The Board has decided to keep the membership fee for Afrilex at the symbolic R150 per year. Running an association costs money and the membership fees we collect do not even cover that cost at present. Advantages of your membership:

— Membership of a respected association, with active links to its sisters associations (i.e. Euralex, Asialex, Australex and the DSNA);
— Members are offered a substantial discount at the annual international Afrilex conference (a discount largely equivalent to the membership fee);
— Members may attend workshops and seminars organised by Afrilex free of charge;
— Only Members have the right to vote at the AGM;
— Members can share the available expertise through dedicated channels, for example the Afrilex Mailing List;
— Members save 30% off Oxford University Press dictionary products;*
— Members receive a substantial discount on a subscription to the International Journal of Lexicography (IJL).**

* The discount will be valid for the purchase of any local (South African) or imported OUP dictionaries, but also for any related lexicographical products (e.g. The Oxford Guide to Practical Lexicography by Sue Atkins and Michael Rundell). Note that this discount will apply only to fully paid-up members of Afrilex and that the board has supplied a list of these members to OUP's Customer Services Department. In order to claim the discount, Afrilex members have to order via e-mail ( and have to mention prominently in their order that they are Afrilex-members.
** See the IJL web page for details.

Membership is R150 (US $50) per year. Corporate membership is R600 (Africa) and US $200 (outside Africa). Members from abroad who are not from the USA should pay the equivalent of US $ 50 in their own currency, e.g. Pounds drawn on a UK Bank, Euros in the Euro zone, etc. Due to the large amounts charged for bank commission by the banks of members as well as our bankers, members are advised to pay for two or three years in advance. Members from Africa can also pay for up to three years in advance if they so wish.
