MEMBERSHIP FEES...IMPORTANT INFORMATION
How much does it cost to join Northampton Ramblers?
The annual membership charge is £5 per annum.
When is the membership fee due to be paid?
The fees, according to our constitution, are to be paid at the AGM (held in October each year) but we give members until the end of October. The reason the card date goes up to 31st December, is we send the renewed membership cards out with your December newsletter (unless paid at the AGM or a self- addressed envelope is provided at the time of payment), so members wouldn't get their new card until sometime in December and that might be too late, if they need a `valid dated` card to obtain a discount at Blacks etc during the Christmas period (i.e buying Christmas presents).
The reason we don't send the membership card out immediately the £5 is received, is to save on postage costs (the clubs second highest expenditure each year) ...... and a cost we are trying very hard to reduce, thus the reason for asking for member's e-mail addresses and in doing so, we will be able to maintain the current membership fee....at just £5.
