All MIAL members are bound by our Constitution, a copy of which can be obtained by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are four categories to MIAL membership:
- Full member organisation
- Associate member
- Professional member
- Honorary member
A full member shall be any person which, either in its own right or through a wholly owned company or subsidiary:
- has capital invested (including people) in activities/operations relating to maritime assets in the Australian maritime industry; or
- that otherwise has or is involved in actual or potential activities, operations or interests in the Australian maritime industry.
An associate member may be any person who, in the opinion of the MIAL Board, would benefit the objectives of the Association.
A professional member may be either an entity that employs or engages or has as partners fewer than five (5) people, or an individual or sole trader.
An honorary member is an individual who has provided exemplary service to MIAL, its predecessor organisations or the industry more broadly. Honorary membership is bestowed entirely at the discretion of the MIAL Board.
Acceptance of membership
MIAL membership commences on acceptance of membership application in accordance with the MIAL constitution.
Transfer of membership
MIAL membership and its rights are personal to the member and are not transferable.
As a company limited by guarantee, MIAL full members provide a guarantee under the MIAL Constitution in the event of a winding up. The guarantee is limited to $100.
Membership fees are invoiced quarterly for full members and annually for associate and professional members. Specific arrangements are considered in special circumstances.
Membership fees are GST inclusive.
