Membership fees

Membership fees are broken down into two parts: a one-off election fee and an annual subscription fee. A one- or two-year membership of the IoD will be subject to a election fee. For full details please see below.

Covid-19 - Wavied Election Fees

Due to the current situation with Covid-19 we are waiving our election fees to reduce the price of membership so you can still get the support you need from the IoD in these difficult times.
