UKRA 2014 Membership Renewal

Dear 2013 Members,

Please see the following update regarding membership renewal for 2014:

2014 FEES:
Please see http://www.ukra.org.uk/join for the current UKRA Membership rates for 2014. They remain largely unchanged from 2013. The only change lies in the upgrade fee for members who choose to join the BMFA directly and UKRA separately. Last year we charged £2.50 to cover the admin, BMFA checking and card re-printing. We have decided that this year, existing BMFA members who send a scan of their 2014 BMFA card, or clubs who confirm a member’s BMFA status will be upgraded from Associate to Full member free of charge.

2014 GENERAL RENEWAL INFORMATION:
