  • If you have a specialist interest - be it land, air, sea or space then Associate Membership may be better suited to your needs.

  • If you are a professional navigator, or have worked in the navigation industry for some years then you may like to apply for Associate Fellowship.

  • If you are a commercial organisation, then Corporate Membership gives you unique benefits - including a 10% discount on all your Navigation News and website advertising.

If none of these suit your needs or you would like to discuss your options further please contact the Membership Secretary.
