Annual Subscription 2019

Message from the Honorary Treasurer and Chair of the Finance Committee

As you are all too aware, this year has been a challenging year for General Practitioners and for the College. The Board and Council of the College are aware to of the ongoing challenges facing general practice and the Finance Committee has endeavoured to reflect this in its policies, including the decision not to change the membership annual subscription which has remained static since 2013.

You will have received an email notification advising that your annual subscription to the College for 2019 has become due.

I would like to highlight to you that as a member you may access, view and pay your annual invoice online.

Currently the College has 49% of its members paying by direct debit and this is of great benefit to the College. Members are encouraged to avail of the Direct Debit facility which allows you to pay your subscription on a monthly or quarterly basis at no extra cost. The monthly debit for the full subscription is €89.33 per month. A direct debit mandate may be downloaded from your online membership invoice or you may contact Annette Elebert, Membership Administrator directly at the College ( 01-6763705.

A schedule of membership subscription rates including detailing the different subscription categories is provided here. The subscription categories reflect the different needs of members and a member may apply for a change of subscription category as his/her circumstances change. However, changes to subscription categories must be applied for before 31st May2019 and may not be backdated.

In order to ensure equity to all, members are required to pay their annual subscription in full by 31st May 2019.

The College will continue to facilitate any member who may find themselves in financial difficulties. In this regard members are encouraged to contact the College by email to Ms. Annette Elebert, Membership Administrator at
