Frequently asked questions before joining
If you are thinking about joining MUA as a new member, you surely will have questions. We have collected the most frequently asked questions on this page for you.
What is the difference between the different membership types?
All members can engage in all MUA activities - regardless of their membership level!
Organisations can invite a certain number of additional people from the organisation to engage in MUA activity on their behalf.
Voting is a function of your membership level. Each Australian dollar of membership provides you with 1 voting point - so the higher the membership level, the greater your voting power.
Can I give more money to the Association?
Additional donations are added to the pool of development project funds. But extra donations are not rewarded with more than the top level (10,000) of voting points.
What happens to my membership fee
Your membership fee is used to fund our development projects. A small proportion is used for required MUA business administration (such as taxes and services).
What is GST and do I have to pay it?
GST is Australian Goods and Services Tax. As the MUA is incorporated in Western Australia, in accordance with Australian law, Australian members must pay GST on all transactions, including membership fees. All non-Australian members are exempt from Australian GST.
