What is a pro-forma tax invoice?
The pro-forma GST tax invoice issued for membership renewal is an ATO approved tax invoice. It is specifically designed for membership organisations who cannot enforce membership but must invite you to join or renew. Once payment is made against the pro-forma it automatically becomes a standard GST tax invoice/receipt. When payment is made a tax invoice/receipt will also be issued.
How do I join my local branch of ALGA?
ALGA is an organisation where branches are fully integrated into the organisational structure. When you join ALGA you are automatically joined to your local branch.

Provided you have individual membership status, your membership will be valid for the remainder of the year. If you are a nominated corporate sponsor member, then this will not be transferable and you will need to take out an individual membership when changing employers.
As an ALGA Corporate Sponsor are all our employees eligible for ALGA member discounts for events and products?
