The South Australian Apiarists' Association uses an Online Membership and Registration system.

Prospective members can sign up using an online form and pay for their membership via Paypal or Credit Card (VISA, Mastercard, AMEX). There is also an Offline (Bank Transfer) method of payment available.

Once signed up online, members will be able to renew their membership when it becomes due using the same online system. Members will receive reminder emails when their membership is due to expire.

Access to the Members Only areas of the website will be automatically granted once the online signup and payment process is completed. Currently access to these areas is hidden, but once your Member Logon is granted, a large number of additional menu items will become visible and accessible.

The Association’s membership year runs from 1st May through to 30th April the following year. Members who join part way through the year will be charged on a pro-rated basis which will be automatically calculated when completing the membership sign-up process.

There are currently 2 different subscription categories available;

  1. Sign up as a full SAAA member with votes and fees proportionate to the number of hives you manage, with access to all Member Only areas of the site, Field Days and Training Days.
  2. Sign up to only receive the SAAA Newsletter, with no votes and a fixed fee, with no access to the Member Only areas - only access to the Buzz Newsletter, no access to Field Days or Training Days (unless paying as a non-member).

Listed below are the available subscription options with GST inclusive pricing. There are no surcharges for using Credit Cards (VISA, Mastercard, AMEX) or Paypal to make payment. 

To register, select the plan corresponding to the number of hives you manage and click the Sign Up button.

There is a tutorial available to assist with the sign up process.

For those that prefer the old paper registration process, the paper based Membership Application Form can be downloaded.
