Membership Subscription Concessions 2020

The Society has a number of membership subscription concessions available for members in certain categories. If during the year your circumstances change, you are required to notify us directly. Applications for concessionary subscriptions are reviewed and approved on an annual basis.

Concessions must be applied for annually. In order to be eligible for a concession, an application must be made to the Society no later than 1st of March 2021.

Please note that a member can only apply for one category in any calendar year.




An academic concession is available for persons whose income derives from the teaching of SCSI accredited courses for the year 2019/20 and gain at least 90% of earned income from this employment.


An overseas concession is available to persons who are employed outside of the Republic of Ireland on a temporary basis and wish to retain their membership of the Society.


A retired concession is available for those members who no longer work within the surveying profession for remuneration and do not expect to return to work in the near future in the field of surveying for remuneration.


An unemployed concession is available for those members who are currently unemployed and seeking work.


A concession is available for those members who are on maternity/paternity or adoption leave. It is applicable to those taking 6 months or more of leave.


A concession is available for the annual subscription for those members who are currently unable to work due to ill-health or incapacity. The SCSI works closely with LionHeart to offer an expanded package of support to its members in the Republic of Ireland. These include Grants, Back to Work assistance, Counselling, and much more, which as available to all current or past members.  


In all cases, a member availing of a concession is obliged to inform the Society of a change in circumstances.

As part of our audit process, the Society requires that you submit evidence of eligibility for the claim as outlined in the application form. This is to ensure that the concession is applied fairly and doesn’t place an unnecessary burden on other members who are paying full membership subscription rates.

NB - All concession applications must be accompanied with full payment of the relevant concessionary fee.

Annual CPD requirements for all concessions remain. We encourage you to use our online and webinars to assist in this process. For those with a Retirement concession, your CPD will not be monitored as you won't be in practice or planning to return to practice. Those members with incomplete CPD records in previous years will be reviewed by the reinstatement committee when they seek to re-enter out of the Retirement concession.

Late Subscription Renewal and Readmission

Should a membership subscription remain outstanding beyond 31st March 2021, an additional levy of 10% is applied reflecting the increased administration in the subscription collection process. The continued non-payment of a subscription also means that a person’s membership of the Society is put into suspension resulting in a ceasing of all communications from the Society including access to the members section of the website. The suspended members name is also placed before the Council meeting in June where consideration is given to removing from membership those who have failed to pay their subscription fee.

Readmission Procedures & Charges

Where a member allows their membership of the Society to lapse, they must apply to the Council of the Society for re-instatement and may be required to pay a re-admission fee. All members in this position must pay the fee in full before the membership may again become active.
