Membership fees

To be a member of Dietitians Australia, you must be a qualified dietitian or a dietetics student studying an accredited course

Membership fees are:

  • paid on an annual basis (January - December) 
  • paid in full (12 months) or instalment* (4 payments) and
  • non-refundable (unless Parental Leave is undertaken)
