed fee: £600
Variable Fee: 0.05% of the organisation's total annual income
Procedure for joining
You will need to complete an application form and send it online, by post or fax together with copies of your Annual Report, constitution and Articles of Association and latest set of accounts to the Link office (all information you send will remain confidential within Link).
It is highly recommended that you discuss your interest in applying for membership with Link’s Director before submitting your application form. The Director will be able to answer any questions you may have regarding your application for membership.
All applications are considered by the current membership. If successful, you will become a full member of Link within two months of the date you submit your application form. Link has the absolute right to accept or reject an application (on a vote if necessary). If an application is declined we will seek to be as transparent as possible although no explanation need necessarily be given.
If you would like to discuss joining Link please contact the Secretariat.
