How to become a member of TCES – new registration and payment system

Dear all

As we are approaching the early bird registration deadline for the TCES 2017 conference, I wanted to highlight to you that membership of the society is now administrated through our new website.

This online system will allow you the ability to join the society, to pay membership fees through PayPal (note that you don’t need a PayPal account to do this), to update your details if they change, and to generate a membership certificate with a membership number. 

Further details can be found at the webpage above for those joining the society for the first time and for those who have been members previously.

Please note that we are no longer accepting membership applications through the former Word document form.  If you pay by standing order (please cancel this) or have paid recently by BACS transfer, please let me know and I will confirm payment and update your details on our membership database.
