Excited? Join us today in 1 easy step! 

Step 1: Register your contact and payment details here.

You'll need the email addresses of 2 Nominators who are current ASI members and able to support your membership application.

🚩 Please make sure you:

  • use their ASI-registered email address (as using a different one will delay your application).
  • have asked them if they are current members (if they are not, this will further delay your application).

Your 2 Nominators will be contacted for approval - all they have to do head into their member profile and click 'Yes' to endorse your membership application. If they are not current members, we'll ask them to renew their membership so they can approve yours.  If they choose not to renew, they're prompted to let us know and you'll have the option of finding another Nominator to expedite your membership application.

When your application is finalised you will receive email confirmation.

ℹ️ See the 2 options below for how the time of joining affects your membership and the conditions you may wish to consider.

  • This allows eligibility to apply for ASI opportunities including ASI International Travel Awards (provided other eligibility criteria are met) if membership is renewed prior to the 1st April the following year. For e.g. Full membership is paid in 2018, renewal is made in 2019 prior to 1st April 2019, allows eligibility for International Travel Award applications in 2019.

Join in the second half of the year and pay for an Interim Membership (50% discount off Ordinary or Student Membership).

  • This grants membership for the remainder of the year from the time of application.
