Preparations for publication of November SMT and Bulletin through Warners are almost complete. Printing and distribution are scheduled for the end of next week, meaning that members will start receiving their magazines from W/C 16th November onwards. As usual, the reverse side of the address carrier sheet used to mail the package will provide you with an opportunity to review your data. The format is the same as in previous years, but with the move of subscription management to Warner Group Publications, the place that you supply changes to has changed, so please follow the instructions on the form. Great care has gone into migration and subsequent review of the data, but I nevertheless strongly recommend that you review it to confirm accuracy and completeness.

Please also note that a Direct Debit mandate is included for UK residents wishing to renew their membership for another year in 2016. If you choose to use this facility, please note that the payment will not be requested from your bank account until the start of the new subscription year, i.e. 1st March 2016. Also, like any Direct Debit, it can be cancelled by you at any time. I hope that many of you will find this new facility convenient and useful.

Alan Regan, Chairman & Membership Secretary
