Instructions

We've tried to make the process of registering as a member and making payments as simple as possible. We've also written a set of instructions that you can download and print, to help keep you on the right track, and to tick off as you go along. If you get really stuck or make a horrendous mistake, you can request assistance via the Help form at the bottom of the Membership menu.

Important note regarding January 2018 subscription payments

Annual subscriptions for 2018 become due on 1st January, and payment is expected on all renewals before the end of January. A £5 administration fee will be added to annual subscription payments received from 1st February onwards. You can register as a member AND authorise payment at any time in 2017, but no money will be taken from your bank account until 1st January 2018. Subsequent annual payments will always be taken on 1st January.

Alternatively, you may choose to pay quarterly by card or direct debit. Your subscription will start immediately, and you will be automatically debited at exactly one quarter of the prevailing annual subscription rate every three months. For this option, we recommend that you register as a member in 2017, but don't authorise your subscription payment until January 2018. You are of course welcome to pay earlier, but your 2017 and 2018 subscriptions will overlap. We will not issue refunds for the overlap due to the staff time involved, and additional bank charges that would be incurred.
