If you already have a bank standing order payment instruction in place you need do nothing more than relax and enjoy another year of gauge one with the Association. Thank you for paying by standing order, it really does help with the admin.
If you are opening a Standing Order using the form that came with your NL&J note that this should be sent to your Bank not to Warners.
If paying by cheque please make it payable to G1MRA Ltd and send to G1MRA Membership, Warners Group Publications, West Street, Bourne, PE10 9PH.
Payment may also be made by credit or debit card. By telephone to Warners on 01778 392479, or online which also includes Pay Pal at the link at https://subscribeme.to/g1mra and click on "renew subscription". On line payments need the Warners subscriber reference number, E............., shown on the NL&J mailing envelope, or phone Warners.
CHANGE TO DEADLINE DATES FOR THE NL&J.
For many years, the dates chosen for our AGM have slipped backwards from the 30th of November in 1996, the year we agreed to become a limited Company, to this year’s date of the 14th of October. No doubt because members preferred to avoid November travel, with poor weather and the loss of daylight in the evenings due to the clocks being put back.However, this has increasingly put pressure on our ability to meet the requirements of the companies act, when 21 days’ notice of an AGM must be given in writing to members.I won’t bore you with the complications of this matter, but will assure you that members of the Committee and Directors have spent many hours working on this problem, and are pleased to say a solution has been found and that includes a change to the deadlines listed below, for the noted issues.
Year 2017. 254 15th May. 255 1st August. 256 1st November.
Year 2018. 257 1st February. 258 15th April. 259 15th July. 260 15th October
Year 2019. 261 15th January. 262 15th April. Etc.: Etc.:
Obviously, the months of publication are also changing, and two good things to come from this change are, a Pre-Christmas Edition, and a reduction in postage costs. The second is because your calendar will now be sent with the December Edition and not with that for the AGM edition in September, putting both in the same envelope used to put our postage costs over the limit.I am advised that some Advertisers will enjoy the benefits of a Pre-Christmas Edition, so I ask them to note the changes and dates and to contact our advertising manager ASAP.
These changes will be noted in the information panel, found towards the rear of the NL&J.
