Membership to AMIC is by application and approval by the Board. It is open to any employer, person or corporation (excluding employees) who carry on a business in or in connection with the meat industry. Annual membership fees apply and are generally calculated by reference to numbers of premises and employees.
Members are entitled to the range of services offered by AMIC. In addition, financial members are entitled to vote at various elections of state and national Councils pertinent to their industry sector (Retail, Processors/Exporters and Smallgoods) and thereby directly participate in the development of the meat industry.
The AMIC Constitution and Rules contain further details on conditions of membership. Applicants for membership are encouraged to speak to AMIC staff about membership benefits and services in more detail. In nearly all cases, an AMIC Member Services Officer will make a visit to your premises to discuss membership and services as part of the application process.
For those who do not qualify to be full members because of not being directly involved in the meat industry, associate membership is available.
