The BMFA online portal for new and renewing country membership for 2018 is now active.

**LINK**

2017 has been a great year for the BMFA and model aircraft flying, lets make 2018 even better.

NUMBERS DO COUNT!

The BMFA's strengths are its proven expertise and its membership. Without the backing of its clubs and members we could not have accomplished the many things that have given us national and international credibility and recognition. The sheer weight of numbers of model aircraft fliers we represent has enabled us to be heard at the highest levels. Therefore, we require continuing support as without you the BMFA would not exist: your membership and club affiliation is important so that we can continue to represent the interests of all modellers in the UK.

Andy, I hope 2018 is better. Not much flying done on account of the windy weather this year. Next year we have the proposed UAV legislation, ( I will refrain from calling it drone for obvious reasons). All the best for 2018 and thankyou BMFA for the use and assistance with the simulator trailer.

Andy - Just joined for another year on line. All went smoothly and took a few minutes.

One minor comment, I missed the survey link on the member' details page but saw it on the second look when I put my new telephone number in.

Perhaps the link could be more obvious as the survey is about Country members who are also members of BMFA Affiliated Clubs.

Andy.

yes for the BMFA's renewals portal. I've been membership secretary of my club for twenty years and the on-line portal has simplified greatly the task of processing 120 members with their varying membership requirements.

Best wishes for a positive and successful model flying 2018 to all.

Yes - as the person who does the renewls for our club and deals with membership issues I have to say the BMFA Club Portal has been a real plus. Credit where it is due it s a step forward and a great benefit to those of us charged with this task - much better than the old sticker system!

PS See, I can find positive things to say about BMFA wink 2

I am a Country member, signed up again the other day, I am in three clubs so don't want to show any favoritism. LOL

I love the stickers

Hi Tom,

I think we maybe at cross purposes! I am not talking about the BMFA circular sticker - I'm refering to the sheets of peel-off stickers with names, address and membership numbers that used to come with the club affiliation packs prior to the portal to allow membership secretaries to renew members without having to reenter everyone's details on the form.

I am responsible for the membership in our Club as well. The new system of on line renewals is a huge improvement together with the facility for on line payments. There is one further improvement that could take us up a further level. It would be useful to be able to print off a list of members from the the website to be able to check our work without having to wait for the list that comes with the certificates.

I did email the BMFA about this but didn't get a reply. (which I am afraid is quite typical).

Dreaming on........Having electronic certificates for one's smart phone would take us into the 2010's and save alot of messing about as well as postage. Maybe by 2025?!

You will receive an email in the next day or so with details of how to log in to the new membership system and from there can download and print your membership documents. Club secretaries and membership secretaries have already received theirs. Notice will be going out to all other members over the weekend. Assuming of course we have an email address for you.

Me neither! I handle all of the memberships for my club - have done for several years - and I had a log in for the old portal that gave me access to club membership and renewals etc. But I've received no emails or information about the new system?

Sent you a message.

If either your lead club is different to the club you look after membership for, or you are a country member you won't receive the email because the old system didn't record you of a member of the club. There is also a chance the email address was incorrect on the old data too.

The email only went to club secretaries and membership secretaries too, some club admin on the old system didn't hold either role.

The new system is far in advanced of the previous so there will by neccessity be some manual data changes we need to make.
