Join or Renew Membership

The easiest way to join CAPEA is below, online, paying via Paypal or credit / debit card (Visa or Mastercard).  Your fee is immediately tracked and receipted so you can quickly enjoy the benefits.

You may also choose to pay by direct debit, but PLEASE write your name on the bank transfer or we have no idea where the money came from and you would not get any membership benefits until details are clarified.

For those who wish to complete the paper version, it can be scanned and emailed to or posted to our national address; please note that it may take up to a month for a response from a posted form.  

If you believe that you have successfully transferred funds to our account by paypal, direct debit or cheque, and have not received a receipt within 4-6 weeks, please contact us with your details and bank receipt.
