2. Student member:

Students studying full-time in OHS/WHS and not working full-time can join at minimal cost, provided that they submit evidence of enrolment in a full-time study upon joining.  Student members must provide evidence of enrolment in full-time OHS study upon application and during renewal time in order to retain this level of membership.  Failure to do so will see the student membership suspended until such time evidence of enrolment is provided.   Upon completion of the study OR in the event that full-time study is discontinued, the member will be asked to pay for a General membership to remain as a SIA member. Please note that the provision of Student ID is not sufficient evidence for membership within this category. An academic transcript is preferred. 

Student membership: $30 plus GST (exempt from paying the one-off $30 join fee)
