We are upgrading our membership processes. To provide a better member experience, to be more efficient, to reduce staff time and therefore reduce cost to members we are moving to a calendar year online process. All members fees will come due at the same time - 1 March. Payments will be made online and receipts generated automatically. Fees will be pro rated and no invoices sent for November and December.
