Member Fees

Member fees

TIA membership is a must for any tourism related venture.

TIA member fees are based on the size of the organisation or hotel room numbers:

  • Annual turnover under $6 million - fees are based on the number of employees in the organisation
  • Annual turnover more than $6 million - fees are based on turnover
  • Hotels contributing to TIA’s hotel data survey – fees are based on room numbers

We rely on members’ honesty to ensure everybody makes a fair contribution to supporting our work.

Fees can be paid by credit card, direct credit, cheque or a monthly direct debit.

Calculate your Full Time Equivalent (FTE) Staff

To calculate your FTE staff numbers, simply multiply the number of staff of each type you employ by the relevant number to reach your A, B and C totals. Add these together to calculate your FTE staff numbers.

Full time staff  (  ) x 1.0 = Total A 
Permanent part time staff  (  ) x 0.5 = Total B 
Fixed term/seasonal staff  (  ) x 0.4 = Total C 
Full time equivalent (FTE) staff  A+B+C = Total FTE
