2018 Renewals and Yearbooks - Grace Period ends 31 March

Hi folks,

Time to renew for 2018 if you haven't already renewed. Check if you are up to date by making sure that you are logged in and clicking "Renew membership" on the left-hand block of the home page. It shows your paid-to date in the green band at the top.

Renewing online is easy. Click on the "Renew membership" link in the left-hand block of the home page, fill in the boxes, check your details and follow the payment instructions. There is a step-by-step guide here: http://www.asnsw.com/node/678

Simplified Renewals for Multiple Memberships (yours and "Related")

From 2016, a new field has been added to the Memberhip Renewal page to allow you to renew for any number of other related members (full, associate or student) at the same time as you do your own renewal. The field is for a $26 payment. Select 1 unit for a related student or associate member and 2 units for a related full member. Note that this process is NOT automatic and database updates to the related memberships must be made manually by the treasurer, so I need to have your relationships on record. However, this does streamline the renewal process at your end.
