Important Notice To Members: Change To Membership Renewal Date

Following on from recent discussions, the Executive Committee made the decision that the membership subscription renewal date should be changed from 31st December to 31st March for a number of reasons:-

  • The renewal activity would be taken away from the Christmas period
  • Less likelihood of renewals being lost in the Christmas post
  • Removes pressure from the Membership Secretary, who would be able to undertake the work away from the festive period.
