  • Case studyHow are BAOT subscriptions decided upon?Reviewed by membership and external affairs Board (MEB) every January meeting. Board made up of appointed members. They may decide a new category of membership is required or a subscriber category should be charged more or less. 2008 MEB decided that Overseas membership should increase beyond the baseline annual increase, based on the increasing cost of overseas postage and increasing access to online resources for overseas members. That a new category of ‘career break’ should be established allowing existing professional members to have reduced membership for 12 months to cover maternity leave or carers leave. This proposal then went to council where it was discussed and agreed. This formed part of the annual proposal for subscriptions that went to the AGM in 2008. The proposals were debated by those attending and ‘career break’ was adopted but the increase proposed for overseas members was rejected.
