We welcome anyone involved in the practice or enjoyment of sacred music to become members of PRISM.  

There are three tiers of PRISM membership you can apply for - Member, Associate & Fellow.  Honorary Fellow is granted by the Board for outstanding contributions.

Note: there is currently no membership fee but this will be reconsidered in 2025.

There is no requirement to first be a Member before applying for Associate. All applications must first be approved by the Board of Directors before an applicant becomes an Associate.

Honorary Fellow

This highest level of recognition is reserved for those persons deemed to have made a significant personal contribution to PRISM and its aims. The awarding of an Honorary Fellow of PRISM (HonFPRISM) is by way of recommendation to and upon the discretion of the Board of Directors.

Membership fees

Membership

While PRISM is a Not-for-Profit organisation, there are associated running costs. Following a decision by the Board of Directors back in 2021, a three-year hiatus on membership fees was instituted. This was in acknowledgement of the growing unfavourable economic climate and global disruption in the wake of Covid-19. The Board is due to revisit this decision in 2025; any decision to re-institute a membership fee will be communicated to members through our Facebook social media platforms.  Meanwhile donations are very welcome to assist with our projects and running costs.
