There are two options when applying for Precaster membership – Provisional Precaster membership or full Precaster membership.

Applications for either category require a  Factory Certification Inspection. Membership fees may be pro-rata’d in the first year and membership is automatically renewed on 1st July for a further 12 months period. Resignations must be submitted in writing and fees will be payable until such written advice is provided.

Provisional Precaster membership

Provisional Precaster membership has been introduced as a lower cost ‘try before you buy’ option for precasters who want to find out more about what membership involves. Because the fees are significantly lower than full Precaster membership, it applies for a maximum 2 year term and excludes some marketing benefits (e.g. case studies, videos and job leads) and the ability to nominate for Board and Standards committees. Provisional Precaster members still receive the other benefits offered to full Precaster members (see below).

Provisional Precaster Small (<30 employees, operating in only one state)                            $2500pa (ex GST)
Provisional Precaster Large (>30 employees, operating in more than one state)                 $6000pa (ex GST)

♦ Help and support with questions and problems;

This information will be treated as STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL by the CEO and accounts staff.
