AVSFHG MEMBERSHIP APPLICATION
Read «About us and what we do» here to appreciate the advantages of joining. Annual subscriptions are —
|Individual (with correspondence and updates by email)||£6.00|
|Individual with Newsletter and/or agendas POSTED||✉︎ £10.00|
|Household (with correspondence & updates by email)||£10.00|
|Household with Newsletter and/or agendas POSTED||✉︎ £14.00|
Our bank details can be found here — your bank will usually annotate your transfer with sufficient detail to identify your payment to us, but we will always contact you within a few days, whatever happens. We aren't authorised to offer a Direct Debit facility, although you might consider setting up a Standing Order for early January in future years.
If, instead, you wish to pay by cheque or cash, you'll probably find it easier NOT to apply online, but rather to download a physical form as explained below, if only for the Membership Secretary's postal address. ❋
As for completion of this application form, the GDPR provisions are indicated below. Also, please note that our quarterly Newsletter and AGM Agenda (etc) are normally sent out by email.
However, if you prefer either or both by post, then supply your home address, tick the relevant box(es) and include the extra ✉︎£4.00 in your remittance (to defray our printing and P&P costs) — but do consider that email recipients of the Newsletter have the photos in colour and without ink smudges, and can enlarge anything they can't read. Also, "by-post" Members miss out on our urgent email updates about local events, genealogy-website offers and other information.
You should certainly hear back from us within 48 hours or so. If you don't, please email the Treasurer, in case communications have failed somewhere in the system.
If, having joined, you wish to "book for our next Zoom talk", click here, and then on the blue button there — please mention in your email that you have just paid to join as a Member, to help us recognise you and make the connection. Thank you.
❋ If you prefer not to apply online, you can download an Application Form from the head of our «Membership» page here for printing out, completion and then return to the Membership Secretary. Full instructions appear on the physical form.
Incidentally, we also have a parallel, but separate,
closed Facebook group, membership of which is free.
GENERAL DATA PRIVACY REGULATION (GDPR)
Please read our current GDPR webpage AND, by ticking the relevant box(es), consent to the personal details you supply being stored on our database to facilitate the Group's administration. Information will not be shared with third parties.
You can withdraw your consent at any time by advising the Membership Secretary in writing.
Be aware that photos are taken at some events (including screenshots during Zoom sessions), potentially for our website and/or Newsletter. Please advise the photographer (or Zoom session host) if you don't wish to appear in any pictures.
