Joining the Guild or renewing your membership is very easy to undertake using the Guild's e-Commerce service. The service links to PayPal to securely take your payment using credit/debit cards or a PayPal account. Once you have completed the membership transaction you will receive two e-mails, one from the e-Commerce service to confirm the transaction and show you the details that you have entered. The other e-mail is a payment reciept from PayPal. Please ensure that you enter your e-mail address correctly in the e-Commerce service and PayPal. The e-Commerce service is a quick and convenient way of undertaking membership transactions for both yourself and the Guild so please give it a try.
Guild membership year runs from January to December and renewal forms are issued with the November issue of the Guild's magazine, called Overdrive. The forms can be used to pay for membership by cheque. However, a large and increasing number of members are using the Guild's e-Commerce service to pay their subscription using credit/debit cards or a PayPal account. Direct bank transfer of membership subscriptions is also possible using the bank details provided on the renewal forms. New members can join at any time in the membership year. They pay the full annual subscription amount from January until end of June which results in all previous Overdrive magazines for the year being included as part of their Welcome Pack. Those who join from July until end December can choose to pay for the full year or the final half year. Those who choose the full year will recieve all six Overdrive magazines of the membership year. Those who choose the half year option will recieve the final 3 Overdrive magazines of the membership year.
Joining the Guild before buying a P4 is a useful approach as you can meet up with other owners at Regional Group meetings and seek their advice. You will also have access to the Guild committee for any query you have about P4 ownership. To join before you own a P4, simply tab over the car details when in the e-Commerce service to the page where you enter your personal details. Once you have purchased a P4 please contact our Membership Secretary to advise on your P4's details so that we can ensure that your membership details are up to date.
If you are joining the Guild for the first time, you can enter details of up to three P4s in your ownership within the e-Commerce service before entering your personal details. If you are fortunate enough to own more than three P4s please complete the e-commerce transaction and directly e-mail our Membership Secretary with the remaining car details. (Yes we do have such fortunate members!)
If you are renewing your Guild membership, and your car details haven't changed since the previous year, simply enter "No Change" in the Vehicle 1 Model field and skip over all of the other vehicle fields until you reach the personal details page.
