Do you want us to invoice your subscriptions annually or for a three-year period.
Three year period
Students and Post-Doctoral members do not qualify for Three year membership
Subscriptions for a three-year period - following benefits:
It is less admin for SACI having to send out the invoice only once every three years instead of annually
It is easier for members whose fees are paid for by their company or university to get them to make one payment instead of three separate payments and
MOST IMPORTANTLY, you are immune from subscription increases for three years i.e. you will only pay three times the 2019/20 membership rate and avoid any increases which will be brought in for 2020/21 and 2021/22.
Every member is required so to order his/her conduct as to uphold the dignity of the profession of Chemistry; and in whatever capacity he/she may be engaged, to act towards his/her clients, employers, others with whom his/her work is connected, and his/her fellow-members in a manner consistent with the Mission of the Institute.
I declare that while I am a member of The South African Chemical Institute, I will observe the regulations of the Institute and that I will conduct myself in a manner that befits the profession and to the utmost of my power maintain the dignity and welfare of the Institute.
