Membership - how to join

EMLRA signWelcome to the membership page – the place to find out how to join, or renew your membership of EMLRA.

Full members pay a subscription, Associates (normally up to 2 in the same family) are free of charge, are very welcome and get their own membership card. There is no extra joining charge for new members.

There are two membership options:

  1. One year membership with Newsletter as a hard copy in printed form posted out to you - £22.50
  2. One year membership with Newsletter sent to you in electronic form - £17.50

Because of high postal costs, members outside UK can only normally have the Electronic Newsletter, but we are for the time being willing to oblige those who especially want the printed newsletter if they are happy to pay the additional overseas postage. If you want to do this contact the Membership Officer.

Payment may be made in several ways. We accept cheques, postal orders, bank transfer, standing orders and Paypal.
Please don't send cash, and if you do it is at your own risk. Membership applications and payments may be taken at some shows; make sure you get a signed receipt! Payments can only be accepted in Pounds Sterling. If this causes you a problem please contact us and we will try to find another way.

We aim to sign up everyone that applies within 14 days. However, due to the UK holiday and show season and the voluntary nature of our Committee there may be some delay in acknowledging new members and enquiries when most of us are mobilised at the many shows during that period and are busy with arrangements and organisation. Please be patient if your application doesn't get an immediate acknowledgement.

If you're an existing member please put in your membership number in any correspondence, it's a great help in identifying your record.

 

 

EMLRA Forum

Members have full access to the EMLRA  Forum and EMLRA FaceBook group. (The EMLRA Forum has always been free, you don't have to be in the EMLRA to join it. To avoid confusion though, if you join the EMLRA and want to also join in on the forum, you need to register again via the forum, the two processes are not connected. Remember to contact the Forum admin once you have registered there with your membership number and let them know who you are).
