4. How can I pay for my membership?

The CDI have now launched a brand new payment method for keeping your membership up to date. We can now accept annual direct debit payments to help ensure that you never miss a renewal.  We are currently offering a special rate of £92 for anyone who signs up to an annual direct debit. This special offer is available from the 1st September 2016 onwards. To take advantage of this special offer please complete the online mandate form. This opportunity is also available to members that have already paid this years membership as we have flexibility on payment dates and the ability to take payments on future dates.  Please note that direct debit payments are only available on an annual basis at this time.
