A friendly reminder

  • Please don’t forget to wear your membership lanyard and quote your membership number when booking and attending courses.
  • If you have booked into a course and later decide not to proceed, please advise the booking person so that others on a waiting list may attend.
  • As a courtesy to your course leader/presenter and fellow members, please remember to switch off, or silence, your phone during meetings and presentations.

Membership renewals

Whilst every effort is made by our volunteer management to remind you to renew your membership, occasionally (due to an incorrect email address or similar issue) the renewal notice goes astray.  Please check the renewal date on your membership card to see when your payment is due and take action if you haven’t received your reminder.

If your membership lapses by non-renewal there is no re-joining fee but it is made retrospective to when you became unfinancial.

You can join, renew and update your details here.
