ICS lapsed membership policy:
The ICS year runs from 1 June to the 31 May each year. Each member is invoiced via e-mail and/or mail on 1 May. Subscription must be paid by 1 June.
A subscription reminder letter is sent to all unpaid members via e-mail and/or mail in August.
A final reminder letter for payment is sent to all outstanding members via e-mail and/or mail in January. Unpaid members will be reminded in May by email and/or mail that they will become lapsed on 31 May.
If a member does not pay their subscription either directly to head office or to their local branch by 31 May, then they are considered to be a lapsed member and their status is changed accordingly on both Branch office and Head Office records.
The list of members and non-members on the website will be updated in June each year.
The membership status of a lapsed member can be re-established if they settle the outstanding balance on their account.
