Purchase Membership on line

The Association has entered into an agreement with PayPal to allow members to pay their membership fees on-line. The process is similar to other on-line purchase process but for those no familiar with it, the area below explains the process and answers some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).

For multiple memberships, paid by a single credit card, simply continue shopping by adding all the required memberships to the cart before checking out. For multiple memberships paid on separate credit cards you will need to checkout for each card.

Options are available for both 1 and 3 year memberships

Although membership fees can be paid on-line, the situation may arise where the member has mistakenly joined under an incorrect membership class. Therefore the Association reserves the right to suspend any membership until the correct fees have been paid for the class of membership required.
