Student Membership is available for students undertaking full-time or part-time study in a relevant course and who are working less than 25 hours per week. On submission of enrolment proof, and letter from employer confirming number of hours worked (if applicable), students are offered their first year’s membership free. Student membership costs $118.00 each year thereafter.

Concessional membership applies to those who have recently retired or have some adverse circumstances to be taken into consideration. Membership on this basis enables you to maintain access to RIMPA.
An allied member refers to an individual interested in engaging with RIMPA (Records and Information Management Practitioners Alliance) but is not directly engaged in an information management capacity. This membership is open to various professions, including Document Controllers, CEOs or CIOs, Librarians, Data Managers, and individuals holding Governance Roles.
Allied members hold the responsibility for records and information management in specific industries, such as Primary Schools, Secondary Schools, Not for Profits, Mining and Construction. Individuals seeking membership whose job responsibilities encompass roles such as information, data, content, knowledge, records, and similar areas are not eligible for this particular category.
For those seeking active involvement within the RIMPA Community, joining as a Practitioner is recommended. If you believe the above-mentioned allied membership aligns with your requirements, please feel free to reach out to the membership team for further information.
Corporate membership is available to all organisations involved with, or interested in records and information management industry. Each Corporate Membership specifies nominees to receive membership benefits while in the employ of the company. Membership provides the nominated staff within the organisation the opportunity to develop and maintain industry knowledge while employees keep abreast of industry changes, ensuring your organisation is compliant with various Acts in Australia and New Zealand.
Please Note: Membership begins on the day it is paid and is valid for 365 days.
