Reduced Affiliate rate (low and lower middle income economies)

FPM also offers an Affiliate Reduced rate membership fee of £60 to new and existing Affiliate members who qualified in and are currently practising in specific countries.  The reduced fee is based on the current World Bank classification of both low and lower-middle income economies as listed on http://data.worldbank.org/about/country-classifications/country-and-lending-groups

Applicants who have qualified in and are practising in countries on these lists will be eligible for the reduced fee and the criteria for Affiliate membership remains the same regardless of the country of the applicant's qualification or practice.
