Completing the application form
What are the various options ?
(numbers as on the order form, which can be found here: eGGSA membership application form)
1. Membership runs from January to December of the calendar year, regardless of when you join.
2. This section has three options.
The first, the default, is to join the eGGSA branch, whether for the first time or as a renewal of existing membership.
The second option is to join one of the land based branches (selectable) as your main branch, with eGGSA privileges. (in this case you will receive eGGSA newsletters and journal, have access to members areas of the web site, but no voting rights in the eGGSA branch. Your voting rights will be with your land based branch. You will also receive any publications of your land based branch which are included in its membership fee.)
The third option only applies if you are already paid up as an eGGSA member for the subscription year in question. So, if you have already paid your memberhsip fee to the GSSA or one of is branches for the subscription year 2009, you may, with this option, add eGGSA privileges to your existing land based branch membership, giving you then a membership as per the second option above.
