WOC Membership Year:

The membership contribution is pro-rated for the portion of the calendar year remaining, e.g. a commitment to join in January engenders a membership contribution for 12 months; a commitment to join in July engenders a 6-month membership contribution, i.e. 50% of the annual rate.

For existing WOC Members membership contribution invoices are sent by November of each year for the coming membership year. Contributions are due during the first quarter of the membership year by 31st March.
