[ASC-list] ASC new membership and renewal offer - a clarification

Dear ASC members (and those thinking of becoming members),


Early last year we made 1 September the annual renewal date for all ASC
members. This meant some members' annual subscriptions would expire at
various dates before 1 September 2010. 


To speed the renewal process we recently offered members who needed to renew
between July and 1 September a special inducement; by renewing their annual
subscription promptly they would get the period between their expiration
date and 1 September 2010 for free. 


Unfortunately glitches happen and this offer went to most members instead of
just those whose renewal date was between early July and 31 August.
Understandably this caused some confusion for those whose subs were due on 1
September and a few members thought they may have been missing out on a free


Our annual membership fee is a low $88 and we manage a tight budget. I
apologise for the confusion but this offer is only for those whose
subscription renewal falls in the early July - 31 August period.


I hope this explains the nature of this one-off offer and that it wasn't
meant to give all members up to two free months on the annual subscription.
Instead we are working on other means to provide value and meaning of an ASC
membership this coming subscription year. One such example is the
professional development workshops in Sydney which offer a very favourable
members' discount (see
http://www.asc.asn.au/2010/07/climate_change_workshops/ ). Check the website
for news of other upcoming plans. 


Remember that annual subs for most members become due on 1 September.

Cost of membership:

*	Individual membership is $88 per annum (incl. GST)
*	Student membership (with appropriate ID) is $35.20 (incl. GST)
*	Associate membership (with explanation) is $35.20 (incl. GST)
*	Corporate membership is $528 (incl. GST).


As always I appreciate your feedback and put effort into making your great
suggestions a reality.
