How much is membership?

As of January 2021, membership is now free!

You have the choice of joining a local Branch (listed here) or the HQ Roll, which is a virtual branch led by the team in Central office.

Some individual Branches may also charge a small annual subscription, which will be payable on their request.

Once you become a member you will then be able to use or visit any of our 270 branches across the world. 

We look forward to welcoming you to the RNA.
