IMPORTANT! Joining IPMS or renewing membership

No further applications to join IPMS or to renew membership can be made until after Scale ModelWorld

  • This is to allow for processing and sending out of membership cards already in hand.
  • The membership admin site will re-open for new memberships and renewals after 14th November 2016

Important Membership Information – 23rd October 2016

This is traditionally our busiest time for renewals and new memberships but this year we have had an unprecedented volume of people asking to join or renew in the past couple of months and this has placed significant strain on an already busy membership administration system.

We are trying to process them as quickly as we can but it is taking time and may result in some members not receiving their membership cards in time for Scale ModelWorld.

We hope it won’t be necessary, but if we are unable to send out the cards in time to reach some members, there will be a collection point in the main foyer at Telford from 08:15 on Saturday, 12th November 2016.

Part of the problem this year has been the number of ‘late’ renewals adding pressure to an already busy time of year. We would strongly encourage everyone to renew on time in 2017 so we can avoid similar problems occurring next year.

Please also note that we are unable to complete any new Direct Debit mandates prior to Scale ModelWorld as it takes time for them to go through the banking system and they won’t be ‘live’ before the show.

We’d like to apologise for any inconvenience this situation may cause. The volume of interest in the Society, whilst gratifying, is pushing the limits of our current resources. The membership administration is carried out by volunteers in their spare time and as such, there is a limit to what we can
achieve in the time available.

IPMS (UK) Membership Secretary
