NAMSS Membership Costs

NAMSS has a simple and flexible approach to membership:

Membership costs £150 for the ‘Lead Contact’ * (normally the Head of Student Services within a college, or similar role) and then £100 per membership for the next four additional members and then £50 for the fifth member and every additional member thereafter. All named members will be given individual access to our website and jiscmail resources.

* Your ‘Lead Contact’ will normally have budget holder responsibility and would therefore authorise NAMSS membership on behalf of your organisation.

Subscriptions run from September 1st to August 31st annually. You can apply for membership at any time during the year and a pro-rated rate will be applied. Contact Jackie Cannell at for details.

Those wishing to join NAMSS are asked to read and follow the NAMSS Code of Conduct.
