Member Renewal for 2020-21 - Fees Waived

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the ARNA National Committee has reviewed ARNA's operations and priorities for member services going forward for 2020 and 2021.
We have advised previously of the impacts of COVID-19 on face-to-face education events and the 30th National Conference, and continue to consider how best to support members, while maintaining ARNA operations and sustaining ARNA's purpose.

Therefore, an important decision has been maide to waive member renewal fees for current ARNA members for the next membership period (2020-21 financial year).

This means:
- Your current ARNA membership continues until 30 June 2021
- You will receive a renewal notice in Feb/March 2021 for the next membership year ending 30 June 2022.
- For any new members joining during this period, the usual membership fees will apply.
