Membership Renewal for 2021-22 (old)

Our membership year ended on 31 March.  Your membership fee for 2021-22 is due on 1 April and is payable by 30 April 2021.

 Last year the Board postponed membership renewal until July and reduced fees because of COVID-19 related restrictions on club activities.  The Board has decided this year to return to the normal renewal schedule and fees because our bowls program is expected to be close to normal and bridge in the club rooms is resuming albeit with COVID safety constraints.

Payment

A schedule of fees for 2021-22 and a payment advice slip can be downloaded here:  Payment Advice 2021  We prefer payment by bank transfer as this is the most administratively simple and secure method.  Last year about 90% of payments were made by bank transfer and we urge all members to use this payment method this year if possible.  Payment can be made online or over the counter at your bank.  If you normally do not use online banking, ask a family member to help you or to make a payment on your behalf.

Pay to this account:  North Balwyn Bowls Club   BSB: 063 130 Account No.: 1032 0873

In the transaction description enter your Name and Mship, e.g. Jill Doe Mship.

Some banks don’t give us the sending account name so we need your name in the transaction description to identify your payment.

The only other payment option this year is by cheque.  If paying by cheque, please fill in the payment advice on the schedule of fees and put it in an envelope with your cheque.  This will enable us to keep track of your payment.  Mail it or put the envelope in the Club’s letterbox in Buchanan Avenue or in the labelled white collection box in the clubrooms near the pennant board.

 Renewal information

This year again we are collecting renewal information via an online form.  This makes it easier for members to provide the information and easier for us to process the information.  Members found last year that it is not difficult to use the form even for those with limited computer skills.  Ask a family member to help you if needed.  Please take the couple of minutes needed and fill in the form and help us keep our membership records accurate and complete.  Click here to go to online form.  See below for tips on using the form.

Please complete a separate form for each member.  Receiving a single form for a couple of members complicates processing and record keeping for us.  (Combined payments are OK as long as the members are clearly identified.)
