Renewing for multiple years

Renewing your IoD membership for multiple years makes your life easier by ensuring that you have full and uninterrupted access to your membership benefits for the term you select, without having to renew each year. It also saves you money by protecting your membership from any future increase in subscription fees (for the period of your membership term). You can renew for terms from 2 to 18 years. If you renew for 18 years you will become a life member.

PLUS if you renew your membership for three or more years (terms and conditions apply), we will send you a complimentary gift by way of saying thank you for your commitment to us. See the renew membership page for more information.
