Announcement Regarding Deaf Australia Membership Structure Changes


Hi My name is Debra Swann - Chair of Deaf Australia. This message is about the new membership structure following from the new constitution which was approved at our AGM last 18 November 2023.

The Board of Deaf Australia now have a new membership structure as following:

 1.⁠ ⁠General membership - $50 per year

 2.⁠ ⁠Low incomes and students - $25.00 per year

 3.⁠ ⁠Under 18. - $5.00 per year

From 18 November onwards - any new members who join will now follow this structure.

However for our current members - the new structure will start on 1st July 2025. Deaf Australia will email you before July 1, 2025, to inform you of the annual membership fee change. That applies to our existing members on the old membership structure, while new members will follow the new one.

In a few days, it will be Christmas. The board of Deaf Australia wishes you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Please stay safe and enjoy the holiday festival. We look forward to business with you in 2024 and beyond.
