Quick renewal

ICOM renewals for the current year are available until 1 October.

Renewal is simple. It is a two-step process (Step A and Step B) unless you have changed your details when Step C is required.

After you've completed Step A, your renewal will then be validated — this might take a day or two

Step A: pay your renewal

EFT from a bank account is secure and the preferred method of payment.  Pay your renewal rate based on the above Membership rates table. AMaGA members are entitled to a 5% discount as noted in the table.

BSB:                   013 030
Account number: 198 008 971
Account name:    Aus. National Com. ICOM
Reference:          Please use: [your surname] [your ICOM number] with no spaces
                         — for example SMITH22233

Once your payment is received we will activate your renewal and send out your stickers within 2 weeks.

If you can only pay by credit card please do so by phone during business hours:

p:  (02) 6230 0346
m: 0481 216 399

Step B: send an email

Confirm that you have made an EFT by sending an email to Membership . For security reasons, please do not send any paper forms or credit card details by email.

Step C: only required if your details have changed

If you have changed your address, phone number, are no longer a student or have new employment you need to update your details.

1. Go to Log-in

2. Enter:

    Username: [your email address]
    Password:  [your IRIS password or ask to get a new password]

3. Check your details — it is really important that your postal address is correct so that you receive your
    membership sticker for the current year.

Not received your renewal sticker?

If your sticker has not arrived within 3 weeks of your EFT payment let us know: Membership
