In 2013 the AIA became a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) with a new constitution and a new membership structure. You can see the constitution here. Members are either:

  • Ordinary Members: aged 18 or over, living or working within Fife Council’s East Neuk & Landward ward (click here for map).
  • Associate Members: aged 18 or over, living and working outwith Fife Council’s East Neuk & Landward ward. Associate Members get all the benefits of ordinary membership but may not stand for election to the board nor vote at any members’ meeting.

SCIO members have a legal duty to act in the interests of the SCIO and seek, in good faith, to ensure that the SCIO acts in a manner which is consistent with its charitable purposes (more information available here).

Individual membership is £10.00 per annum, with the membership year running from September to August. This may either be paid online (see below), paid on attendance at any of our events or paid by post, with cheques payable to Anstruther Improvements Association and addressed to AIA Membership Secretary, c/o 11 Bankwell Road, Anstruther KY10 3DA. Membership provides free entry to all Anster Nichts or Anster Nichts In, and the Christmas Social. Taking out an annual membership gives you a considerable saving as it costs non-members £3 to attend each Anster Nicht. For full details of all of this season’s events please visit our Events page.
