2024 Membership fees

NZNO membership fees usually increase annually according to the consumer price index (CPI). We know times are tough financially for everyone, but these regular smaller increases have helped to meet rising costs without having to raise fees more substantially every few years.

Recognising the tough financial times we are all in, the Board has worked hard to limit this year’s fee increases to 3.75 percent from 1 April 2024, which is well below the current CPI (4.7 percent in December 2023).

The new membership fees are set out in the table below. If you pay by automatic payment, please update the amount you pay accordingly from 1 April. You do not need to do anything if you pay by direct debit.

What you need to do

  • If your NZNO membership subscription is deducted by your employer, you don't need to do anything.
  • If you pay your NZNO membership subscription by direct debit,  you don’t need to do anything – your payment will automatically adjust to the new fee.
  • If you pay your NZNO membership subscription by automatic payment or online payments, please change your payments to the new rate so as to take effect from 1 April 2024.

Salary deduction payments to cease for new members

From 1 April 2024, we will no longer be offering salary deduction as a method of fee payment for new members. There are two main reasons for this.

  1. Salary deductions take a lot more time for our staff to process and support which is inefficient and more costly than for other payment methods.
  2. Having a third party involved between us can sometimes complicate fee payments, particularly when problems arise. When this happens it’s easier for us to be dealing with each other without a middle party.  

Our preferred payment option is direct debit. We recommend all current members who pay by salary deduction contact our Membership Team to change their payment method (0800 28 38 48 – option 2, or membership@nzno.org.nz). 

Please ensure you quote your NZNO Membership number on all payments.
