Standard Membership (UK): TRACKS is posted out as the default option. However you can also chose additionally to have TRACKS by email, please choose the correct box.
Once address is confirmed you will be notified of your membership number if you wish to order books etc. prior to receiving your welcome pack. Your membership card, constitution, order form and latest issue of TRACKS will then be posted to you BUT ONLY after you have confirmed that your address is correct. This is due to increasing numbers of applications being made where the PayPal account address is not the correct current one involving extra postage costs, delay and the loss of a copy of TRACKS.
eMembership (UK & Overseas): TRACKS is sent by email only.
For both types the email pdf version will be sent shortly after TRACKS has gone to the printers about 10 days in advance of you receiving the printed version in the post.
For both Standard Membership and eMembership options. You can chose to change your Membership type and amend your TRACKS delivery on Renewal
