If your Application for Membership occurs between August and the following May, your initial period of Membership and Insurance is not a full 12 months until the first renewal for the subsequent period of a full year. Due to the initial period being less than a year for both membership and insurance a discount is applied to membership and insurance is already a very competitive rate. Renewals are due in the month of June for the following 12 month period.
b) The Renewal Date shown on your Tax Invoice / Receipt is incorrect and is a Computer Program glitch. The Alliance is preparing a now Computer Program that does not give us these headaches.
