It’s that time of year where reminders to subscription-paying members about membership renewals are issued. Your annual membership subscription can be paid at a Branch or Network event. If this is option is not suitable, there are alternate, safe options to replace the in-person approach. You can ask your bank to assist by making a one-off payment. Asking your bank to set up your membership renewal payment at the same time each year is another option. Otherwise internet and phone banking are options to pay your annual subscription. A renewal form that may be useful when renewing your membership is included in Focus.Page 28 of 32
