Membership Fees

The way CIPA charges for its webinar programme is changing from 1 January 2021. CIPA Council has decided to incorporate the cost of the webinar programme into the annual cost of membership. This will mean a moderate increase in annual subscriptions to enable the webinar programme to be open to all members, without the need to pay to attend individuals webinars.
Fellows, Associate Members, EPA Members and Overseas Members will see subscriptions increase by £55, IP Paralegal Members will pay an additional £25. All members will be able to participate in the open access webinar programme without having to pay for individual webinars.
Lee Davies, CIPA Chief Executive, recorded a short video to explain the decision.
