Band 2 - 5a Membership
This type of membership is approved PA Council, which meets six times a year. When considering membership applications the Council is required to satisfy itself that the membership criteria have been met. A membership year runs from the 1st January and except for bands two and three a subscription is calculated on a scale based on the band in which the applicant's turnover falls, calculated as a minimum payable on turnover up to the bottom of the band plus an increment payable per 1,000 of turnover (or part thereof) over the bottom of the band. Bands two and three are a fixed fee. Definition of turnover can be found here
