Important news - TAS Membership SUBSCRIPTIONS - PayPal

Please note that TAS have had to change their PayPal account to a business account.  This has no impact whatsoever on subscription charges for the members.  However, the consequences of this are that all auto renewals have had to be cancelled as we cannot move them to the new account.  What it means is that you will have to re-apply and pay via the Website when your subscription is due - we will send reminders out to people if you are not sure (example if your subscription is due in November, you will have to do this in November) Click the “Join TAS” tab and click on the type of membership required and follow the instructions.

 My sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused, but rest assured we are not intending to raise the annual subscriptions, this is purely an administrative process.

 Thank you for your understanding

 Best Regards

 Debbie Riley - TAS Secretary
