fbe Membership Criteria

The fbe reserves the right to limit applications within certain disciplines to ensure that we maintain a balanced membership.  The membership criteria for the fbe applies to any new applications and is not a retrospective policy.  All applications will be approved by a Director of the fbe as designated by the Board and their decision will be final.

The fbe membership year runs from 1st March to 28th February. Membership fees are pro-rata from April to November each membership year. Thereafter members who apply from:

  • 1st December pay for 15 months membership.
  • 1st January 14 months membership.
  • 1st February new members pay for 13 months membership.

This will bring you in line with the fbe membership renewal cycle for the following year. See all our membership types and criteria below:
