How to Renew
Log In and take the Link
Renewals fall due on 1st January each year. To renew your membership, you first need to be logged in to this site, using one of the "Log In" icons. Depending on which part of the website you come from, you will see different screens that have links to various renewal and membership pages. This is where it can be confusing when you want to renew. Screenshots are included here to make sure you can follow the correct path to renewal. You are actually looking for the "Member Login" page. Sorry for the confusing wording, but it makes sense for reasons not discussed here.
There are different options available from the main "Membership" menu and the top corner menu next to the "Logout" button. If you happen to take the "My Membership" link, you'll end up in the wrong place, as shown in Option 1. This is shown so you know what to do IF you see this screen, where you can use another link to get you to the right place. To get direct to renewal, you may use Option 2 or Option 3
Option 1 My Membership
IF YOU GET THE "MY MEMBERSHIP" PAGE, there is a drop-down menu at the bottom for people trying to Register for a NEW MEMBERSHIP. This is NOT where you renew!
Instead, if you're on this page, you need to click on the "VIEW MY MEMBERSHIPS" button to proceed. You'll then be taken to the "Member Login" page, as shown below.
Option 2 Admin
If you take the "Admin" link at the top of the page (next to the "LOGOUT" button), you will get taken to the correct place, the "Member Login" page, as shown below.
Option 3 Member Login
If you take the "Member Login" link from the main "Membership" menu, you will get taken to the correct place, the "Member Login" page, as shown below.
ONCE YOU GET TO THE "Member Login" PAGE, you are in the right place to RENEW.
From the "Membership" menu, select "My Memberships".
You will see your current membership level and expiry date. When it is time to renew, you will also see a "Renew now" option under the "Current Memberships" or "Actions" heading. The heading and the background colour change after the expiry date is reached (when you may still be in the grace period).
Renew Now and Choose your Combo
Select "RENEW NOW". When you renew as a Full member or Life member, you will be able to select various options from a drop-down menu that allow you to pay for Wiruna sites and related members, all in one go, with your renewal.
Add extra Products
When you proceed to the next step after making your selection, all renewing members will have the opportunity to purchase a yearbook, select posted UNIVERSE (costs extra) or make a donation to the ASNSW (the donation option is set up in $10 increments - any donation is completely optional but always greatly appreciated).
Note that if you select yearbooks, by default, the postage is added into the price. Don't panic! Proceed to the "Checkout" where you will have the option to select "Pickup" from the Delivery menu, e.g. if you plan to collect at a meeting at the ECC or at Wiruna. When you select "Pickup", you will see the price automatically adjust.
Make your Payment
Online payments are processed using your credit card in the payment processor - the payment processor does not leave the ASNSW website.
If you prefer not to pay online, select the offline payment option to pay by direct transfer to the ASNSW bank account within 7 days.
