The deadline for membership renewal was Wednesday, 31st May 2023. Any affiliations received after this date will need to be appealed to the Hearing Committee, in order to retain Voting rights for 2023/2024. The two-year rule applies to AGMs and Selection Conventions; members are required to have affiliated on time, both for the current year, and the previous year; a late affiliation breaks this continuity – and voting rights may only be protected if appealed successfully. As you are late affiliating, please send a note to email@example.com outlining the grounds for your appeal i.e. explaining why your membership renewal was late. In the absence of an appeal, successful or otherwise, you will still be regarded as an affiliated member.
