However, for new members of the AJOA the membership fee for their first year of membership of the AJOA is $60 (GST inclusive).
Member Benefits Scheme
The AJOA Governing Council has decided not to renew the member benefits scheme when it expires on 30 June 2022. Current AJOA members may continue to use the scheme until that date here: https://ajoa.rewards-plus.com.au/.
If you have used the scheme to purchase electronic gift cards, please ensure that you print or download these cards prior to 30 June 2022 as you will not be able to recover the value of these cards after the agreement with Member Benefits Australia expires.
