UK Subscriptions by Cheque and Standing Orders

For postal subscriptions initiated by cheque and application form, the annual subscription is due on January 1st each year. The subscription includes a copy of the current volume of the Society's annual publication, The Powys Journal, as well as three issues of the Society's Newsletter. If you join after the annual conference in August, your subscription will continue till the end of December of the following year, and you will receive all newsletters from the date of joining. However, you will not receive The Powys Journal for the current year unless you have additionally paid for it at the members' price (see list of publications).

Standing Orders

Applicants for UK membership who prefer to pay from a bank account are encouraged to pay their subscription by Standing Order. If you are a UK taxpayer, please help by signing a gift aid declaration as well.

The great advantage to you is that you will not need to remember to pay your subscription each year; and the great advantage to the Society, and especially to our Treasurer, is that we will not need to send out reminders.
