Please use the main website for membership admin.

We have changed our software on Sat 23 March 2019; if your membership (made on this website) is expiring, both the old and the new systems will send you emails (for now). If you renew now on the new system (that is, on the main website), the new system may still send you a reminder (pointing you to this separate membership website).

We will shut down the old system as soon as possible, once we're certain as much data as possible has been transferred and all correctly, thus stopping the superfluous/outdated warnings.

Please do log in on the regular website to see the correct, updated situation of your subscription. If those data seem wrong, please contact to sort it out.
