For Members

The option to pre-pay your 2018 meeting fees is being implemented for the coming year. Members wishing to prepay meeting fees can do so via the PayPal button below. There are two options: a six-month advance prepayment or a one year option that offers a discount.

Note: This is for the 6 meetings from the date of the pre-payment, not for a random set of meetings. The 12-month option is for the 2018 calendar year. If you are not a regular attendee, we advise against the pre-pay option.
