Newsletters from APS

We regularly receive hard copies of newsletters from related ANPSA organisations in other parts of Australia, which are distributed to each branch for members to read.  We are now receiving digital copies of some of these newsletters which may be downloaded – MEMBERS ONLY.  Only the current copy will be available for download due to size restrictions.  On our website now – Members Only – are newsletters from TasmaniaNSWVictoria – all December 2019.  Go to the newsletters page here.

Are you in arrears? Renew now!

We have 46 members who are in the 3 month ‘grace’ period, and 34 members who have expired since 1 October !  These members will not be receiving the next Newsletter (due in Feb) or Update about the State Council Meeting, also in February.

Renewals can be made online on the ‘My Membership’ page – which is under the ‘Members’ main menu.  This Members Only area requires a password, although if you have previously logged into the system (on the same computer or device) you should get automatic entry.

Once on the ‘My Membership’ page, you will see the word ‘Renew’ in very small letters under your membership type.  Press the words and follow the instructions!

If you have any trouble renewing, or logging in, please email memberships@wildflowersocietywa.org.au for assistance from a volunteer member.

Of course, you can always renew in the usual way – with a cheque by post, or by telephoning the office during normal business hours and providing details over the phone.  The paper renewal form can be downloaded here.

Thank you for your support!

Congrats Greg and Bronwen

Congratulations to Bronwen and Greg Keighery on their Australia Day honours, from all of us at the Wildflower Society. Greg and Bronwen are founding Perth Branch members and have been on the Perth Branch Committee since inception, only retiring last June after 33 years. Well deserved – ‘For service to conservation and the environment.’

Renewing your membership?

The credit card payment facility is NOW WORKING on our website!

  • You can renew online – using either payment method: ‘cheque’ or ‘credit card’.  The ‘cheque’ payment method also allows bank to bank transfers, so you can do everything electronically if you don’t wish to post a cheque.  Be sure to put your name and/or invoice number on the bank transfer so we credit it to the correct account.
  • Ring Perry House during business hours and renew by phone, using your credit card.  Tues or Thurs, 10am – 2.30pm 9383-7979

Remember, all renewals are processed by volunteers several days after they are received, so your payment may not be reflected for up to a week.  If you have any questions, email us at memberships@wildflowersocietywa.org.au

Note:  the ‘Donate’ facility is not working at present.
