*These benefits are not included with the Free Student membership. Free Student membership is for people attending a full-time course in secondary or tertiary education (undergraduate or postgraduate) at a recognised educational institution (school, university or TAFE), and are not yet meaningfully employed in the electricity profession. Free Student membership allows attendance at events without cost, but does not allow access to EESA's extensive resource library, nor does it allow voting rights.
