Join or Renew Membership

The easiest way to join CAPEA is via our own secure online portal, with payment via Paypal or your own credit / debit card (Visa or Mastercard).  Your membership fee is immediately tracked and receipted so you can quickly enjoy the benefits.

You may also choose to pay by Direct Deposit, but PLEASE write your name in the reference section or we have no idea where the money came from and you would not get any membership benefits until details are clarified. Better still, please email us the copy of your transaction, an option offered by many banks as part of your online transfer process. 

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

It is no longer possible to join or renew membership of CAPEA via paper applications or payment via cheques.
