PLA charges an annual fee to full members based on organisational income, as follows:

Associate members - Free
Less than £500,000 - £60
£500,000 to £1m - £70
£1m to 10m - £130
Over £10m - £260

The membership period runs from January to December each year.

The membership fee includes an annual fee for individual membership of the European Prison Education Association (EPEA), for the designated PLA representative.

Seats on the PLA steering committee are determined through elections in which all full members will be invited to vote. The steering committee meets quarterly to review the membership, agree the strategic direction of the PLA and progress against its objectives, and the formation and monitoring of any task and finish groups.

Please use this section to tell us who the named representative for your organisation will be.

This information (Question 21) will be shared with specific parties when considering your organisation’s application, and to compile statistics about the PLA membership. Neither member organisations nor their named representatives will be publicly identifiable in these statistics.
