The membership subscriptions for the Manawatu Amateur Radio Society have been agreed at the August AGM at $50 for a full member and $60 for a family membership.  The Committee is aware of the difficulties some members may have in paying this as a single payment so have decided to offer members an alternative payment scheme whereby members can pay their subs as five $10 payments for full members or six $10 payments for a family subscription.

Payment can be made Cash, Direct Debit or Automatic Payment.   If you choose to pay by direct debit or automatic payment, details for the bank statement to identify the payment as from you are shown below.  The treasurer will provide a receipt for any payments made by cash.

  • Account Name: Manawatu Amateur Radio Society
  • Account Number: 03-1522-0161009-00
    • Please use the following details when making payment:
      • Particulars: Annual Subs
