A special rate is available for persons residing outside Australia to enable them to become International Members of the Institute.

The benefits and privileges available to International Members are largely the same as for individual professional members, with the obvious exception of the ability to access local events and training. But when you are in Australia, we would enjoy seeing you at an event!

On application, new International Members are graded in one of the following categories according to their qualifications and experience.

Affiliate Member

Those working or interested in marketing, but without formal qualifications. Affiliate members may upgrade to Associate Member status upon completion of tertiary qualifications or attainment of significant practical experience in marketing.

Associate Member (AMAMI)

  • Holders of recognised tertiary (or degree) qualifications in marketing who have started an active career in marketing.
  • Those with significant practical marketing experience.

Associate Members have voting rights in AMI elections, are eligible for appointment to the National Board and to a state council if a CPM, and may display the postnominals AMAMI.

Associate Fellow (AFAMI)

  • Has been an Associate Member for three years or such shorter or longer period as determined by the national board at its discretion; and

  • Has been an Associate Fellow and CPM for at least five years, may apply for membership as a Fellow.
