The Association’s making every effort to persuade members who are “unfinancial” to pay their annual subscription. Account Rendered notices are on the way to those who are in arrears.
"Members’ subscriptions are the main-stay of our income to finance Association’s activities”, President Selwyn Haworth says, “so it’s important all members pay their dues. With our enhanced data-base we are better able to identify and be in touch with members who have not yet paid this year’s subscription".
Treasurer Geoff Pownall estimates about 400 members have yet to pay this year (including 100 who have not paid last year’s subscription, either) and all will be receiving reminders about now, with the option to pay by direct credit or cheque.
The Association's Rules provide that membership "... may cease..." if subscriptions remain in arrears for two years.
