Each WI Member pays a subscription fee to cover the cost of her membership and to help with running the organisation. The 2020 subscription is £43, which is split between the WI, federation and the NFWI to help with running individual groups and the organisation as a whole.
Dual members pay an additional £21.10 to their second WIs, on top of their main subscription. There is no pro-rata rate for dual membership; the fee is set for the year.
Pro-rata subscriptions for new members
A new member joining the WI for the first time (or who has not been a member of any WI in the past 10 years) pays a pro-rata subscription. This depends on when she joins, as shown below.
