Join Now

AMC (Australian Marriage Celebrants) membership renewal occurs on your yearly membership anniversary, which may vary as members can now join at any time during the year. When your renewal is due, you have the chance to extend your membership for the upcoming year, ensuring continued access to the benefits and resources provided by the AMC Association.

As an existing AMC member, you will receive a special discounted renewal offer via email before your membership anniversary. This provides you with a month to renew at the special discounted rate. If you miss this exclusive offer, you can still renew your annual membership at the standard renewal fee. An email with details of the standard renewal fee will be sent in the month your annual membership is due.

Both emails will include clear instructions on how to renew your membership through the AMC website.

The AMC allows a grace period of 2 months for members to renew their annual membership. After this period, your profile will be suspended, and access to the members’ area will be revoked. In such cases, the celebrant will need to re-register as a new member.

By extending your membership during the annual renewal period, you can maintain your status as an AMC Association member and retain access to the association’s resources, support, and professional development opportunities.

“If you’re considering joining the AMC (Australian Marriage Celebrants) at any point during the year, it’s worth noting that the association offers this option. This grants individuals the chance to become members and gain access to the association’s benefits and resources outside of the standard July enrollment period. This flexibility accommodates those who wish to become members and ensures they can make the most of the association’s benefits and resources.
