Membership and Public Liability Insurance (PLI)

Renewal for 2021 – 2022

Some notes from the renewal Reminder letter –

This letter is sent to the authorised contact of your Society held in FAS records. If that contact has changed please ensure the new incumbent has received a copy of the email sent by FAS or has seen this page.

The new FAS subscription year runs from 1st April 2021 through to 31st March 2022. All FAS membership subscriptions are due to be paid by Wednesday 31st March 2021. After this date we may well incur administration fees from the insurer, and we will need to pass these on.

However, to take advantage of the Early Payment Discount* please renew now and ensure your payment reaches the FAS Bank Account by 20th March 2021.

Please check and if necessary update your record on the FAS’s membership database in Membermojo.

The FAS’s Membership and Renewal Database – Membermojo

Members’ details are now held in a package called Membermojo (for more details please look at the membermojo website, and the FAS membermojo guide to renewing).

Secure access is via an email sign-on link here: https://membermojo.co.uk/fas/renew

Enter the email you have registered with the FAS. Membermojo accepts only one email address; if you have multiple email addresses for your society and the one you enter does not work then please contact the FAS membership secretary or webmaster as soon as possible:

membership@fedastro.org.uk    webmaster@fedastro.org.uk

On your society’s record you will be able to update contact details and select the size of your society to generate the correct cost of membership. To take PLI insurance there is a tick box directly below the membership size drop-down menu.

The link https://membermojo.co.uk/fas/renew  takes you to the renewal page for your society once you have signed in.

  • Select the size of your society from the Membership dropdown; Small, Medium, Large, and numerical size.
  • Tick the PLI tick box if you require it.
  • Accept the Data Privacy Agreement, then click ‘Next’ at the bottom of the page.
  • You are then presented with a review page that includes your selected purchase items. If all is correct click the ‘Checkout’ button.

Payment Methods

Membermojo accepts PayPal, BACS transfers and Cheques.

You will receive an email reply at the email address you used with the payment reference. Please use this reference for BACS payments or add it to cheques as described below.

Payment by any of the methods must be for the total amount, including FAS subscription, PLI and any options.

IMPORTANT: You must update your Membermojo record for renewing, not simply just send payment.

If you have to pay by cheque (email the membership secretary for the postal address) please renew early, due to restrictive bank openings and travelling, and this also ensures your society benefits from the early discount.

Include:

  – your cheque payable to: Federation of Astronomical Societies – not ‘FAS’ as banks reject these

  – the name of your society in full, and the membermojo payment reference on the reverse

  – copy of the Membermojo confirmation email, to:

William Bottaci

Membership Secretary
