2021 Membership

How to become a member

Each WI Member pays a subscription fee in exchange for their membership. Subscriptions rates are set by the NFWI Board of Trustees in prior consultation with the National Council.

The subscription for April 2021 is £44.00.

Where does my subscription go?

  • £21.60 of the subscription is kept by your WI

  • £10.30 goes to the Nottinghamshire federation

  • £1 goes to the National Federation of Women's Institutes

What do I get for my membership?

Every WI holds at least 11 meetings each year. As a member, you can contribute ideas to the annual programme of speakers, activities and events. The Mansfield Marians do not have a meeting in August, instead we organise a social outing.

You are also kept up to date with federation and national level opportunities through regular mailings and newsletters.

In addition, you receive eight copies a year of the WI membership magazine, WI Life, and have access to exclusive information and resources on My WI.
