The summary

At the commencement of 2019, there were 209 active and complimentary members.  We now have 218.

 

The detail

As at 6 July 2019, 126 members have paid for annual memberships for 2019, with 12 more people who have taken up three year memberships (2019-2021).

When added to the members already on three year memberships (31 three year memberships taken up in 2017 and 2018), a total of 171 members – so far – are financial and hence ‘active’ for 2019.  Further we have 12 new and returned members (i.e. they have not paid for more than one year) and also 26 complimentary members.

There are still 21 members (11% of the total) who need to renew to maintain their ‘active’ status, and they are being sent monthly reminders.  We urge these members to renew as soon as possible so they can continue to access ARS services, in particular concessional registration for the Canberra conference.

Overall therefore, we have 171* paid members at this time, which compares favourably with 163 for the whole of 2018.
