Each WI Member pays a subscription fee to cover the cost of her membership and to help with running the organisation. The 2021 subscription is £44, which is split between the WI, federation and the NFWI to help with running individual groups and the organisation as a whole.
Dual members pay an additional £21.60 to their second WIs, on top of their main subscription. There is no pro-rata rate for dual membership; the fee is set for the year.
