Major Database Edit

 

Important information for account holders without subscriptions and current full members who have not yet renewed for 2021-2022

If you have recently joined/renewed for 2021-2022, thank you - you need to take no action!

We are changing the membership arrangements for AQMLM.
You may need to take action to retain your account. 
Please read these notes carefully.  Thank you!

Rationale

  • During October, November and December 2021, we are conducting a major edit of the website membership database - the first time in 12 years
  • This is necessary in order to remove hundreds of dormant accounts which have not been accessed in several years by people who have never been paid up members nor attended our events
  • We now intend to make AQMLM membership fully subscribed, so that all pay the £50 annual subscription fee.   This is explained in more detail in my Blog here.
  • All our members will then be able to engage with and enjoy our member benefits, principally 10 Zoom meetings during the year for no extra charge

Process

  • On 30th September 2021, the 2020-2021 subscription year will end and those that have not renewed for 2021-2022 will have AQMLM member status removed from their accounts
  • Early in October 2021, we will send a bulk email to all on the database indicating our intention to begin the database edit and invite them to pay their subscription if they wish to remain as members
  • From then until 31st December 2021, we will work through the database in blocks of about 50 accounts per week, firstly removing accounts which have not been accessed for a considerable time and where the holder has never been a subscribing member
  • It may not be possible for us to give individual notice of account deletion, but we will keep a record in our offline database and advise people in advance if we can
  • Eventually, by 31st December 2021, all website accounts where subscriptions have not been paid, will be deleted

If you wish to retain your website account and become a subscribing member

  • Please sign in to your website account as soon as possible any time now and before the end of September 2021, navigate to the Join AQMLM link under the Membership tab, and pay the £50 annual subscription fee.  There seems to be a problem with the online payment system so you will need to pay by bank transfer, or we can send you a personal invoice.  Please email us with your preference
  • While signed in, please take a moment to refresh your profile details, especially any changes to your email address, which is our primary means of communicating with you
  • If you have forgotten your login details, please email us or use the Contact form
  • If you intend to renew/join but need extra time beyond the end of September to pay your subscription, just email us as soon as possible and ask for your account to be protected from deletion.  We will send regular reminders and expect you to pay your subscription by the end of December 2021

If you no longer require your website account

  • You need do nothing - your website account will eventually be deleted
  • If you subsequently wish to re-join (and we hope you will!), you will need to apply again for a website account and pay the subscription
  • You may still attend our events as a non-member, but you will have to pay the one-off fee for each one

You can still stay in touch

  • If you like, we can move your name and email to an offline mail system (MailerLite) and send you occasional updates by this method.  Please go email us.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email us or use the Contact form.

Thank you!
