How we are funded
Membersí contributions consist of three parts:-
Political Fund Contributions:
These contributions provide the principal source of income for the Political Fund which fund is for the furtherance of political objects as defined by legislation.
These contributions which vary from local association to local association provide the principal source of income for the local associations of the Institute. Expenditure by local associations is governed by local constitutions but is essentially similar to that met from the Instituteís General Fund. Members of Self-Governing Associations may opt out of paying these contributions.
