BRMNA Membership



(Last September 1st, 2016)


Membership

The BRMNA membership year runs from September 1st of one year until August 31st of the following year and we are now about to start the 2015/16 membership year. It entitles members to receive the BRMNA Journal (6 per year), the annual BRMNA membership directory and to register in and use the features of the BRMNA member zone.

The BRMNA Journal can be provided to you in printed form or in electronic form.

If you elect to receive the Journal in printed form it will be mailed to you. You can also access it in electronic form at no additional cost through the member zone.

If you elect to receive the Journal in electronic form you will be notified by email of its availability as soon as it is accessible in the member zone.

The annual BRMNA membership directory that includes the name, contact information and modelling interests of each member is provided in printed form only. It is published at the same time as the November/December issue of the Journal and is mailed to paid up members along with their membership card.

Note that all members, whether they decide to get the printed or the electronic version, should register for the member zone as it contains benefits that are accessible only to members or which, in the case of second hand sales, are accessible to members before being made available to anyone else.

Membership fees:

The annual membership fee depends on the form in which you wish to receive the BRMNA Journal and on your mailing address.

The membership fee for new members is $15 higher for the first year to cover the one time cost of the engraved name badge and crest.

The membership fee for those who were previously members who are rejoining after a break in membership is $5 higher for the first year to cover administrative setup costs.

The following tables show the membership fees for the membership year 2016-2017:
